Visit ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo

Stroll among the shady trees, admire the diversity of plants and animals, travel to the stars, enjoy our heritage. Visit ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo and experience nature right in the city centre.

In ARTIS nature, culture and heritage come together. Every tree, every creature, every building, microbe, and planet has its own story. ARTIS has been telling these stories since 1838, and each day they are born anew. Experience it for yourself. Be amazed by the many species living side by side in the Forest House and Bird House. Discover the tiniest organisms at Micropia, the world's only microbe museum. Watch the giraffes, zebras, ostriches and springboks intermingling on the Savannah. Feel the fluttering of countless wings in the Butterfly Pavilion. Admire the tropical fish swimming in the vast Aquarium. Stroll through the historical city park with its centuries-old trees and wealth of plants. Experience nature and discover its significance for our civilisation – because a better understanding of nature fosters greater respect for all life around us.
