The Antwerp Zoo is in the heart of Antwerp and is full of play structures. Perfect for younger kids!
There is a small indoor butterfly garden. Our kids loved them!
The aquarium is also worth checking out
There are various play structures around the zoo. This makes it great for little kids!
We also turned a few things into play structures ourselves 🙂
There are also fun and educative games for kids around the zoo
There is a restaurant with tables near the main playground and a café closer to the entrance
There is another restaurant that looks like a small castle. This is next to a beautiful garden
And of course there are several animals
Our most favorite one was this one chilling out, too cool!
