At the ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo, nature, culture, and heritage come together. Every tree, creature, building, microbe, and planet has its own story.

ARTIS has been telling these stories since 1838, and each day they are born anew. Experience it all for yourself with your skip-the-line admission ticket.

Marvel at the wonders of space inside the ARTIS Planetarium. Watch the giraffes, zebras, ostriches, and springboks intermingling on the Savannah. Feel the fluttering of countless wings in the Butterfly Pavilion. Admire the tropical fish swimming in the vast Aquarium.

Stroll through the historical city park with its centuries-old trees and wealth of plants. Delight your taste buds at de Plantage, a café-restaurant. Relax in a chair near the fountain on Artisplein.

Experience nature and discover its significance for civilization, because a better understanding of nature fosters greater respect for all the life around you.

Really good day out, enjoyed every bit of it, especially the planetarium which was in Dutch but we still got a lot out of it. The zoo was big enough, and the elephants had a very large enclosure. The what our was great and we enjoyed seeing all of the children (possibly school children) using oil pastels do draw the reptiles

Love how the zoo is laid out with open cages and beautiful greenery. there's enough space for us humans and the animals and it doesn't feel as if they are trapped in a small enclosures. it feels more like we are walking around their home rather then them on display for us.
