  • This smartphone ticket gets you right into one of Europe's best zoos!
  • Visit Oceanium, where you'll meet many marine and coastal animals, such as sharks, turtles, sea otters, puffins and penguins
  • Rotterdam Zoo is dedicated to conservation, so your visit here supports wild populations of elephants, red pandas, Indian rhinos, and polar bears

One of Europe’s most beautiful zoos, Diergaarde Blijdorp Rotterdam Zoo is a naturalistic oasis where you can see creatures from around the world. Red pandas, tigers, elephants, sea lions, silverback gorillas and more call this place home. This conservation-minded zoo will have you feeling like you've undertaken an expedition - and you won't even need to leave Rotterdam!

From the butterfly-filled Amazonica to the polar bears of the Ice Cave, you'll be amazed by the animal encounters on offer here. You can even get 'underwater' in the fully covered Oceanium, where you'll watch sharks flit around splashing turtles.

The playful gorilla family call African Gorilla Island home, and the Savanna gets you eye-to-eye with giraffes. And there's so much more to explore! This sprawling zoo is full of wildlife secrets and natural surprises, so grab the family and make a day of it!

And it's not just for show: Rotterdam Zoo also supports a number of conservation projects, and is one of the top ten zoos in the field of breeding programmes for endangered species.

Very large and spacious zoo and the same goes for the enclosures. I was very impressed! I absolutely loved the tropical houses and the aquarium was fantastic! I had absolutely no problems! I just wishedi could have arrived early so that I would have been able to see every area of the zoo x

Everything was great and I had a lot of fun! The only thing that irritated me was a huge amount of people with screaming kids what made this lovely and calm afternoon in the world of animals a little bit tiring. Not that it depended on you or me, just saying :)
