Great zoo close to the city. Animals look well treated. Had a great time with the family, espesially looking at the polarbears.

We went to the zoo on a beautiful Sunny Monday, and although it was OK we were quite disappointed that some animals were missing and the place felt like it was on shut down. It was a little disappointing and think the zoo should consider...More

There were some enclosures which seemed far too small for animals such as the lions. But the elephant house and Arctic ring were really impressive. Nice day out but seeing the lack of space for some animals was a bit sad, can only hope they...More

We went on a very quiet day, there seemed to be either animals missing that were shown on the map or they were being moved. The first thing you see is lions in an enclosure that is by no means big enough for them. The...More

it is ok to visit the zoo but do not have high expectations on this place. It is nice though but it is not a must, if you ask my opinion. The kids were ok with it,

This is a smaller zoo to walk around.. However small zoo = small enclosures for the animals. Monkeys were great to watch but the lions look quite depressed there must be around 7-8 in the enclosure and it is not big at all.. I can...More

We enjoyed visiting the zoo in Copenhagen. Great variety of animals to see over the course of two parks. The park is slightly date I would agree though we didn't see any unhappy animals. Favourite part for us was seeing the giraffe enclosure. Decent day...More

First of all, I have real concerns about the size of some of the enclosures. The lions, with several cubs, seemed to have no room to run, all the stimulation we could see were a few Christmas trees tossed in the enclosure (in fact in...More

Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find
Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in
itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here
there are several fine theaters, from the experimental
to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which
specializes in transcribing the great London and New
York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several
years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find

Really . no idea. advisable to follow the zoo web site or better - to contact them directly over phone at the listed numbers.
Going her for a day trip from UK in February. Been advised to get a taxi rather than train. On average how much is a taxi from the airport to the zoo and does anyone know a reputable taxi company in the city?
