When you are lucky with weather, you can have really nice day. Seeing all sort of animals is of course exiting, and they have plenty, but there is more: Beautiful small parks for sitting down with a book or for picnic.Lot's of beautiful flowers and trees makes walks in Zoo very pleasant. Some really nice old buildings to see too.... More

Really well arranged, large and beautiful zoo! The best looking animals I've seen in a Zoo! They all have vast and nice environment, and are really playful and alive. It is really one of the best Zoos and is a must-see. (I have visited the New York Zoo, Berlin Zoo, London Zoo plus aquariums, so I am telling you it... More

This was one of the highlights of my one month vacation in Belgium. We were amazed when we realized how big it was and how fast time flew by. We spent a good 5 hours and it never got boring. Many different animals and species. Especially the butterfly garden was overwhelming and the aquarium inside was unbelievable. Also, location is... More

Well worth the 24 Euro entrance fee. Conveniently located next to the train station. Lots of different animals in well set out environments. Took us 3 hours to walk around.

This Zoo is located right in the city center next to the central station and close to the shopping street (meir). It has a lot of beautiful old buildings and is a nice 'getaway' from the city. This is what makes it so special, but then again the downside is that they have limited space. Although it is big enough,... More

You can easily combine a visit to the magnificent central station and the Antwerp zoo, because both attractions are right next to each other. I have visited the zoo many times and it has changed a lot compared to my childhood. The zoo is sitting right in the city center, so the neighbors can literally see the giraffes walking around...

As the person who don't like any type of zoos I must say that this one is just one of a kind! It was found in the 17th century! There are lots of pretty gardens and parks, comfortable relax corners, playground for the little ones. Just work of art in planning and architectural wise. You can rent a push chair... More

I have been to many zoos before and thought that the night time animal section was one of the best I have seen. There was work going on as they were building a new enclosure for the Giraffes and Zebras. The animals were only in 2's or 3's as the space is limited being in the city. Overall it was... More
