Some interesting, modern approaches, like the "climbing" walks (tunnels and stairs through the animal pens) and night walk (indoor darkened areas with animals roaming freely!) but otherwise reminiscent of old-school - with animals in poor looking condition (camels with droopy humps, unhealthy looking primates) and narrow pens.

All kinds of animals, highlights were the Brown bears and getting up close to a sloth in the jungle room, food was good and plenty of amenities.... only negative is that it is a little pricey.

Had some time to spare whilst in Amersfoort so decided to visit this zoo to occupy my time. I have been to many zoo's in many countries and this one is up there with the best, my favourite being Sydney Zoo. The site is well laid out amongst a pine forest and the animal enclosures are spacious and in keeping... More

We had a slack day workwise so rented bikes from our hotel, cycled to the zoo, which was a great way to get there. Admission was 19.50 Euro per adult which seems good. Inside the zoo is well laid out, set in lovely scenery. We went midweek so was quiet, plenty of places to get a drink and watch the... More

Great experience to walk through the night life area where in a confined space, without a cage, you have the chance to see all kind of little apes and sloths very close-by. Also great how they designed the Giraffe area, you can look them in the eye!

I love going to a zoo! Each one brings something different. Amersfoort brings the animals quite close to you cause they use glass walls instead of water or metal cages, which allows you to realize just how big a tiger, bear, etc. is. But if you really want to be amazed by size, check out their dino-park. Lifesized statues of... More

It does not matter how old you are, it is always fun to visit zoo. There are not only animals (by the way there are a lot of them) in amersfoort zoo but you could find cognitive information to all of them.

Always a good choice, this Zoo operates independently (without subsidies). They always have lots of babies and feeding the birds and the fish in the pond is always good fun. Your dog is allowed to come too, on the lead and you will have to scoop poops.
