We visited the zoo on a sunny, not too hot day. The park is very well maintained, they have a large variety of species, one could easily spend an entire afternoon there...

Firstly we struggled to get in .....had purchased our tickets via Expedia but the reception wanted us to download onto a PDF file and email them (having used the phone for other tickets incl. entry onto plane to Barcelona !) anyway, eventually got in but sadly found the zoo to be disappointing. We have been to many zoo's as a family, London, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Bristol, and I have to say this was the worst. Some animal areas did not seem clean, there were a lot of lone animals, the majority of refreshment stalls were closed, didn't seem to be many staff around, lack of animal shows etc .... on a plus, was happy to see Hyenas as I don't recall seeing them before but other than that, just so disappointing. I appreciate its a 'city' zoo but I struggled to see the 'good' they are doing.
Only spent half a day there.

Spent almost 4 hours here one wet Friday afternoon. Booked online and got discount (45 euro for 2 adults and 1 child) There are plenty of animals to see. There are parts of the paths closed to have work done and some of the animals couldn't be seen, but I think this was down to the rain.
Cafes were expensive (15 euro for 2 small chips, a large coke and a small fruit salad) but they usually are in attractions like this. Gift shop was also expensive.
Over all a great way to spend a few hours and would visit again.

It was a disappointment. The cages were small and dirty. They didn't tell us at the entrance that the zoo is under costruction and we will not see many animals...

Not the best of the zoos but good to take your kids for the day. It’s accessible, clean and fun for the family.
