ARTIS Royal Zoo is the Netherlands’ oldest zoo and one of Amsterdam’s most popular tourist attractions. ARTIS was founded in 1838 and is a unique zoo with thousands of animals which also features a planetarium, a zoological museum, the world’s only microscopic life exhibit (entry to Micropia requires a separate ticket), and 27 monuments.

Here you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon away from the hustle and bustle of the lively city centre. Stroll through the magnificent gardens under the shade of the old trees and be amazed by a world full of exotic animal and plant life.

The Amsterdam Royal Zoo is most commonly known as ARTIS, which is part of the museum’s official name in Latin, Natura Artis Magistra. It is located in the east of the city, near the botanical gardens, the Dutch Resistance Museum and the National Maritime Museum.

The enchanting Amsterdam zoo is home to more than 550 different animal species and over 700 trees and plant types. Visit the Savanne, where giraffes live side by side with the zebras and kudus. Or spend your day in the company of sea lions, elephants, jaguars, or chimps and learn more about their natural habitats. ARTIS also boasts an impressive butterfly pavilion and Insectarium, which is climate-controlled to replicate their natural environment.

The 19th-century buildings include an exhibit where you can learn more about the city’s long history with water and canals.

Amsterdam’s Royal Zoo also has a planetarium, where you’ll be taken on an exciting journey into outer space to discover more about the stars and our galaxy. ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo is a unique and unforgettable experience that is sure to be cherished by children and adults alike!
