Lille Zoo

The best-known area of the Parc de la Citadelle, the zoo welcomes more than 800 000 visitors a year. The transformation work carried out over the past three years now means you can discover more than 400 animals (70 species) in a completely renovated area. The installation of an immersive  bird enclosure and the renovation of the Exotic Journey space offer special showcases to show off the zoo’s animals. Not to mention an expanding programme of events every year from   meeting the keepers and birthdays at the zoo to behind-the-scenes tours...
