About the Guldborgsund Zoo & Botanical Garden

Guldborgsund Zoo is an zoological garden in wich we're planning a botanical garden. We're still in the primary stage of this development. We're in the process of making a masterplan, but we also have made the first steps into making visible changes in the garden, that a botanical garden is about to emerge in the near future.
