Part zoo and part amusement park, Dyreparken represents one of Norway's most popular attractions and will entertain both children and adults alike. View over 140 native Scandinavian and exotic species, such as tigers, lions, giraffes, lynx, and apes. Stop by the sea lion pool to watch its residents interact and play. Head over to the amusement park area and take a ride on the log run, the bob run, the carousel, or Norway's longest slide. There is also a waterpark with attractions suitable for the whole family. Check the website for show times of the kid's show with Captain Sabertooth, a visitor favorite! Use our Kristiansand sightseeing planning tool to add Dyreparken and other attractions to your Kristiansand vacation plans.

Very unhappy about Badelandet visit! The park charge full price, but only 1/3 of the park is available. No slides for children below 120. Showers and toilets disgustingly messy. Common changing...

For the price we thought the standards would be better. Our view was people smoking outside, and the noise from the kitchen and reception was unbearable. Loud banging and dinging late at night. Is it weird to assume children are trying to sleep here? Needs better soundproofing. However the staff is amazing and helpful.
Perfect situated bordering the Zoo. The theme is animals, but still has the expected standard of a 4× hotell. Few TV channels(but chromecast), and no tub in the bathrooms (kids tend to need a bath after the zoo, so a bit strange). All in all a nice and convenient hotell. Free parking. Breakfast not included.
