Elephants, hippos, lions, monkeys and polar bears. A visit to Copenhagen's Zoo in the Frederiksberg area is always a wild and exciting experience.
Copenhagen Zoo houses over 3,000 animals, which together form 264 exciting species. Whatever the weather Copenhagen Zoo offers tropical experiences in the Tropical Zoo.
Snakes, crocodiles, marmosets, hornbills, dwarf deer, free-flying birds and butterflies are just some of the animals you can experience in the 1,500 m2 large rainforest.
In the Children's Zoo it is possible to pat the African dwarf goats and meet the farm animals at the Zoo stage. Here you can also experience the horses being trained, and you can pet them when they are fed at the grooming stations.
Elephant house and The Arctic Ring
In 2008 Copenhagen Zoo opened a new elephant house designed by Norman Foster. The plant is considered one of the best elephant facilities in the world. Here the animals can be seen at close quarters, for example, when they bathe in a water tomb, which is deep enough for the elephants to dive under so their entire bodies are covered.
In 2013 Zoo opened The Arctic Ring, which gives you a unique opportunity to get close to polar bears, North Atlantic birds and seals both above and below the water surface – an experience unparalleled in Europe.
The daily programme is displayed on Zoo's website and on information screens at the entrance. Here you will find information about feeding times, newborn animals, the Zoo stage programme as well as other events.
