Best day out I had in Copenhagen, so many things to see you don’t realise how long you’re there for. Well worth the money & would definitely visit again.

Nice and cozy, mordern zoo. Very environmental concerned. You can bring a lunch pack a do a picnic or you can by food there. It is a bid expensive. Right next to a wonderfull Garden/Park called Frederiksberg Have.

First of all I don't like zoos so much. For me in zoos the conditions and enclosures of animals are the most important thing. I've been in a couple of zoos in Europe, but this was suprisingly good-looking zoo. The Enclosures of animals were suprisingly...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

Was there in Feb, it was a fantastic zoo and even though there is building work, it didn't ruin the day.
