A trip to the petting zoo is always a good idea. Children can get to know sweet farm and pet animals here. From cows and sheep to guinea pigs and rabbits. There are different animals at each petting zoo.

De Dierenhof petting zoo

A short distance from our hotel, in Ridderkerk, is the petting zoo 'De Dierenhof'. Here people come into contact with nature and animals. This farm is run entirely by volunteers. These volunteers take care of chickens, goats, sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits and cats 7 days a week. Between 10:00 and 16:00 everyone is welcome to take a look at this small-scale petting zoo. Inside, a basket of greens can be picked up, which can be used to feed the goats and sheep outside. Something the kids are sure to enjoy! There are also coloring pages and games for the kids inside.

Recreational farm De Kleine Duiker

A little further away, in Barendrecht, you can visit petting farm 'De Kleine Duiker'. It is a recreational farm with a recreational, sporting, educational and social objective. At De Kleine Duiker you will get a good picture of traditional farm life, with respect for people, animals and nature. The farm is open daily from 08:00 to 17:00. Be sure to stop by!

De Kooi petting zoo

Also nearby is Children's Farm 'De Kooi' in Rotterdam-Zuid. Since 1970, De Kooi has been a place in Rotterdam - IJsselmonde where city dwellers come into contact with large and small farm animals.
