Copenhagen Zoo

Roskildevej 32, Frederiksberg, Denmark, 2000

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.

Worth buying if you’re going to visit places
Used this card for travelling on metro, train and canal boat tour. Visited den Blau planet, Tivoli Gardens, National Museum of Denmark and Ripleys Believe it or not. We had a 72 hour pass and done a flying visit at Tivoli as we didn’t realise you could only visit one time using the card.

City Sightseeing Copenhagen Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
Great way to see the city for the first time! Loved that the tour is available in different languages. Would have been great if there was more explanation how to find the starting point of the tour and all bus stops were visibly marked with the logo.

City Sightseeing Copenhagen Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
Great way to see the city if your time is limited. Would recommend! But the food vendors on one of the routes are only open seasonal. The drivers did not know that, so they were recommending to eat there and people were getting off the bus just to find out they were close. Next bus 1hr

City Sightseeing Copenhagen Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
This tour had everything I wanted to do and see. Their are several lines and all are worth riding around once first prior to getting off. Very easy to get around. Caution: there are several companies and they are all very similar looking buses but they have different stops so pay attention to where you get off.

Copenhagen is a lovely city and both the boat and bus tours were great. The only problem was that the sound system is very poor. On the purple line it didn’t work at all.

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.
