Get up close and personal with over 750 animals at , Scandinavia's largest zoo. Featuring a dolphin show and a dolphinarium complete with roller coasters, the zoo opened in 1969 and houses the only bottle-nosed dolphins in Sweden. A trip on the safari gondola sets you soaring high above the valley of African lions, while you'll find yourself under raptors at the birds of prey show. The zoo houses all kinds of creatures, from the Savannah to the Scandinavian woods, including llamas, brown bears, gorillas, tigers, elephants, and moose. There are several restaurants on site and you can rent a wagon to get around. Since many of the exhibits are completely outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.

Excellently made and preserved. Animals kept in well conditions and look healthy and interested to outer world. Only negative point is the fact of closed restaurants on Friday, even though the park is only open Friday to Sunday (at current period). When paying the full amount, one can expect the full availability of offered services!
We enjoyed this very large, clean, well structured and maintained zoo. The beautiful nature and modern enclosure design makes the exhibits nice for animals and visitors. Animal had a lot of space. Information for visitors was good as well as gastronomic facilities - the food was extraordinarily good and tasty. Especially the gondola tour was something completely new for us. We were very happy and satisfied after our day there.
