Skip the queue when you buy your tickets online!

Come 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. Admire the gardens with their flowering bulbs in spring and study their rich vegetation in summer and autumn.

Artis Royal Zoo

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. Or visit an exhibition in the Zoological Museum. Walk among butterflies and experience lemurs up close. Watch children and adults sketching from life. Take your (grand)children to play in one of the playgrounds while you relax under the trees or on a terrace enjoying lunch or a good cup of coffee. Artis Royal Zoo is a truly remarkable place where nature meets culture and where knowledge merges with pleasure.
