Our family of 5 spent a Sunday afternoon at this zoo. We struck a good balance that day- Visit Carlsberg brewery museum in the morning and then it was an easy walk over to the zoo for the afternoon. This provided something for everyone. The zoo has a wide variety of animals especially all the big ones that kids love to see. The polar bear exhibit was the best of them all because you walk through a tunnel and if you are lucky you can see it swimming above you. The zoo is small enough to be seen in a few hours. The food is very expensive and not very good. It wasn't feasible for us to prepare and bring along a picnic, but all the locals were pulling around wagons full of coolers and baskets. Not the most amazing zoo, but a nice one. The kids were happy and that is what counts! (The kids still say their favorite zoo is the one in Rotterdam, The Netherlands).
