The Amersfoort Zoo is one of the most child frendly Zoo in The Netherlands. For Children it is possible to climb (safely) through the animal cages, making a visit a great adventure!
Furthermore there is a real Dinosaurus Wood where you can experience the Dinosaurus time.

It's definetly not the largest zoo in the Netherlands, but it is a very nice one. It's nice to relax there and walk around to see all the animals. There are some rare topics like the white tigers and Geoffroy's cats! Staff is really nice. Next to that I can recommend taking some time to sit down and meditate in the Japanese Garden. They do have special, season related events, which is nice too.

All kinds of animals. A dino forest. Enough playgrounds for the children. Good for many happy days out!

Netherlands has many great zoos, but I like Amersfoort because of its Baboon colony and the tigers in their glass cage!

This zoo doesn't have the feel of one of the big zoos like Berlin, Amsterdam or London, however I like this feel, especially in a park which in actual fact is a large size. The whole park feels very inviting, its easy to walk around the atmosphere is really relaxed.

There is a lot to see in this zoo no matter what you came over here for! For people such as ourselves who are real zoo enthusiasts there is a great variety of animals from Chimps and Gibbons to Elephants and Giraffes or Snakes and Lizards through to Bears and White Tigers. However there is more to this park than just animals, which makes for an informative trip out for any age or a fun filled day for children.

There are some interactive children's activities such as electric go karts, but even though we didn't have kids with us we really enjoyed the Dinosaur area. A lot of thought has gone in to this area but it is only a shame that none of the dinosaurs were animatronic.

Some of the enclosures have different perspectives to see the animals from, with the most enjoyable being the Bear enclosure which has some hanging bridges to let you see them from above!
