Guided tours

During the Summer Nights, you can join different types of guided tours.

Themed guided tours

Various ARTIS experts take you through the park. For example, walk with one of the ARTIS gardeners and discover and taste the garden as a source of food. Be inspired by the ARTIS zookeepers about the role zoos play in restoring nature reserves worldwide. Or discover sexual diversity in the animal kingdom during Pride Week tours.

Evening guided tours

As dusk sets in, the ARTIS tour guide will tell you more about the night rituals of animals and plants. After all, like us, they live according to a biological rhythm. Which flowers come to life at night? Which animals make a sleeping nest every night? And did you know that even trees appear to 'sleep'? Wander along through twilight ARTIS Park.
