Being the oldest zoo in The Netherlands, ARTIS has plenty of tales to tell: about its aquariums, its caretakers, famous people who have visited and the legacy of the place itself. ARTIS is more than just a zoo. It’s an urban park, surrounded by historical buildings, containing century-old trees and even a great many exotic flowers and plants in its arboreta, brought over in colonial times. ARTIS even has its own academy. Visit ARTIS and you’ll see just why Holland’s oldest zoo is as popular as it’s ever been for all ages!
A visit to the Artis is great in combination with the 100 Highlights Canal Cruise, making for a terrific day out in Amsterdam!
