“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

My whole family loves zoo and were not disappointed here. There was a locker area to walk thro at the start which has small monkeys lizards and bats running free. It also had a second part with birds but I am scared of birds so did not go in. Only thing I would find I would mark it down on is lion enclosure seemed to small. There is a young cub there at the moment who I could of watched for hours full of mischief . I got on free using IAnsterdam card it is normaly a 20 euro entry. Also the cafe food was nice and cooked fresh in front of you. Would recommend to go if your an animal lover.

“Zoo-riffic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our family and a friend went to this wonderful zoo back in August of 2012. I recently made a scrapbook of our trip and was reminded just how wonderful this park is. It is very open with lots of park style grassy areas where you can sit under the shade trees. Beautiful facility with European stye and charm. Take time to go, you won't be disappointed.

“Not Just for the Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Grabbed a No.9 tram across from our hotel about 9.30 am and headed for the Artis Zoo. What a place! Beautiful layout and gardens loaded with tulips and Spring flowers of all kinds. Passed through the huge iron gates to the ticket counter (39 euro for two adults).
Some exhibits are behind the times, still having lot's of concrete enclosures for some of the large cats. The is a multi level aquarium, a planatarium, buterfly house and free flight avairy. It was quite an experience to walk among reptiles and birds in the avairy.
there are also Lemure's roaming free but insight of their keeper,
A reat place to spend the day.

“beautiful & well-organized zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

It was a great pleasure to visit the Zoo even in cold January (minus 5 degrees) so I expect it would be even more in warm spring & summer days. Animals are amazing, except mammals there are great collections of birds, fish and insects Tickets are little bit expensive - 19.5 EUR for the adult but it worth every cent! I enjoyed my every minute there and will definitely come back there in the summer.
