Artis in the evening
Letting Amsterdam’s party animals in, ZOOmeravonden
welcomes guests to explore the Artis Royal Zoo
during the summer evenings until sunset. Some of the animals will be shaking off the last bit of energy before bed, while others will still be wide-eyed and of course those nocturnal animals
are just waking up. So come get up close and personal with the furry and feathered kind. Zookeepers and animal carers are on hand throughout the zoo to share the secrets of the creatures.
Live music and activities
If the choir of lion roars and bird chirps aren’t enough, adding to the entertainment are well-known Dutch musicians
and students from Amsterdam’s music academy taking to the bandstand to serenade the audience. Guests can also take part in workshops
, guided tours
for children. Dinner is served with picnics and barbecued delicacies available to eat on the lawn.
Stay in the know
The name ZOOmeravonden
is a play on words with Zoo and Zomer, the Dutch for summer, while ‘avonden’ means evenings. The Artis Royal Zoo is just east of the city’s centre. For more information visit the Artis Royal Zoo website
