  • See over 700 species of animals including lions, zebras, and giraffes and dine to the sounds of birdsong on the restaurant's terrace
  • Learn about the dark world of Amsterdam’s canals in the Aquarium Zone and admire the art collection
  • Walk through 27 historic, monumental buildings and get starry-eyed in the planetarium, which has different shows each day


More than 700 different species of animals call the ARTIS Zoo home. Well, none of them can actually talk, but they do live here. And on your visit 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 26 more historical buildings. It's a history-filled menagerie, in a quiet and quaint canal district - there's a little something for everyone at ARTIS.

Elephants, penguins, giraffes, alligators and more are onsite here at Europe's oldest zoo. Walk through the leafy environment, among the beautiful buildings and soak up the atmosphere and animal sightings. Built in 1838, ARTIS has 27 monumental, historic buildings as part of its campus. (This historic 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 – the only place you're likely to find a real life fluttering hairpiece, if one of the hundreds of butterflies lands on your head.

The zoo is easy to get to via tram number 9. The range of animals is good and the animal houses such as the bird house is amazing. you can get up close to the animals and its really good to see that they are trying to extend to give more space to the animals like the elephants. I spent a good 2/3 hours there.
