The zoo is quite central in Copenhagen. It's a bit pricy as is everything in Denmark. We were 2 adults and a fourteen year old. Child prices only go up to 11 years so had to pay full price for our daughter. €73 euros is...More

This review should not be published, but consider this. This attraction is called Zoo di Copenaghen! What language is that? The title should either be in Danish or English Danish: Zoologisk have English: Copenhagen Zoo

We were very impressed with Copenhagen Zoo on 8.06.17. It was also easy to get to on the bus from the station and it was included in our 72 hour Copenhagen Card. The animals seemed well looked after with beautiful enclosures that gave them space...More

I am sometimes dubious of visiting zoos - especially ones that are located within a city. However, Copenhagen zoo is terrific. The zoo is well kept and both facilities and enclosures are clean. It is hard to tell if animals are "happy" but these ones...More

Really enjoyed the overall experience of this zoo. Plenty of animals around and lots of side areas putting more depth into what you're seeing about you. Only minus point was the lack of zoo staff about when I tried to report a possibly sick animal....More

We went to the Copenhagen zoo primarily to see their polar bears. I thought I read that they have 6, but they have 2. They did not disappoint though. They have a nice enclosure and underground viewing area. My daughter loves polar bears, so this...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

Really . no idea. advisable to follow the zoo web site or better - to contact them directly over phone at the listed numbers.
Going her for a day trip from UK in February. Been advised to get a taxi rather than train. On average how much is a taxi from the airport to the zoo and does anyone know a reputable taxi company in the city?
