  • If it's a cold day you have the chance to see the animals in their internal enclosures with gives you the opportunity to have an Hippo or a Rhino very closely! Overall animals habitats are well designed giving them good space to live! Compared to other zoos in Europe this is a bargain! Need about three hours to walk trough it.
  • Terrible place. Couldn't see many animals. The whole Zoo facility and spaces for the animals were not maintained well. Really felt sorry for the animals there. It is worth going there once. But not recommended to go more than twice.
  • I have been to many Zoos all around the world, and this Zoo is by far one of the worst ones I have been too. The spaces for the animals are way too small, especially considering their normal habitat. The Zoo overall looks unkept. I hope, for the animals sake, that there are plans in the future to make the enclosures bigger allowing more room, especially for the bigger animals, and the ones that move about a lot. I get the impression that the animals are not happy.
  • I enjoyed my visit to the FF zoo. Well located in the city center, I'll recommend this if you want to spend your time outside the daily routine things.
  • Spent the day here and it was quite nice for the first zoo that I've been too ever. Weather was perfect. It seemed like it was sleepy day for all the animals though! Great time there.
