The zoo in Antwerpen is the oldest zoo of Belgium. For this winter, they are celebrating the holidays the Chinese way: with a light festival. We decided to check it out and didn’t regret it. A big part of the zoo is illuminated with all kinds of animals, making it a light festival both adults and children can enjoy.
We entered at 18.00, when the festival opens, because we wanted to get back at a decent hour for Febe. If you are not going with small children, I would advise to go a bit later to avoid the crowd at the opening. It’s best to book your tickets in advance, because it has been sold out a couple of times. The China Light Zoo runs untill 18/01/2015.
