This is one of Europe's outstanding zoos, with more than 1,500 animals, including Asian elephants, black rhinos, seals, and big cats. One of the more unusual attractions is a huge dome stocked with flora and small free-range fauna you might encounter in a jungle in Madagascar, including frogs, lemurs, and the endangered Bernier's teal. Set in a tree-filled park, the zoo is just east of the city center and easily reached by Trams 5 and 6.

Our kids (ages 6-11) loved this zoo! Hilly but manageable. Fun wooden and rope net playground. The large indoor "rainforest" is magnificent with huge bats swooping all around.
