We enjoyed our visit, as there are many animals and as the zoo is one of the oldest in Europe, the architecture is beautiful. However, I was slightly concerned about the welfare of some of the animals, especially the seals, as their enclosures seemed to...More

While not a fan of zoos in terms of captures animals. This zoo (as far as zoos go) was fantastic. The exhibits are well presented and there is an abundance of animals. We also had lunch there and it was so inexpensive.

Very well looked after. The bird house and tropical house are amazing. The big feature are the jaguars although you need to be patient to see any movement!

The buildings are maintained and boast historic value with beautiful attention to old detail. Price was reasonable, staff...More

It was a great experience, it was different from other zoos I’ve been before. There are special areas that the animals are free to wonder which creates a nice vibe. Better than see animals in cages.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
