The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

I have always enjoyed visiting the Zoo in Copenhagen. There is ever changing scenery, new and exciting adventures for the younger visitors, of which my daughter of 4 has enjoyed immensely.
The animals seem well adapted to life in the enclosures, some are even playful many times when we visit.
We have season-cards so we visit often, and the entry is easy and comfortable, even in these Covid-19 times.

We visited here for my partners birthday as we just love animals! The zoo is pretty big with so many animals - some of which I've never seen in person before like pandas and polar bears! There was lots of information boards about the animals written in both Danish and English. This was very helpful and inclusive. All talks however, are in Danish. The zoo even has a range of farm animals too. You are able (if you wish) to muck out the animals with the staff. I was able to pet cows in the petting zoo and was also able to pet a reindeer too! This was lovely.
You can tell that the zoo is very well maintained and all of the animals are really loved. The negative reviews on this zoo do not reflect in my trip! Such a wonderful zoo and all of the animals seemed happy.

It’s worrying that a lot of visitors have no issue being so intrusive towards the animals and even more worrying that this is doable due to the zoo itself. A poor red panda terrified because a visitor had held his camera right up to his face. Animals have absolutely no space, especially the Jaguars and lions. Full of depressing sights and no animal deserves to live like this, the chimpanzees absolutely broke my heart. In addition to the past killings of healthy animals, no worry about preservation just entitlement to animals as entertainment.

I'm afraid the childhood excitement of the mystery of a zoo is long gone. Once you have seen wildlife "in the wild", a lion or tiger enclosure is a very depressing place. This is an old and well-established zoo and therefore some of the facilities are unduly cramped and poorly fitted out. There are, of course, some "stars" like the panda and polar bears, however, for all the joy of the 3 polar bears frollicking in the water, there's also the large adult restlessly circling the tatty enclosure. A significant area is given over to commercial and hospitality outlets which detracts from the layout. It's a "good" zoo but is any zoo "good" these days?

Spent a day here and it was nice. The animals looked healthy and clean. There are no taxis lining up to pick up people and you might have to wait for one.

The park is nice with some good attractions, but expected more to see. The Dino's along the route were fun. But overall the park was kinda boring.
Worst part was the service in the restaurants.
Uninterested and slow.
We wanted to sit and relax at Cakes and Dreams, but it was fully reserved. No point having a cafe in a park if you cannot sit and enjoy freely.

I felt like I was was visiting Tivoli instead of a zoo as there was few animals in the compounds and a lot of shops selling all kinds of zouvenirs and food etc.
It would be great if the compounds were bigger but I guss that's always the case with zoos - and please remove the plastic cups etc. in the compounds it looks like a dump in some of them.

Today was a mixed experience. For one, the number of people/crowd was something that I have never experienced before. And I have been to the zoo a couple of times. Even though the administration checked for negative Covid, it was a bit of a concern. Now keeping fingers crossed for next two weeks :)

The animals are as always lovely. Some of them looked tired, it was a hot day. When the animals came out for the lunch break, it became quite lively. We were around the savana area at that time. I couldn't help but compare with Kolmården in Sweden which is a total different experience than the savannah here. I would rate Kolmården higher.

My favourite animals/areas today were the elephants, panda (who seemed to have way too much area to themselves as compared to the other animals like lions for example or polar bears). Polar bears, nonetheless, were having fun, their water could have been cleaner.

The other indoor areas like chimpanzee enclosure were not so much fun today mainly due to too many people.

This zoo puts down animals that are surplus, or no longer used. a 14 year old giraffe was shot and killed in front of a group of students for no reason.2 lions and their cubs were killed4 wolves were killed also. Cages are tiny. Terrible.
