Great zoo with lots to do. 19.50 per person on the door so i would recommend buying tickets before hand. we walked there from central station and it took ages so I would get the tram if i went back, we got the tram on the way home and it was only 2.80 euros each. food at the zoo was reasonable and not overpriced.

You can't get much better in Amsterdam for a family friendly place which you can literally stay all day in! I recommend on a sunny day taking a picnic with you and really making use of the great green spaces they have! The variety of animals is great, the children's climbing area & slides are brilliant. The aquarium is outstanding and during the summer months the zoo is open until sunset! One tip I would give you is to take your own drinks as bottles of water & pop are expensive however ice creams and ice lollies are quite reasonable! Enjoy :)

we set aside a morning for a visit to the zoo since we had a 6 year old with us. it was a great decision and would recommend it for anyone...not just children. It is a hugh area and very well planned out. the exhibits were very well done. there is plenty of shade, flowers, playgrounds and gardens. If I ever go back to Holland, I will definitely go back there

This is a great attraction! It's a full day out, took us 6 hours to see everything! Recommended! It cost around 20 Euro to get in, and was worth every penny! Some of the animals were roaming freely, so it was great being able to interact with them! The butterfly house was amazing, as was Lizard house.

Fantastic day out, lots to see and you can get fantastic photographic opportunities here due to the lack of fencing. Really good selection of animals and all only a short tram ride away from Centraal station.
