“Nice zoo in the city center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Nice zoo with a variety of animals in the city center. The place is colourful with a lot of flowers. I totally agree with another reviewer saying that "the zoo itself is not the biggest or most impressive but incredibly beautiful."
The zoo was a little bit pricey (about 20€/person) but the ticket also included the entrance to the aquarium.

“Beautiful zoo right in the centre of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We visited the zoo in order to kill a few hours on our last day in Amsterdam and were sorry we had to leave. It was right in the centre of the city, easy to walk to and find and not too pricey. The zoo itself is not the biggest or most impressive but incredibly beautiful, with lovely old buildings and a rich history, being one of the oldest zoos in Europe. We particularly loved the large conservatory type buildings filled with tropical plants, monkeys and birds that you are free to walk through. The aquarium is also well worth the visit and is included in the price. All in all a wonderful day out and most certainly one to visit to get away from the busy city.

“A nice day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We went on a summer Saturday evening for a few hours. Beautiful gardens, places to have picnics, live music & friendly staff. You can get up close to most of the animals. A pleasant way to fill in a few hours

“Perfect!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Go there in the early morning to the opening time. You will like it without no doubts! Big, atmospheric, with great number of animals and birds, it will be good variant not only for those who are with children, but for those who and alone and adult.
Tasty food in the cafe opposite open-air cage with giraffes and zebras.
