At first sight you would think that you would power through the zoo quite quickly as after you enter, you reach the back wall very early, but what it lacks in depth, it more than makes up for it in length. Situated exactly behind the central station, it's a quick and easy way to enjoy animals from around the world... More

(Only for another week!) http://www.zooantwerpen.be/nl/china-light Great place to take small children too. We amazed at the chicks hatching, elephants having a brawl, giraffes sheltering from the wind while the huge, beautifully... More

One of the nicest zoos in Europe. It has a very nice collection of animals, combined with the authentic buildings and infrastructure of the early 1900's. Don't miss this opportunity when you stay in Antwerp.

When we visit cities, we visit zoos and this one is delightful in every way. Perhaps we caught it on an exceptional day but the animals were all very active and visible and moving about. We thought it would be small because it's one of the oldest zoos anywhere but it seemed big and just the right amount of things... More

It's big enough to spend your afternoon to walk around among animals. There are many kinds of animals. just bit pity that not many birds as it used to. It's nice place for family and couples as well.
