Overview

Highlights

  • See hundreds of different species including lions, zebras and giraffes, and dine to the soothing sounds of birdsong on the restaurant's terrace
  • Spot 27 different monuments including several historical buildings, and get starry-eyed in the planetarium, which has different shows each day
  • Stop in and see aquatic animals at the Artis Aquarium and get a glimpse of what you might find in Amsterdam's canals

Description

The ARTIS Zoo contains a huge amount of different species including penguins, wolves, giraffes, and more. There's also an impressive art collection, an aquarium, a zoological library, a planetarium, and 27 monuments found throughout the area.

Elephants, penguins, giraffes, jaguars – all the usual suspects and more can be found at the Netherlands's oldest zoo. Walk among the beautiful buildings and soak up the atmosphere and animal sightings. Built in 1838, the ARTIS campus features several historic buildings. Their significance is sadly lost on most of the residents.

The whole experience is wonderfully wild, yet refined. There's art in its aquarium (alongside the sea creatures), an old-timey zoological library just behind the anteaters, and an excellent restaurant with a terrace overlooking the aviary. Yet another crowd pleaser is the Butterfly Garden, where you can see thousands of fluttering wings.

That was really exciting, elephants, lions, gorrilaz and many kinds of birds, reptiles, fish. Was really nice to see feeding the animals. Also some place to rest and eat something good. Didnt see open cages with monkeys but with birds and kangaroos. Hope to come back here again!
