The Rainforest In Randers.
Here you can visit a man made rainforest, actually they have 3 of them. (Africa, Asia and South America) all 3 of them created inside domes.
There are 250 animals and 450 different plants here and it is quite an experience to be walking inside the domes. See the small monkeys jump from tree to tree and even feed them with melons if you are around at feeding time.
Most of the animals are free to range so it is quite similar to walking around in a real rainforest with temperatures at 28-30 degrees and a humidity at about 100%.
