This zoo is brilliant, it has really good sized enclosures for the animals with tons of enrichment, they are also expanding some. The buildings on site are beautiful, especially the aquarium building and it's really a whole day out. Lovely variety of animals, and brilliant...More

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
