Artis Royal Zoo information
Laid out with delightful ponds, statues, and leafy, winding pathways, mainland Europe's oldest zoo has an alphabet soup of wildlife: alligators, birds, chimps and so on up to zebras. Highlights include convincing themed habitats like African savannah and tropical rainforest, and the aquarium complex featuring coral reefs, shark tanks and an Amsterdam canal displayed from a fish's point of view, plus a planetarium and kids' petting zoo.
