Artis in Amsterdam


Artis in Amsterdam: for a fun day

28 January 2016

Young or old? doesn’t matter: Artis is always a good idea

You might not expect it but in the middle of the city centre of Amsterdam you’ll find Natura Artis Magistra! It’s a park full of nature and animals, a lot of animals. Basically just a zoo in the middle of the city centre! Nothing is more fun then watching the monkeys and penguins on your day off, right? And the reason that you have to visit Artis now: this week a gorilla has been born!

Besides all the animals that you can admire there’s much more to do! In summertime they organise ZOOmeravonden. That means you can have a pick-nick in the park at night while you listen to life music. In the zoo! But even when it’s cold there’s are a lot of fun things to do. Next to Artis you’ll find Micropia. Here you can see all the little insects that are normally invisible for the human eye, exciting!

Is it your dream to become a zoo keeper? You can! You can join a zoo keeper for the day and learn all about the business. Tip: when you go to Artis make sure to check the daily schedule. All activities for the day are presented here, handy!
