Copenhagen Zoo

Local name: København Zoo

The zoo was founded in 1859 and is one of the oldest in Europe. It is home to over 3,500 animals, representing nearly 250 species from all over the world. The zoo is divided into 7 thematic sections. In addition to traditional sightseeing, you can also see them from above from the 43.5 m high observation tower.

In the section dedicated to the animals of the Scandinavian countries and the Arctic fields, there live polar and brown bears, arctic foxes, reindeer, seals and snow owls. In the Asian part, you can see Amur leopards, tigers, Indian elephants, tapirs and pandas. The African section is primarily the Elephant House, for which the zoo is famous, and the enclosures for giraffes, antelopes, zebras and hippos.

The Tasmanian area is home to Tasmanian devils, wombats and kangaroos. There is also an American and a tropical section. Children can visit a mini-zoo where farm and domestic animals are raised. They include cows, goats, llamas, ponies, rabbits and poultry.
