The zoo houses all kinds of creatures, from the Savannah to the Scandinavian woods, including llamas, brown bears, gorillas, tigers, elephants, and moose. There are several restaurants on site and you can rent a wagon to get around. Since many of the exhibits are completely outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.

  • A clear, and very well groomed park with really child-friendly appliances, and there at a nicely groomed animal park with all amenities

  • I loved this zoo/amusement park. The enclosures are spacious, the animals have treated it well, the shows are friendly. How to miss WildFire, one of the best roller coasters in Europe? On a cliff-side, this wooden monster will satisfy your need for sensations. The Safari gondola is also a big plus. Be careful, however, not to be fooled in the parking lot, we pay it to the timer and not to the exit of the parking lot ...

  • Excellently made and preserved. Animals kept in well conditions and look healthy and interested to outer world. Only negative point is the fact of closed restaurants on Friday, even though the park is only open Friday to Sunday (at current period). When paying the full amount, one can expect the full availability of offered services!
  • We enjoyed this very large, clean, well structured and maintained zoo. The beautiful nature and modern enclosure design makes the exhibits nice for animals and visitors. Animal had a lot of space. Information for visitors was good as well as gastronomic facilities - the food was extraordinarily good and tasty. Especially the gondola tour was something completely new for us. We were very happy and satisfied after our day there.
