This zoo is one of the best I have been too! All enclosures are very good sizes, some look small then as you walk along it you realise the animals area actually goes across 2/3 enclosures for them to freely roam. Lots of animals to see and different ones from your average zoo/wildlife park. We took 3 hours to go... More

Very impressed with the overall layout of this place - much consideration and thought has been given towards the welfare of the animals. Took about 4 Hours but if you have more time there is a cafe located within with a spectacular view! Easy access by Tram as well.

Ok its not cheap, but still worth it... easily done as its in the middle if the city, if its not a rainy day you can spend a whole afternoon wondering around. Had noticed some improvements in the upkeep of the animals...Trams 9 or 10 or 14 stops nearby.

As a lover of animals, I will always go crazy for a well kept zoo. Animals all had great space and the area is beautiful!

A great zoo has to have many components. But the top issue is for healthy, humanely treated animals in an environment where they are comfortable. This zoo has done a commendable job with this essential task. One of the best zoos I've ever visited. Lovingly cared for. Typical Dutch attention to detail. On a holiday to London and Amsterdam.

As had free entry to the zoo with our Iamsterdam we decided to pop in after our visit to the Resistance Museum. The zoo was quite well kept and the animals seemd to be adequately housed although there wasn't a large range of animals to view. There is ongoing renovation to make the animal enclosures less cagelike. We did a... More

On a weekend visit to Amsterdam, we spent one day at the zoo. it was lovely, there was a nice place to sit and eat lunch. There were lots of animals to see as well as nice gardens. It is all flat so anyone with mobility difficulties would be able to spend there day there and manage. We stayed in... More

Wonderful Zoo, big enough to spend an entire day inside. The entrance fee is a bit steep - I think it would help a lot to reduce that a bit.
