  • Nice zoo situated in a walking distance from the city centre of Amsterdam. Quite big area to discover. A lot of different animals and plants also.

  • Huge, wonderful escape from the city. Perfect for families. Must see in Amsterdam. If you are ready for lots of walking you will definitely enjoy it. Most areas are prepared for stroller walks. There's a few cafes and restaurants within the zoo and some of them are suitable for babies, equipped with baby chairs and changing tables. We loved it there and will be back again.
  • It's good but lacking in some regards. There's a lot of interesting animals to be seen and it has a butterfly area also. Some animals might be MIA during some periods of the day which is a shame, just like any other zoo. It's good a good amount of public toilets and water taps, as well as benches for resting. Enjoy some of my favorite and most photogenic animals from our visit.
