Zoo becomes Christmas Park!

During winter time, the zoo transforms into a Christmas-themed park known as the "Julparken". Children can enjoy making Christmas crafts in the Craft Cottage and, of course, meet Santa in his own cabin. A good tip is to bring your wish list, as Santa receives it personally. Just don't forget to be a good child throughout the year first! Take advantage of the opportunity to take a walk around the park, which is illuminated with festive lights, and see the animals in their winter surroundings. You can also visit Café Björnberget for some mulled wine or other tasty treats.
