Copenhagen Zoo Tours

star-5
15 Reviews
Copenhagen Zoo
Founded in 1859, Copenhagen Zoo is one of the oldest zoological gardens in Europe. The animal inhabitants of the 27-acre (11-hectare) zoo span all corners of the globe, including rare and endangered species such as polar bears, rhinoceros, giraffe, zebra, and lions. 

The Basics
Marvel at local wildlife in the dedicated Nordic area, which houses reindeer, muskox, brown bears, and gray wolves. Other highlights include the Elephant House, designed by legendary British architect Sir Norman Foster to house the zoo’s Asian elephant breeding program, the kids’ favorite Hippopotamus House, and a collection of native Oceanic animals, including the only Tasmanian devils to be found in captivity outside of Tasmania.

Most Copenhagen hop-on, hop-off bus tours visit the zoo along with city highlights such as the Carlsberg Brewery in Vesterbro, the Little Mermaid statue, Tivoli Gardens, City Hall, and the National Aquarium Denmark. Admission to the zoo is also included with a Copenhagen Card. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Copenhagen Zoo is a must-see for animal lovers and families with kids. 
  • The zoo’s labeling system indicates easy access to certain areas for the elderly and families with young children.
  • A limited number of wheelchairs are available for loan at the main entrance.
  • Two restaurants, Konnild's and Provianten, are located inside the zoo.

How to Get There
While hop-on, hop-off bus tours provide easy transportation to Copenhagen Zoo and other city attractions, it’s also possible to arrive via public transportation. Bus 6A from Central Station stops right at the zoo, and you can also take the train from Valby Station or the metro from Fasanvej Station. Paid parking is available opposite the main entrance along Roskildevej and Sdr. Fasanvej.

When to Get There
The Copenhagen Zoo is open daily and hours vary by season. Ticket sales close 30 minutes to one hour before zoo closing time, depending on the season. Animal feeding times vary weekly but are listed on the website a few days ahead of time. 

Frederiksberg Gardens
Copenhagen Zoo is located inside the Frederiksberg Gardens (Frederiksberg Have), one of the city’s largest green spaces. Here you can find a romantic landscape complete with lakes, canals, winding paths, and even a Chinese gazebo and waterfall. The vast park provides an escape from the city bustle and is a popular spot to sunbathe and picnic during good weather.
