We have taken various measures to ensure that you can enjoy the animals in a natural environment safely and without worries. For example, you only have access with a valid entrance ticket and a time slot reservation. Keep in mind that you can only pay with pin in the entire zoo.

Book your tickets and timeslots

You can only visit Rotterdam Zoo with a timeslot reservation and a valid admission ticket or membership pass. Shortly it is possible to reserve a date and timeslot (entrance time) for a visit until 31 July. This is only possible via our website, not by telephone or e-mail.
