Experience the Summer at ARTIS

ARTIS is is excited, excited for the summer. From Friday 9 July to Sunday 5 September, there are various activities for the whole family during the day. When night falls and the sky turns red, ARTIS offers an evening program filled with love on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Sweltering Summer Nights and Jazz at the Plantage

Experience the park on these Sweltering Summer Nights outside of regular opening hours and walk the Multicolored Love Route, an audio tour about sexual diversity in nature. You can follow the audio walk by downloading the free app and scanning a QR code at the various locations in ARTIS. An English version is also available. Some of the spicy stories are more suitable for listeners over 16.

On all evenings musical sounds resound through the park thanks to the Conservatory of Amsterdam. On the Friday evenings they will perform an intimate and acoustic jazz concert during the jazz festival Jazz Talents at the Plantage. And there is always room in the warm grass for a summer evening picnic. 

A day full of family fun

Travelling without lugging suitcases, long queues and coronastress? Then take your children on a world tour of ARTIS. During a scavenger hunt, they'll get to know animals, plants and microbes from all continents. In addition to everything ARTIS usually has to offer, this summer's daytime program has many more extras for young and old. Children learn to move like an animal during children's yoga, there are puppet shows for the youngest visitors and budding artists can express their creativity in a drawing workshop in the elephant enclosure.
