The Amersfoort Zoo has some of the largest groups of animal families that I have ever seen, including dozens of various kinds of primates. This almost always makes for happier and more entertaining animals, and this zoo is no exception. It does mean the zoo has fewer kinds of species, but it's almost always a good trade-off. Some of the... More

It had been nearly 3 years since my last visit but since I am now in Amersfoort permanently I got a year pass and now go very often. I love walking through the zoo, the staff are always friendly. The variety of restaurants is great, and they all have very good food. The zoo is always improving, with new stuff... More

I live in Utrecht, so it's just a short ride to Amersfoort. Great little zoo (not very big), with a wide range of animals and well taken care for both animals as well as surroundings. The white tigers are just awesome and there is a wide range of felines. Enough options to sit down and relax, watch the animals, have... More

This is one of the better zoos in Holland. Very nice for little children. Even for the adults. Very educating. Several places where the children can play.

At my visist i was surprized how nice and kid friendly this zoo is. The animals seem to be in natural cages mostly, and you can get really close. For kids there are all kind of ways to get close to the animals. Next to extremely safe playgrounds and easy overview. Plenty of space to walk. It's just a great... More

Get some bird food from the caretakers and feed these beautiful birds and let them sit on your shoulder or hand! Walk on the same level with the heads of the giraffes, see the rhinos run around, enjoy the view of the tigers behind glass (very thick, but incredibly clear!) and relax in the vast playing area where the children...

Zoo is great with most animals in more ore less natural surroundings. Nice different places to have lunch/diner or just a snack- something to drink. For children under 12-14 a great place.
