Walking between the animals
Jul 2020
This is a nice and small zoo where you can walk in between various animals, like wallabies, dears, owls, parakeets and other birds, prairie dogs, etc. There are no giant animals like giraffes, elephants and bears and it has also a lot of animals which you also see in a petting zoo, like donkeys, goats, rabbits, etc.

There is one scenery that actually blew me away. It is the one of the Siberian ibex. When you enter this, it is almost like you are watching a national geographics documentary on a very wide screen. Very nicely done!

A true family park, kids had a fantastic day. Lots of play opportunities, and I loved the way some of the enclosures were set up, you could get close to the animals.

Surprisingly nice zoo
Jan 2020 • Family
Really nice zoo. We visited in the winter, it was quite cold, the advantage being that the zoo was not crowded. Very nice touch that you can buy some animal food at te entrance and feed certain animals. Explanations ob signs are available both in German and Dutch. Children’s play areas both inside and outside are fantastic for younger kids. We also liked that instead of many exotic animals the zoo features some animals which are more typical for the region and also includes an old-style farm with the corresponding farm animals.
Entrance fee was reasonable and the zoo turned out to be bigger than expected. We hope to be back when the temperatures outside are a little higher.

Great location for a family trip
Sep 2018 • Family
I was there for different reasons, few times as well with family, and the kids enjoy the atmosphere, the free animals, as well as the farm and barn. The kids playground is central, so adults can relay and eat (expensive and not so good quality) and the kids can continue to run around and have fun.

Autumn visit
Nov 2018
Friendly and scenic family zoo. Big enough for a real zoo experience, but not too overcrowded big.
The stories of the feeders are educational and so are the information signs about the flora and fauna of the zoo and it's surroundings.

Modest size Zoo, great in-&outdoor play-areas
Dec 2017 • Business
We went with our family (two kids, two adults) and grandma was also invited ;-) We frequently visit this Zoo. It's a modest sized Zoo, with great playing areas, both indoors and outdoors. It's modern, clean, continuously updated. The Cafetaria @ the largest playing area has a lot off medium prized junk food. You can get a 'Kids box' at a good prize, but thats appropiate for children until +/- 6 years. But the 'regular menus' are far too large for children.
Overall we had a great day, the feeding times are super to watch (plan your route according to these feedings, see photo).

Surprisingly good for a small town
Aug 2018
I didn’t have big expectations for this zoo as it’s a 50K population town and I thought it would be just a tiny little petting zoo. However I gotta say my 1 year old had a blast there and I also enjoyed it. We probably spent about 3 hours there. Animals can be seen really up close, barn animals may even be reached by hand. Lots of activities for kids, great playgrounds. I love that people bring their dogs there too! Oh and the restaurant on the premises (forgot the name but something with “de”) is pretty good, I mean it IS a restaurant, not just your usual zoo cafeteria

Great zoo for little kids
Apr 2018 • Family
Visited with the family, due to its shape it actually looks quite small when you go through the entrance, but with little kids in tow it's actually quite sizeable.

Once you get to the excellent restaurant area in the center and have managed to extract the kids from the little piglet play area you can enjoy some nice beverages and cake, then find out you're only half way there..

Not many large animals, and the some of the enclosures seem a bit small, but looks like there's major efforts going on to expand and improve.

All in all, great day out with little kids

Great afternoon with the kids
Dec 2017
We visited this zoo on a sunny but cold afternoon with the kids. This is a versatile zoo with lots of different kinds of mammals, some of which we have not seen before at zoos. We especially loved the feeding sessions which were accompanied by explanations about the animals (German only). The zoo also offers a large playground for the kids. All in all - recommended for a family visit.
