Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry blends a castle, zoo, and botanical garden. The castle itself was originally designed as a solar calendar, with the garden walkways as the hands. Built according to the golden ratio, the castle's design is in harmony with the solar cycles. Outside, you can explore the gardens, which have been fashioned by famous landscapers for centuries, marking the styles of their respective eras. Beech, oak, hornbeam, and chestnut trees all shade the property. The safari park, which must be visited from inside your vehicle, houses about 800 free-roaming exotic animals. Parts of the zoo and botanical gardens have been made accessible by foot. There’s a Komodo dragon exhibit and a lion exhibit, where you can walk among the felines inside a glass tunnel. The Mysterious Island offers an adventure trail on suspended bridges.

Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry Reviews
Autrefois j'ai aimée y aller, cette année c'était "bizarre", comme l'impression qu'on fait vite le tour, les animaux peu propre et pour certains on dirait qu'il sont malheureux... Sinon accueil sympa ... more »Once I loved going there, this year it was "weird", like the impression that we make the tour quickly, the animals clean and for some it looks like they are unhappy... Otherwise friendly staff
