Very big zoo, i've never seen bigger zoo, so much animals, very spacious. We've been there for 4 hours, you need time in there, but definately worth it. Maybe ticket price is a little bit too high but you see that just once :)

Loved all of it. Great to see the large animals & the all the fish. Immaculate flower beds and lush lawns to admire whilst sitting down to take it all in. Pizza and drink fair value for money in the corner restaurant near the koalas.

Small zoo but beautifully organized and equipped. Not in the same league as the San Diego zoo but definitely worth the time when in Antwerp.

The zoo is quite easy to access using public transit and it is a beautiful park with great exhibits. It is a bit expensive since children are not free like they are at many other European zoos. Be sure to catch the sea lion show!

We visited the zoo with our grandchildren arriving by train in Antwerp Central station. We ordered combined train/zoo tickets via the NMBS website. The current station was built in the period 1895-1905 is well worth a visit in its own right The zoo is next to the station and is well laid out in parkland. The animals are kept in... More

We spent the morning at the Zoo. It's very compact but worth a visit. I think it's comparable in cost to UK zoo's. Look out for the ticket machine's to buy ticket just inside the entrance instead of standing in the queue for the booth to buy tickets.

Nice selection of animals , also keeps on investing in new environments for their animals and they try to keep an eye to the past as well .

We had a great day at Antwerp zoo, we followed the parking instructions on the zoo website which were very useful but we had to walk through a slightly dodgy area before getting to the zoo. The zoo is fab, it has all the animals that you expect to see at a zoo and more besides plus animals we had... More

Set in an attractive park there are numerous animals and an impressive aquarium and reptile house. This is not a large zoo and at € 45 per couple was not cheap but the layout and manner in which the animals were displayed made for an enjoyable experience. This is an old zoo in the process of being updated but this... More
