Lumpe purchased of land and set up a private bird sanctuary that was known as Lumpepark.

  • The zoo is small. Safe and very steep. You can really get close to the animals. Petting zoo and pony rides. A train can take you up so that you can walk down (at a cost). Some of the enclosures are completely inadequate for the animals which is a point of concern.
  • The place would need quite a lot of improvements regarding fences, but it's location on a hill makes it quite unique.
  • I went there with my brother and sister, the loved it. The day we went there was hot and we all tired from going up there, to the end of the zoo. The territory of the zoo is huge and you can see all different animals. The place is worth to spend a day there.
  • Fun place, good and interactive staff
  • Pěkna zoo.
