Welgelegen Residence

Stroll under the trees, enjoy the heritage, travel to the stars and spend the night in a characteristic 18th century house in the heart of Amsterdam. Falling asleep to the sound of howling wolves and waking to singing gibbons is an unforgettable experience. It can be yours in Welgelegen Residence on the edge of ARTIS.

Wake up to singing gibbons



Welgelegen Residence is an authentic house made partly out of wood, with a central hallway, several upstairs rooms, a large kitchen-breakfast room and a number of bedrooms. The back garden is part of the ARTIS Park. Over the years, various ARTIS employees have lived here, including the well-known A.F.J. Portielje. The result is a house positively full of character, right in the middle of the city. It is in the heart of Amsterdam, yet surrounded by nature. Experience ARTIS during the day and at night.


Welgelegen residence is perfect for overnight stays, meetings and more. The stairs in the hallway lead to all of the rooms, including the meeting rooms and the bedrooms. The building does not have a lift.
