Stay warm during the winter at ARTIS


The Stay warm during the winter event in ARTIS has been extended until 6 March 2022. There are winter quests, winter stories and special guided tours. The park has a winter atmosphere, there is even a merry-go-round.

Treasure hunt, winter tour and merry-go-round
During the winter treasure hunt you will discover all the warm winter shelters and you will find out how a sea lion stays warm in cold water, and what kind of animal can survive in temperatures down to minus 196 degrees. In addition, you can also join the special winter tour of the park, and then warm up again with hot chocolate. There is also a beautiful merry-go-round in the park, almost as old as ARTIS itself. You can take a ride for €2.00.

Winter stargazing and icy tardigrades in Micropia
Are you curious if the universe looks different during the winter? Find out during one of the live performances at the Planetarium. View the Daily Agenda for current times and dates on which these performances take place.

Micropia free for kids
In Micropia it is nice and warm for humans, but many microbes do not need this to survive. In fact, a tardigrade can survive even in a temperature of -270 degrees Celsius. From now on, all children up to and including 12 years old can go to Micropia for free. Adults in possession of an ARTIS ticket pay €5 for a visit.

Warm yourself with winter delicacies
Winter scents and flavors are not lacking. Have a typical winter pumpkin and pea soup at the restaurants, and warm up with chocolate milk at the Conservatory. Various warm delicacies are available at the merry-go-round on weekends and holidays. Warm yourself with hot chocolate, soup, poffertjes and mulled wine with herbs from the edible garden of ARTIS.
