We were given a map, but it was a little confusing to me. Clean, and there were so many little play areas for children and I liked... More

We found out after we went that there is a free bus from the centre of Copenhagen which is great because it's not well signposted if you're walking. Its a lovely zoo and when we went (spring) there were also lots of baby animals. They are building a panda enclosure for 2018.

The Polar Bear part of the Zoo is pretty cool. I've been to lots of zoo's globally - and Singapore Zoo is hands down the best. However, I dont recall seeing Polar Bears at Singapore zoo, but it might be because Copenhagen is a cold location!

We had a great time exploring the zoo with our young kids. The wagon was very helpful for kids. My son did not want to leave the playground with bunnies and goat area. The restaurant was also very good.

Glad to visit CPH zoo, the animals are full of energy even the day we visited was a raining day. Happy to see polar bears and sea otters! The food in the zoo was also good with a reasonable piece, staffs are friendly.

Because of the Copenhagen card we were granted a free access to the zoo. Honestly otherwise the ticket would be too expensive imo(180 DKK). There quite large collection of animals there. The experience was overall quite fun and you could even pet some of the animals.

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
