“The best zoo I had ever been”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

One of the best zoo I have visited till date. Variety of animals, birds and reptiles is huge. Need to spend 3-4 hrs to see in complete totality. The location is very near to Antwerp Central Station. Also there are good restaurants nearby. All in all very good experience

“A GREAT CITY ZOO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The fact that there is a zoo in the heart of the city on itself is spectecular already! Just seconds from Amtwerp Central station, in fact, right next to it on your right hand side! Very convenient, different, but very convenient, I must say :) The zoo has a variety of flora and fauna, ranging from ancient old trees to different species of birds, fish and plants. Don't expect to see cougars and elephants and whales and so on, though. The grounds are also very nice as is the landscaping, which are very well maintained. Perfect for little kids, but also perfect for us BIG kids ;) (Visited last in May 2012, NOT 2013!)

“Best!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

This zoo is just amazing. Your journey starts right from the entrance where you can find a huge hundred years tree. The variety of animals, especially African animals, could impress everyone.

“Always a winner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Taking kids to the zoo is always a winner. The Antwerp zoo is beautifully located next to the central station and at the end of a shopping street that puts the Champs élysées to shame.

One can discuss zoos and their ethics however that is not the purpose here. As zoos go this one is accessible, clean and it looks like the animals are well taken care of.

Certainly worth a visit.
