View animal habitats as 19th-century travelers did at Antwerp Zoo (Dierentuin), the oldest zoo in the country. Established in 1843, the zoo originally reflected director Jacques Kets' vision to promote the zoological and botanical sciences. Over the years the attraction added primates, African species, and a sampling of animals from almost every environment. In the 20th century, the zoo was updated with larger habitats that mimic the animal's home. Hippos, penguins, sea lions, and elephants all have public feeding times; pick up a printed schedule of feedings and caretaker chats from the ticket kiosk. To keep you energized, there are two sit-down restaurants and picnic areas where you can enjoy your own lunch. Purchase tickets onsite or online. Visit the zoo's website for seasonal ticket promotions. Free wheelchairs and special tours for visitors with decreased mobility are available upon request.
