I don't normally like zoos but this place had large enclosures and they used the space well. The animals all seemed happy and well cared for. Lots of information about each animal. Good eating facilities and great value for money.

Wuppertal has a uique transport mean, and I'm always astonished to hear most people outside of Germany have never heard of it. The best way to discover it is a day-trip from busy and thrilling Düsseldorf or Köln, and the price of a dayticket from...More
