There is no greater place to visit for families when in southern Norway. The park is well situated just outside Kristiansand city. The park had plenty of activities to do, waterpark, animals, a pirate town and so on. The kids will love it, so will...More

The park is as exiting as it's always been, so it must be improving (as I am getting older). This year I noticed that it has been a low maintenance budget, especially in the water park.

Kristiansand Zoo is more than a regular zoo: There's an amusement park and a water fun park, as well. Great care is taken to make sure that the animals have plenty of space, and that's good for the animals. Sometimes it´s not so good for...More

This is a park where you need more than one day to get around. The zoo part is really great, with a lot of exotic animals- especially impressed with the giraffes- which came close enough to touch. Impressive. Riding "Tømmerrenna" is a must do thing...More

Such a great place - sure, you could call it a zoo, but it's so much more. My family has a yearly pass, but this year we went four times in July alone; so much to see, so much to do. Go there at least...More

Would recomend at least two days for the dyreparken experience. Something for everyone. Preferebly go outside of summerseason, but nice whenever. The food is not the best and overpriced, but the rest is super.

The park is big enough to take 2-3 days to view - end to end. We spent 2 days and didn't see everything - relaxed and casual stroll. But before we get into that, the parking. When we attended, there were hundreds of cars. It...More

A nice place for young kids, and for grown-ups. There was a long queue to park, especially long from Kristiansand (1 hour at 10:30) and not too long from Oslo. When parked, everything is nice in the aquapark. Dyreparken is a bit more crowded, but...More

Its an impressive theme park especially by norwegian standards, but the commercial pressure is so overwhelming that at times the fun is completely ruined by having to say NO to children that wants stuff from the souvenir shops that are absolutely everywhere. No place to...More

Hi The main taxi stand and busterminal is about 10 minuts from, cruise port, so that should be a breeze. A taxi would probably cost around 250 NOK. It´s about 15 minutes with taxi, depending on the traffic. You can also... More
