Every time we are in Rostock we visit this place. Many animals, opportunity to feed lamas and goats. Time run so fast when we are there. Such a big monkey place. We love it.

If you have been to the London Zoo, this one is much bigger and the animals can actually be seen in every enclosure. A great way to spend 3-4 hours with any aged family.
