The trip to the Minizoo was interesting, the staff was friendly. It was possible to hold the snakes if you wanted to. But one thing bothered me very much; it was common sense that the living conditions for the large turtle were not very good....More

If you like to see many kinds of snakes, turtles and lizards, this zoo is surely worth a visit. The place is small and quite cosy, and the personnel is willing to tell you about the animals. Seven euros for adults, three for small children.
