Beautiful well-maintained zoo where the animals are well cared for and there is a great emphasis on education and conservation.

This zoo continues innovates itself and you will notice that the animals are on place number one.! That is how it should be of course, but that does not mean the visitors are missing anything. One of the best zoos in the world not because of its number of different animals but because of the way you will enjoy seeing them in a natural as possible environment ; remember this zoo is in the middle of the second city of the Netherlands.
Enjoy the beautiful Gorilla family and the tigers, amongst many others !

This is hands down the best zoo I've ever been. The zoo is constantly improving itself with new habitats for the animals. One of the nicest things is the large aquarium.

A big, beautiful and welcoming zoo which I have visited two times now and am happy to visit again. The huge range of animals is amazing and they live in very good, spacious enclosures. The viewing opportunities for visitors are also very good and include a lot of chances to view the animals indoors as well. There are plenty of food and drink as well as restroom facilities located everywhere for the visitors. The zoo it self is huge and you might not even be able to see it all in one day.

On a good, sunny day, this zoo will give you unique experiences unlike any other. I HIGHLY recommend it!

visited the Rotterdam "Diergaarde Blijdorp" Zoo. Nice place to visit and see the wonderfull creatures of our world. Also during wintermonths very attractive. After I've seen several zoölogical gardens and aquaria I would say in western Europ only Boulogne's Naussicaa beats the "oceanium" of the Rotterdam zoo. Things that could be improved: the plan (the map) and the way the map is visualized makes orientation very difficult. Myself beïng an architect and always buzy with plans and drawings even had problems to orientate and find my way. Temporary route-signs to point out midwinterzoo were not complete an consequent.
