  • Beautiful hutches, friendly staff, well maintained. next year we take another subscription! I think this might be the cutest Zoo of Netherlands.

  • Because the US last year as well, we are this year one more time. It remains a very nice park, you can follow the route by the numbers. It is quite passable for wheelchairs only the old city is what hobbeliger. The supervisor is free and the disabled parking is available on site as well. Also the large bird cage at the entrance to the park was again very nice, it took a while but again came the birds on your hand.

  • Amersfoort Zoo is quite a big zoo with quite some nice worked out visits to the animals. Great bear experience, wonderful setup of the tigers area where it feels you can touch the tigers with the glas...  more »

  • Nice zoo with a big playground for the kids. Some of the cages are a bit small but overall not too bad. Only downside is the service at the restaurants. You're paying too much for average stuff (even with the discount you get with a subscription). We once had to wait 30 minutes to get our drinks while it wasn't busy at all.
  • Lovely zoo with all the animals you like to see in a proper zoo. Not as big as some zoos, but that's a plus in my opinion. We went with our boys of 4 and 2 years old and they both loved it. I guess that's the best way to rate a zoo! 😁 It wasn't busy at all on a Wednesday in May and we found a day was just long enough to go around the whole place. Maybe it's not as entertaining for older kids, but for the little ones it's great. There are lots of little tunnels and pathways and slides ect. around to keep them excited.
  • A good place to visit with kids and gave a great family time. But in the restaurant you need to add at least one hour for waiting time. Other than that it is a good place.
  • Great good size zoo, Nice variety of animale and many tracks for kids to explore. Pretty decent restaurants and very Nice playgrounds. Situated in the woods, plenty of sun and shade. If you plan to go there often, buy the yearaccesscard, a great deal
  • Great animals, handy signs so you do not miss a thing and always an angle to find for your photos and watching. I would recommend going for sure.
