It was a visit with mixed feelings when we left. We spent 4 hours at the Zoo in cold, windy, wet weather but that didn’t bother us. Having been to many zoos over the years I found it overpriced. The animal enclosures are very small...More

The Zoo is amazing! Compared to other zoos I've been to you get closer to animals then you expect. Keepers were around and gave information on animals. Could easily spend a whole day there as it's so interesting and so much to see.

We spent a very wet morning at the zoo. Having said that, there were lots of very good exhibits inside and we found the aquarium and small animal house very impressive.

This is a pretty well done city zoo. It might seem to be on the small side, but the sections are so well separated by vegetation that it appears large. It's an easy walk but take the map since there are almost no straight paths...More

A deceivingly large zoo! The ticket price was reasonable for the amount of animals to see! Spent around 4 hours here but could’ve spent longer! Only down point was not enough drinks/snack counters around the park!

We truly enjoyed our visit to the ARTIS zoo. It is very easy to access via the tram. It was a bit pricier than I first expected but once we were visiting the wonderful settings it was well worth the price. The animals all appeared...More

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

The animals all seemed to have indoor and outdoor areas so I guess you would see them well at any time

since I'm not a smoker I have no idea. Normally there are specific areas where you can smoke and I think that is also in this case

Try the plantage it is very beautiful and you can eat in the greenery overlooking the zoo. It is not actually in the zoo itself but right outside the main entrance.
