    Die Gehege sehen deutlich artgerechter aus als in anderen Zoos, es gibt sehr wenige Zäune und Gitter weshalb man richtig nah an den Tieren ist. Planetarium kann man mit Kindern gut besuchen.

    I'm not a fan of animals in cages, yet how Artis runs the place (minimum animals, large habitats) is great. Plus: they don't try to be an attraction park. And who doesn't love "Artis de Partis"!

    A great zoo with much to see. Even though it is not too big, take good shoes and some patience.

    Зоопарк очень красивый по своей территории, зелень, цветы, клумбы с тюльпанами, лавочки везде, водопад,ну и конечно сами звери и птицы. Вход 20€, это стоит того!

    Really nice place. Online tickets are a bit cheaper and you don't need to stay in line. You can buy a map in the gift shop right at the entrance.
