Great place for big and small. Easy to use map for navigation. Great improvements over the years (bigger/better)but still remains and place of nostalgia from my childhood. €8 entry per person is value for money...staff was also very friendly. Danke 💛

It was very quiet. A lot of animals were not there or were inside. A good zoo for little children. Free parking space

A broad range of animals in a very clean, well laid out zoo. Very little English so more a look at rather than learn about zoo. Again not much open during the winter season.
