We visited in January and many of the different places was closed because of making ready for the new secon. The highlights was the tigers, and it was very interesting to see this amazing animal. I will try it in sommertime it must be much better.

Lovely place to show your kids and teach them about nature, wildlife and humans as part of our ecosystem. Animals are well nourished and treated respectfully.

Taxi costs more than 200 Kr. You can also take a city bus (31, 32, 51, 52, 52S, 59S, 141, 141E, 141N,... More

I visited this zoo with my boyfriend during a Saturday afternoon. Even though some animals were not out (probably because of the weather), we had fun. Organized, cleaned and with several facilities for children and grow-up!
