“Nice city zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

This is a pretty nice zoo, right in the middle of the city, next to the central station. That makes it easily accessible. Negative point is that the zoo is quite expensive for a one-time visitor. With an annual subscription the price is reasonable, but as a one-time visitor with 2 children, expect to fork out close to 100 EUR! That keeps me away. Luckily I won a free entrance.

“Quiet place in centre of Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

As a ticket holder since many years, I like to pass some time at the Zoo when doing my shopping in Antwerp. It is a small Zoo, compared to the larger Zoo Planckendael in Hofstade (Mechelen), but it is always very relaxing to walk in the flowered garden and watch the animals. Do not forget your camera or sketchbook !
