This is a good zoo with an amazing range of species. All animals looked happy with no stereotypical behaviour observed on the day. Some unique enclosures and many arctic species to include musk ox, arctic fox, polar bears, reindeer, snowy owls etc. I got the...More

If you have the Copenhagen Card and a couple of extra hours, this is a great attraction. A zoo that has nice habitats is the best we can expect. Some animals were pacing, but such is the nature of zoos. I was surprised to see...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.

Beginning of the end for zoos? (53 Replies)
After reading what happened today at the Copenhagen zoo I have to wonder how this could affect tourism to the zoo and to Copenhagen this year. This is the time of year people start to plan their summer vacations. And what about all zoos in Europe? The European Association of Zoos sanctioned this. Just go look at the new zoo reviews that have been added today - most of them by people that have never used TripAdvisor before. tripadvisor.ca/Attraction_Review-g189541-d24… If TripAdvisor...More

I imagine the imact Will be minimal and most of the 'reviews' Will be removed. I personally don't know enough about why the giraffe was killed to comment but dó feel that if it 'had' to die, feeding it to the Lions was a good thing, much better than just letting the meat go to waste and obvioulsy completely representative of what happens in the wild.
