My children really enjoyed the zoo, and we spent nearly a full day there. It seemed fairly quiet, we didn't see that many people whilst we were there, which does make a change from other zoos we have visited in the past! The polar bears were a highlight for my children.

This zoo is one of the best I have been in. It is large, with two sections joining together via an underground tunnel. I was particularly impressed with the polar bear. There is also a high tower that you can climb to the top to get an amazing view of the entire zoo. I would highly recommend a trip to... More

I think this place shoul be more famous. It is enormous and has a lot of attraction, unice animals and interactive items to enjoy. It is great place and all the animals looked calm and not under stress. In some of the areas you can be literally surrounded by animals. This is my favorite place.

Very nice 👍. Plenty of animals, clean and central located. My kid loved the zoo. A couple of playgrounds, some cafes, ice kiosks ant etc. Had a nice time, spent all day to see everything 🙈. And they have little goats, that you can go to and see it closer or touch :)

We went on a Saturday in late October. The zoo has a wide variety of animals, is clean and very relaxing. Well maintained. Places to purchase food or to sit and bring your own. Not far away are the Cisterns which is also an interesting place.

Visiting a zoo in winter will always be a different experience from summer so we spent our last day in Copenhagen visiting this zoo and had a really good time. As it was November some of the animals were not in there outside area and the enclosures were either being repaired on renovated but most of the star animals were... More

Nothing special, actually. If you stay longer in Copenhagen, has worth to visit with kids. Giant Pandas will arrive in year 2017!!!!

I have been in different zoos in Europe (Berlin, Prague) and I can confirm that also this zoo is very interesting and great designed for children and families. I visited this zoo with my husband and 4-years old son. He is a big animal lover and appreciates interesting places and animals. He was excited. We got there with shuttle bus... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Frederiksberg
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 Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
