Bamboo Room

Give a presentation surrounded by 248 bamboo stems, a veritable wood. The wallpaper was inspired by the bamboo in ARTIS Royal Zoo. The Bamboo Room is suitable for small-scale meetings, dinners or receptions and can be used in combination with other rooms on the ground floor. We can also help you organise your meeting or party to make use of the whole of the North Pavilion.



Founders Room

This was the office of the founder of ARTIS, G.F. Westerman. It has always been used for organising, reflecting and planning for the future. Hold a meeting in the peaceful atmosphere of the Founders Room and take some time to reflect in Artisplein, strolling along the Dutch Polder Landscape. Enjoy lunch in the quaint conservatory with a view out towards the spoonbills.

Blue Star Room

Enter the North Pavilion and walk up the historic staircase. Look through the windows and admire ARTIS Royal Zoo beneath. You stand between heaven and earth in this room. Stars sparkle on the walls and in the chandelier above, while the carpet beneath your feet depicts a world full of animals and plants.
