We came here from America because my family ancestors were Herbersteins so we had to see this amazing castle. The tour was very informative and we were blown away at how beautiful the castle and the surrounding gardens were. It is a very small, quaint...More

It is the first ZOO without animals which I see. Maybe they are very good in hiding or I have realy bad luck, but I see a few animals from long distance and that is all. I would like ZOOs, but this one is worst...More

Surprisingly well stocked zoo in the middle of nowhere. Can be expensive to enter so make sure you get a "Genusscard". Had food, ice cream and beverages inside. Well worth a visit if you stay in the area.

I went there with my husband and my five-year-old daughter. There is a huge variety of animals that are kept well and free in their environment. The family ticket is worthy the visit, as it is well maintained and available even to disabled people. Really...More

This park is very large and you should expect to cover a large area by walking, and not only flat path ways, they are several steep tracks and uneven paths. So great exercise as well as a tiring, but fun day!

It's a huge zoo with a nice park, with a castle to visit too (a small excursion there possible, but not with a pram - too many stairs, damn you no name middle age architect!!), you can go for a bit hiking behind the castle...More

Not the largest number of animals, however it does give all of them a huge amount of space to roam around in. Does mean that there are quite some distances to cover between animals and to find them hiding!

The park is very beautiful, immersed in the nature. The animals have huge spaces, although some of them are very difficult to be seen (especially the Puma). Probably the best attraction are the monkeys and the buffalos. It's worth to pay the (quite expensive) ticket...More
