It is really cool. They have a huge collection of animals in lots of smaller 'neighbourhoods' for many categories and areas.

Regenstein African Journey shows everything from meerkats to zebras and giraffes.

My favorite litle spot is the Swan Pond, there aren't a lot of birds here, but it so cosy and so nice... The Zoo is huge and there are a lot of things to do, you can even tuch many of them.

Price:
Free, but have to pay for the parking.

Opening Hours:
Weekdays 10 AM to 5 PM
Weekends 10AM to 5:30 PM
