Zoo, Berlage and cosy coffee
Artis is the oldest zoo in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1838. It also has an aquarium, a planetarium, a geological museum, and a zoological museum.
In front of the zoo is the Dutch Resistance museum. Here you can learn everything about the occupation by Nazi Germany during World War II.
Walk to the street Henri Polaklaan to see De Burcht, a beauiful building designed by famous architect Berlage.
For an authentic Dutch dinner you can go to Koffiehuis van de Volksbond, also close to Artis. This laid-back place once started as a charitable coffee house for dockers. Or have a drink in one of the cosy cafés.
