I hadn't been to a zoo for years, but my adult daughter and I decided to visit as it was so close to our hotel. Glad we did, as we had such a lovely morning there! We went in as soon as it opened and, although the weather was a bit cloudy, it was such fun walking around and looking... More

My friend and I were staying near Grand Place, we got a train that took approx 40 minutes to Antwerp station which was opposite the zoo. Lots of animals, decent size zoo and good location!

I was surprised at how expensive our tickets were when I bought them at the kiosk outside the zoo! However, I was even more surprised at how beautiful and enjoyable this zoo was the moment we stepped inside. A photographer handed my daughter a bird and took her picture as we walked in. I'm usually annoyed with these gimmicks, but... More

We have been to many zoos around the world, and this one is easily the zoo that we spent the most time in. The layout is easy to navigate, and easily accessible by pram everywhere so no-one missed out when looking after the youngest. The animals all seemed healthy and active. Food and drink is not extortionately priced. It is... More

This is a very pretty zoo with a good variety of animals in very nice surroundings the only draw back is some of the enclosures are quiet small for the animals especially as they had five gorillas in a small enclosure .

I was blown away within seconds of walking in to Antwerp Zoo as to how beautiful the scenery is and how well kept it was. Perfect lawns, trees in full foliage, tulips and blossoms everywhere. The animals were all very active and looked happy, two of the little leopards were playing together which was cute. The bagel I bought from... More

Small city zoo. Not too big a zoo, with nice gardens and classical buildings. Good variety of animals.

They have a pretty nice selection of animals but it was a little painful to see the sadness in the gorila's eyes...
