It's a great place to explore with kids or without. We spent about 4 hours there and it was just great. We wandered around the polders trying to spot different birds and then went to see the zoo. It's not very big but, anyway, very...More

I went to Het Zwin last weekend (16 August 2013) but it is still closed and under renovation. It used to be a nice place but indeed needed some renovation. Unfortunately it is still closed. However, the neighbourhood is lovely for biking so that's what...More

This place never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful in every season. Absolutely a must do once a year. The museum is a great place for children and adults to learn in a playful and interactive way about fauna and flora in t Zwin.

Good natural park with good signing about distance and the animals you see, we do advise a electric bike as the wind can be strong

We visited on a hot summer day, mainly attracted by the barefoot path. It’s a shame they deliberately made all public parking in the area impossible so you’re stuffed with either a poor public transport connection or an expensive private parking in site. All fancy...More

Every visitor turns into a bird and explores its habitat and habits. Quite some interactive features. Very nice to experience as a family. Outside nice walkabouts with many birds as well as bird watching shelters with guides to assist.

Without any doubt, nature is the big winner with the recent evolutions and extension of the Zwin at Knokke. On the other side, an entrance fee of €12 pp for a provincial domain is not too cheap and a parking spot "in the middle of...More

Great little place. It was recommended and nearly missed because of the changing weather. Interesting use of technology to get young (and old ) ones interested in bird life. Great flight simulator, egg identification etc. Outside is long enough to keep the kids going but...More

The park is beautiful, a great place for some nice walks. Different routes are available. Entry is quite expensive and so is the cafetaria. I personally do not like the building they put up there, something more natural would have been better instead of black...More
