A beautiful zoo!! Although I think that the entrance fee was a little bit expensive! 8 euros per person. You need enough time to see everything in the zoo..

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 💛
