The Zoo in Copenhagen is a fascinating animal park and home to more than 4,000 animals from all around the world. See the African savanna, the Arctic circle, and enjoy the magical pandas. There is even a children’s section. Free entry with your Copenhagen City Pass.
The Copenhagen Zoo is located in the borough of Fredriksberg, a mere 3 kilometers away from the central station, but it might as well be thousands. Touring the Zoo truly means touring the globe’s fauna, as it holds animals from the remotest and most disparate regions of the globe and is committed to protecting their natural environments.
The Zoo is home to more than 4.000 different animals from all kinds of climate zones and natural environments. Visit the iconic pandas in the state of the art Panda House, and after travelling to the Arctic Circle to see the imposing polar bears and the majestic reindeers, you might feel like heading over to the Americas to see the California sea lions and the brown bears before you make your way across the equator to meet the chimpanzees, lions, and Humboldt penguins. And this is just the beginning of your journey!
You even have the chance to make a special booking to meet some of the animals up close. A giraffe swooping down to snatch a treat out of your hand or a waddle of penguins coming toward you to be fed are unforgettable experiences. Check the calendar for dates and availability! And you won’t have to go hungry, either. The Zoo allows you to bring your own food, but also offers various food and drink stations that will cater to your every need.
Of course, the Zoo does its very best to make sure that its small and large inhabitants live under conditions that resemble their natural habitats as closely as possible, so that even the heat-loving panda feels at home in Copenhagen. Additionally, the Zoo is committed to conducting, facilitating, and disseminating world-class research into the preservation of animals and their natural environments. This applies to the work being done at the facilities in Copenhagen as well as to several research projects and initiatives across the globe that the Zoo is an active part of. You’ll find the results of these efforts on display all over the grounds.
