Artis blooming

Artis plans to celebrate its 175th anniversary by making the zoo bloom. Some 17,500 flower bulbs were planted to make sure the entire zoo will be bursting with colour throughout the year. Memories of the old zoo have been brought together to create a historic itinerary throughout the grounds. There will also be special activities, including lectures and interesting group packages.

Festivities at Artis

Artis is in a central location in the city and sometimes refers to itself as the oldest city park in Amsterdam. 2013 is an exceptional year for the zoo. Although the hundreds of animals and plants will not notice much of it, it’s an excellent reason for you to visit this extraordinary zoo.
