Natura Artis Magistra

Meetingroom: Koningszaal Entrance: Plantage Middenlaan 41a, Amsterdam

Artis Royal Zoo was the first zoo to be established in the Netherlands, and it’s located right in the centre of Amsterdam. It’s a place where nature and cultural heritage come together; a place where history has been created since 1838 and where new stories are created daily. Artis Royal Zoo is also home to the biggest Planetarium in the Netherlands and a wealth of well-preserved 19th century architecture. Beyond the zoo's walls, the Plantage district is one of the leafiest
and pretty neighbourhoods in all of Amsterdam.
