The animals seemed in good health and they were nearly all out and visible for us to see. But compared to more modern zoo they have less free space to roam about, their enclosures seemed a lot smaller than other zoos I've visited. The zoo...More

Went here for the opening of the night zoo when they had a silent party (with headphones). The zoo is amazing...we saw the cougar, lions, penguins, monkeys, giraffes and many varieties of birds. Definitely worth a visit

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

Hello Alexandra, Well unfortunately there are no panda there and we are not allowed to touch the animals. But there are a huge variety of animals. The zoo is very nice.
