Holland’s oldest zoo is also one of Amsterdam’s leading attractions. The zoo is home to around 900 species of animals from all corners of the globe. Artis is not just the zoo but also a geological museum, plant house, aquarium and planetarium. Antelope to Zebras and everything in between!
The zoo has a 19th century atmosphere with winding paths, majestic trees and fascinating sculptures. But of course the real stars are the animals. See wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, gorillas and lemurs, as well as insects, bugs, tropical fish and butterflies.
There’s plenty for everyone onboard our cruise ferries from the cinema showing blockbuster films, to a teen friendly games room and a play area with a ball pool and cartoons for little ones. For adults there are several bars(where children are also very welcome), and even a casino.
What's more children can join the free Pirate's Club for fun, treasure hunts and entertainment with our children's entertainer and a chance to meet our mascot Jack the Pirate!
