ARTIS Royal Zoo (most commonly known as ARTIS) is one of Amsterdam’s prime attractions. Since it’s located outside of the bustling city center, it provides the opportunity for a relaxing, day-long escape! Founded in 1838, the ARTIS Royal Zoo is the Netherlands’ oldest zoological exhibit, and what’s more, it goes above and beyond just being a zoo, as it also has an aquarium, a planetarium, and the world’s only microscopic life exhibit titled Micropia (admission to this exhibit is separate). In addition to housing some 700 different species of animals, the ARTIS Royal Zoo is also packed with 200 plant species, making it lushly green. Spend an afternoon in its vibrantly colored gardens and admire the height of its old trees. Just reserve your tickets online and explore the zoo’s many exciting sights!
It’s not every zoo that can boast its own aquarium! When you visit the ARTIS Royal Zoo, you can marvel at the diverse range of exotic marine species that call the Amsterdam Royal Zoo home. Stroll through the breathtaking butterfly pavilion or the carefully climate-controlled insectarium. Take a tour through the planetarium, learn about the solar system, and gaze into the deep reaches of space. Of course, don’t forget to say hello to the zoo’s traditional, iconic animals like orangutans, elephants, and giraffes! The Amsterdam Royal Zoo includes it all, making it one of the city’s foremost attractions.
The ARTIS Royal Zoo is a highlight of any traveler’s trip. Combing a zoo, aquarium, insectarium, microscopic life exhibit, and planetarium into one, it makes for the perfect outing and offers a large number of options. With so much to do, and so many animal, plant, and insect species to see, the fast-track admission you get when you reserve with Lindbergh will save you the time spent waiting in lines! The ARTIS Royal Zoo preserves the wonders of the natural world in the environment of the big city. Support the ARTIS Royal Zoo and its caretakers when you buy your ticket today!
