ARTIS is the oldest zoo of the Netherlands and home to 750 species of animals. It is an amazing experience and you can easily spend hours in there. What some people might find interesting, is that a new western lowland baby gorilla was born in there in October 2018. Still, it actually is more than a zoo, ARTIS is also home to the biggest Planetarium in the Netherlands and you will also find the ARTIS-micropia museum and The Plantage district. Highly recommended, especially during spring and summer, when all the plants at the area are in their best looks.

This Is Holland

Incredible 5D experience of flying above the Netherlands. The experience gives you insights about the Netherlands in the past and today and ends with the flight experience, where you see the Netherlands from a birds perspective and feel like you really are flying. You smell the tulips, feel the wind, and get some feeling of the ocean. This Is Holland is not allowed for a child younger than 4-year-old and you have to be 102 cm to be able to join the flight.
