This zoo is ideally placed for the centre of town being adjacent to the central railway station. The animals all seemed well cared for with as much space as you can expect from a zoo.

It's cool that there is a zoo in Antwerpen, an alternative attraction to do when you want to do a different stuff when you're in Antwerp other than eating fries and walking around the city. Not only for tourists but also good option for locals.

Well what can I say this Zoo has so many different animals. I thought it was a little pricey before I went in. But once inside I can see why, with the upkeep and variety of different species it was well worth it! If you like animals and you're in Antwerp why not give the Zoo a visit.

One of the oldest zoos in Europe, which is worth a visit. A large number of animals, convenient location routes at the zoo, it allows you to be without noticing of the past tense.

Thoroughly enjoyed visit to this city centre zoo. Lots to see. We were in for about 5 hours. Used the cafeteria and the food was surprisingly very good. Usually zoos are not renown fro good food for humans but Antwerp was an exception. Zoo was in very good condition and clean. Staff were very helpful so well done to all... More

Absolutely brilliant zoo with so many kinds of animals, including the very rare Okapi. Elephants, giraffes, panthers, and a huge aquarium mean you can easily spend a few hours in the zoo and be thoroughly entertained. Right by the station too, so easy transport.
