I love zoos even though I hate them. This is a good one with lots of beautiful animals. The zoo also handled the Marius-case so well a few years back (the zoo killed a giraf), which is one more plus.

We were nearby so we decided to go and see the zoo. We arrived quite late so it wasn’t too busy and the animals seemed rather relaxed. My highlight were the elephants – they have a large enclosure and you can get very close to...More

Nice zoo with generally speaking good space for the animal. We were lucky enough to see baby elephants and lions but do check out the artic section where the polar bear likes to swim around and you watch through the glass

Enjoyed seeing animals native to Northern Europe. Thought this zoo was rather sad, however, as the animal habitats were old and very small.

Within the basic context of zoos, which are horrible disgraces to civilization, the Copenhagen zoo is excellent. A wide variety of animals on display. There was a baby elephant on the premises while we were there, and he is very cute. Other highlights were the...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
