“Ideal place to walk and enjoy”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very good zoological gardens in the middle of a city and next to the main trainstation. It is very pleasant to spend some hours just by strolling and looking at the animals, who are very well taken care of. A beautiful Egyptian temple is housing the elephants !

“Superb creation of nature!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is one of the best zoos you'll find in Europe: next to the train station in the heart of the city so its easily accesible, beautiful aquarium, and a beautiful park and restaurant where you can relax with your family or your better half on a weekend.

There are many variaties of animals at view. And there are lots of things to do for children as well: there's a playground and a restaurant next to all the animals of course!

“Excellent compact zoo in the heart of the city”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We had heard a lot of good things about the Antwerp zoo so we decided to visit it on a sunny day. It was a great getaway- its location right next to the train station makes it super convenient and once inside- there was lots of lawns and green patches.

Also a number of cafes, fries and snack joints to keep you going. And the animals were in great shape and well kept. We saw 2 young elephants playing with each other and that was great. Also enjoyed seeing the giraffes and their quarters.

We also loved the bears at the end of the zoo.
Overall its a very well maintained zoo and worth a visit.
