Artis / Amsterdam Zoo

Go and stroll in nature’s oasis in the midst of the bustling city. See more than 200 species of trees and more than 900 species of animals.

Artis boasts some of the most beautiful 19th century architecture in Amsterdam, of which the Aquarium is a fine example. Marvel at the stories nature has to tell you. See giraffes strolling with wildebeest, zebras, springbok and oryx, look under the water of an Amsterdam Canal an study planets and stars in the Planetarium. Walk among butterflies and experience lemurs up close. Artis Royal Zoo is a truly remarkable place where nature meets culture and where knowledge merges with pleasure.

In June, July and August you have also the Artis ZOOmeravonden (Summer Evenings). Visitors learn what the animals get up to after hours by staying open until sunset on Saturday.
