Overview

On March 31, 1913, Faisanterie Buitenlust, the forerunner of the current modern animal park Burgers' Zoo, opens its doors to the public for the first time. Since its foundation by Johan Burgers, the first owner and the one who named the animal park in Arnhem, the park has always remained a real family business. Already from its inception the zoo caused a sensation due to its daring new organisation, which naturally is in the way the animals' accommodations are shaped as well as in the way the experiences for the visitors are created. Burgers' Zoo has a rich history, which has shaped the zoo into the way it is today, and as you can still find it now in the wooded area just north of Arnhem.

Fantastic! Great selection of animals and perfect viewing points for visitors. The Ocean section is better than most aquariums you find scattered around. Highly recommended

Near the entrance. Go ahead past the penguins slightly to the left (not to the right from the entrance, which leads to the children's restaurant and playgrounds) and they're on your left.
