August 23, 2017 By Marta Parlatore 0 Comments

The Amsterdam Mamas Recommend awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services in the city for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Event For Families In Amsterdam:

ARTIS - Amsterdam Royal Zoo 

Located in the heart of the city, ARTIS is the oldest zoo in the Netherlands and one of the oldest in mainland Europe. Since 1838, ARTIS has been bringing together nature, culture, and heritage with its monumental buildings, the fine range of wildlife, and even a surprising art collection on display in the Aquarium complex, among coral reefs, swimming sharks, and an Amsterdam canal seen from a fish's point of view. A planetarium, an arboretum, and kids' petting zoo complete the list of what ARTIS has to offer for a family day out without leaving the centre of Amsterdam.
