Fun zoo with themed areas in the city centre May 02, 2011
The name of this zoo actually changed to Dierenpark Emmen a while back, but that doesn't change anything about how good it is! It is a good place to visit with kids of all ages and apart from looking at animals there is plenty more to do.

The zoo is divided into two parts, the biggest situated in the city centre with most of the animals that you would normally find in a zoo, and in addition to that there is a beautiful covered butterfly enclosure where butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colours fly around free. Another indoor enclosure houses several species of fish, birds and monkeys. Sometimes the monkeys swing around your ears which can scare the... out of you!

The other part is smaller and houses the penguins and some species of fish and turtles. In addition to that there is also a large covered themed play area called Yucatan. Both parts can be visited on a combination ticket or you can visit the areas seperately.

The zoo organises workshops and other special events, for instance a workshop photography or a visit at night to the sleeping areas of the animals. More information can be found on the website.

In Emmen you'll find the zoo Noorderdierenpark Emmen. It's a great zoo and a funny detail is that the zoo is spread out over 2 locations. One location is situated in the middle of the citycentre. The other location can be reached by walking over a bridge that's above the city centre. My personal favourite thing inside the zoo is the indoor Tropical Butterfly Garden. There you will find beautiful colourfull plants and flowers and there are butterflies in the air everywhere just flying around the zoo guests. There are a lot of different kinds of butterflies, large ones, small ones, some with very bright colours, it's a very pretty sight. The animals are sorted by the different continents they come from. A normal ticket costs 17 euro's. There also an indoor playarea for children wich you also have to buy tickets for if you like to visit that. You can get a combi ticket for the park and the playarea but you can also buy seperate tickets.

Zoo where animals have space to live Mar 19, 2005
This zoo in the northern part of the Netherlands is welknown for it's space. The animals have enough (in a Zoo it's never enough but this Zoo is relatively OK)to live and walk around.

I find it highly recommendable if ever you are in that part of the country.
