Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry, Thoiry

2.5
#1 of 22 in Outdoors in Yvelines
Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry blends a castle, zoo, and botanical garden. The castle itself was originally designed as a solar calendar, with the garden walkways as the hands. Built according to the golden ratio, the castle's design is in harmony with the solar cycles. Outside, you can explore the gardens, which have been fashioned by famous landscapers for centuries, marking the styles of their respective eras. Beech, oak, hornbeam, and chestnut trees all shade the property. The safari park, which must be visited from inside your vehicle, houses about 800 free-roaming exotic animals. Parts of the zoo and botanical gardens have been made accessible by foot. There’s a Komodo dragon exhibit and a lion exhibit, where you can walk among the felines inside a glass tunnel. The Mysterious Island offers an adventure trail on suspended bridges.

  • First visit. We are out thrilled. Animals really have room to evolve, you can see loan, nature is omnipresent. Nice Park. The safari is also very good, attention however to the cars that branch off no matter how. And people do not respect the rules. Some cuddle animals and give food to attract... We will be back!

  • We wanted to spend a day with our children to the Park. Unfortunately that was closed unlike the information present on the internet. Coming from Reims after so 2 h 30 drive we find door close but a Manager (hair d a hat) of the Park promises us and our 3 children 5 places by way of compensation... and c is finally 2 adults tickets we receive... THANK YOU PARK!
