Diergaarde Blijdorp

Rotterdam Zoo is situated in the district of Blijdorp in Rotterdam Noord. Stroll across the African Savannah and stand face-to-face with the giraffes. Visit Bokito the gorilla and his family. Walk on the seabed in the indoor Oceanarium and meet stingrays and sharks. Stroll through the largest butterfly paradise of Europe: Amazonica, filled with fragrant flowers, thousands of South American butterflies, anacondas and piranhas that love to bite.

It is possible to book tours and packages. During a tour on foot let an expert guide show you places that visitors don’t usually see. One of the options is Blijdorp by Night: an after-hours tour of the zoo at dusk which includes a dinner buffet.

Rotterdam Zoo is accessible by both public transport and car. The zoo is a 15-minute walk from Rotterdam Central Station. Still prefer to come by car? Take the A20 exit 'Blijdorp’.
