Though I consider valentine to be a Hallmark holiday, love in spring is a universal thing in nature. That’s why we went looking for love in one of Belgium’s biggest tourist attractions, Antwerp Zoo. The biggest surprise of this zoo is that it is located in the middle of Antwerp’s city center and is a direct neighbour of the fourth most beautiful trainstation in the world: ‘Antwerpen-Centraal’.

Love, of course, is a wide concept. We have the love between the animals and their handlers, the love between animals and love of course, love between visitors. Let’s have a look!

But let us not forget, the zoo remains a romantic destination!

Happy Valentine, however you choose to spend it!

Also a big thanks to the Zoo of Antwerp for giving us access to their excellent zoo!
