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

Antwerp is a strange place, all entertainment facilities are off on Sundays except the Zoo. We spent whole day and two batteries of my camera! The monkies were the best!

We visited with our 3 year old son and while we enjoyed our day, I couldn't help but notice how small and tired some of the animal enclosures are, the tigers are a prime example. There is no place for them to "hide" from the visitors and more importantly, there's no greenery. To put an animal that lives in a... More

Dragged my very reluctant boyfriend here during our visit to Antwerp in April. We were at a bit of a loose end as Antwerp was our stop-over and this was literally the only reason I managed to get him to go as he doesn't usually like to indulge my crazy-animal-lady tendencies! Pretty much as soon as we entered the zoo... More

This is a really pretty park and, for the most part, a well planned zoo. The older style of enclosure is being phased out and they are making many changes. Had a very pleasant afternoon.

I've not been to a zoo for years, so as this one was within a short walk of our hotel in the city it was not to be missed. The entrance to the zoo is immediately next door to the front entrance to Antwerp's central railway station, so it's not hard to find. The entrance fee for adults was EUR... More

It took me 3h to visit everything in the zoo while taking my time. The art nouveau architecture and the magnificent gardens were really breathtaking. I saw many animals that I had never seen before. Over all I had a great time! Tips : At 10AM the aquarium lights up from natural light Don't miss the butterfly house! Go on... More
