“good city zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

very easy to find the zoo. It was 19 Euros each to get in. The zoo seems a bit on the small end of the scale when looking at the zoo map. There was some areas of the zoo where work was being done but this was minor. The walk ways through the monkey and bird enclosure was great for taking photos. Most enclosures were very good in a way that lets the public get close to the animals. The lion enclosure was very good for this. I feel the best enclosure was the wolf's. The wolfs put on a show for us. You could easily spend 3-4 hours here just watching the animals. Another small feature that worked well for DSLR users was the heaters that allowed you to demist your glasses or lenses, before taking photos inside the humid climate.

Overall a great day out when in Amsterdam.

“Highly recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Visited the zoo with my other half for valentines day, were a bit skeptical at first but once we got inside we were very surprised at the amount of large animals they had- big range of large cats although a lot were sheltering inside due to it being so cold in feb. Absolutely loved the aquarium, some of the biggest fish I've ever seen! Amazing!! Highly recommend this zoo well worth €20

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Really wonderful canteen style restaurant at the back near the giraffes- the zoo is a lovely place to spend the morning and lunchtime!
A little pricey but well worth it. Don't buy a map, good sign posts, you won't need one

“A lovely day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

A great day out, we spent a full day here and had a lovely time. A great collection of animals, including an aquarium, bug house and reptile house. Had lunch in the restaurant, which was a bit pricey but that is to be expected in large attractions like this.
