We visited the zoo on a tuesday, and the queue took about 5 mins. There were much to see, and the animals looked healthy. It was clean and well taken care of. Aquarium was also nice (no fee). Would visit again, with or without children!

We took our 5 and 6 year old. Simply amazing. The exhibits are large and the animals look happy and healthy. Many are left to roam free. The zoo itself is well manicured and a beautiful park. Our kids loved the playground near the coffeeshop....More

I love this ZOO. You can go there by boat and spend the whole afternoon walking in the park. I love the greenhouse, it is full of butterfly's. The pit with the bats and other night animals is fantastic.

The zoo is way bigger than I expected it to be being that its right in the middle of the city. You could literally spend all day there.

well thought out zoo, good sized enclosures and well designed for animal enjoyment,aquarium and reptile house both worth a visit, although watch out on cold days the reptile house is very hot and humid , so specs will steam up a bit!!

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
