Featuring well maintained garden areas, tidy animal enclosures. Animals kept in good conditions. A compact zoo making most of restricted space. An enjoyable couple of hours spent here.

The Zoo is interesting for any age : from 1 to 101 years . the Zoo has undergone a sensational makeover since my last visit . You now have a sense of space and animal welfare . The animal shelters are now largely adapted and modernized. Highlights include the impressive aquariums, the home of the little monkeys , the butterfly... More

On this moment there is a huge construction going on but there is enough space to look to the nice spots for the animals. Animals look healthy and have a lot of space. Its nice to visit with children. It is an oase in the centre of the city. I always enjoy strolling in the zoo.

I took 3 kids (9,9&7) here for an afternoon. The garden setting is lovely, there is quite a range of animals but they are housed in rather basic enclosures. It's easy to get around, not too crowded and very central.

The Antwerp Zoo is a nice place to visit,.... when there is no construction going on. But now it gives you the impression that the whole place is a yard and the animals are hidden somewhere in a corner. Definitely not worth the money at this moment. The free coffee offered is a ridiculous compensation. A perfect example of how... More

I went to Antwerp zoo with my husband and mother in law whilst staying in the city for a few days. We had a lovely afternoon enjoying the enclosures and the scenic gardens with the amazing background of the central station. It was easy to buy tickets, there are ticket machines that take credit/debit cards or kiosks inside the zoo.... More

The zoo would have received 5* but there were large scale building and restoration going on during the visit so numerous sites were unfortunately closed. The zoo was well laid out, it was interactive and had a clean and inviting food area. There were things to walk up, down, climb, loop round and go into to see the large variety... More

A good choice if you have half a day to kill and don't mind walking. Highlights were the dolphins, seals, sea lions, gorillas and the aquarium.

Located very easily reachable next to the Central Station, the historic setting in the centre of Antwerp makes a visit unique. The historic buildings have been well preserved, and are integrated to serve the needs of animals and visitors according to modern standards. Several indoor exhibits can provide shelter against Belgian weather.
