Antwerp Zoo

Right behind the corner of the Leopold Antwerp hotel, outside the city walls in the mid-19th century, is the Antwerp Zoo, next to the central station.

The zoo houses more than 6000 animals of 750 species. Just recently we all welcomed baby elephant; Kai Mook.These were very exciting times for all of Antwerp!

The Antwerp Zoo have new modern attractions to go with its old-fashioned charm. Freezeland, a habitat for sea otters and penguins, has joined the Nocturama (for the creatures of the night), a planetarium, a winter garden and an aquarium. It’s sure worthwhile a visit!

The passage of time and the extensive landscaping of the grounds have turned Antwerp Zoo into a green oasis in the very centre of the modern city. The scientific side of zoo operation has not been neglected and the Royal Zoological Society has, like many other zoo administrations, embarked on breeding programmes to sustain populations of endangered species.
