Went on a cold January morning and was surprised how big the site was. The price is reasonable €30 each to see it all or €15 for aquarium or for the animals so you can take your pick. The animals had big enclosures and you could view them on multiple levels. Food could be purchased at the shop if you... More

we took the full tour of the zoo in a cold morning, some of the animals were inside or not visible, but the overall experience was great.

We travelled on a very cold day. We were lucky enough to see the Elephants inside and outside. Also the Tigers were Majestic and as always the Orangatans superb and funny. This Zoo has one of the best Antarctic exhibitions I have seen at a Zoo

The aquarium is what really amazed me. The design and attention to detail would put Disney to shame. The coral reef and... More
