The place is nicely done the prices of food and entrance are fare. Everything is made so small children can enjoy it. The animals have big space and look really well treated. Worth visiting!

The Kinderzoo is just down the road from where I live. I have been there many times with children that I look after. I also had one of my first dates with my present partner there! I can recommend it to young and old!
