ARTIS Royal Zoo

ARTIS Royal Zoo

Complete your trip to Amsterdam by visiting the ARTIS Royal Zoo. ARTIS is the oldest zoo in the Netherlands and is located right in the heart of Amsterdam. Leave the busy city behind and visit the Amsterdam zoo for a relaxing day. More than 550 animal species have found a home at the zoo. From the Asian elephant and the red vari to the gorilla and the chimpanzee. A visit to the Amsterdam zoo is an excellent choice if you have children. Every day there are activities that will teach children (and you as well) more about animals in a fun way. Discover the difference between a sea lion and a seal, listen to the caretaker who will tell you all about the black and the spotted jaguar and walk among the red ruffed lemur.

More than just a zoo

ARTIS is not just a zoo. With 27 monumental buildings, the zoo is full of history and a unique cultural heritage. It also contains a planetarium, an aquarium, and a botanical garden. In the planetarium, you can discover the world like never before. A live show on the dome of the planetarium will take you on a journey to space like a real astronaut or it recreates Darwin’s trip to the Galapagos Islands. The aquarium of Artis Royal Zoo is also worth a visit. Fun fact: the aquarium contains 1,3 million liters of water. It is the home of tropical fish like the piranha and the rainbowfish, but also to seahorses, endangered coral species and sharks.
