ARTIS, experience it for yourself
Founded in 1838, Artis Royal Zoo is as enchanting today as it was almost two centuries ago. It is a true city zoo. Amsterdam's zoological garden is not only an oasis of calm in the middle of a fast-paced city, but also a haven for around 700 animal species and 200 tree species.
The best thing about a visit to the ARTIS Royal Zoo in Amsterdam is the escape from the hustle and bustle. A place where you can truly escape from nature, immerse yourself in the animal world and truly explore.
Marvel at the many species that live side by side in the forest house and the bird house. Take a trip through space in the planetarium. Experience penguins, wolves, giraffes and many other beautiful animals. Micropia is a unique museum, showing the invisible world of microorganisms. Feel the flutter of countless wings in the butterfly pavilion. Sounds exciting?
