Blijdorp is one of the most beautiful zoos in Europe, with plenty to see and do. Blijdorp is home to giraffes, gorillas and polar bears and more, all of which have their own unique living quarters. One of the highlights is the Oceanium, where you can literally walk among the fish. Blijdorp offers various journeys of discovery, activities for all age groups, guided tours and Blijdorp Happenings. One such special Happening is the ‘Blijdorp by Night’ evening, which includes a guided tour that enables you to see the animals at dusk. The zoo also has various restaurants and snack kiosks. Blijdorp is also a really exciting place to celebrate your birthday!
