Description

More than 550 different species of animals call the ARTIS Zoo home. Well, only the parrots can call it that, but they do all live here. You'll get the chance to visit the penguins, wolves, giraffes and more. There's also an impressive art collection, a zoological library, a planetarium and 27 historical buildings. If that wasn't enough, you can now get microscopic at Micropia and discover the secret lives of the planet's smallest creatures.

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 is made up of 27 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 mingle with thousands of fluttery friends.

Once you've seen all creatures great and small... it's time to go even smaller with an optional trip to Micropia. The 2016 Museum of the Year shines a tiny spotlight on the world of microbes and shows how these unsung heroes affect and influence our lives.

If the weather's nice, pack a picnic lunch and spread out a blanket - there are plenty of leafy green spaces around the zoo grounds to enjoy an al fresco meal.

It was absolutely unreal!
We thought it would of been a few hour job, to look around etc. Got there at 11, we left at 5! Had so much fun, it’s so nice to see every animal having fun! Unlike other zoo’s where they look very sad! We absolutely loved it, and highly recommend it. Also recommend booking online, because the ques can get pretty long!
Thank you for a good day!
