Copenhagen Zoo is a fantastic family day out; it is split up in to areas both outdoor and indoor making it an ideal destination all year round. There are Animals from all the different continents and depending on what time of day you visit you can watch them being fed – check out the daily feeding times.
The tropical house is great on a rainy day where you can watch the butterflies fly around you or see brightly coloured snakes and frogs. Also indoors are the Elephant House, Chimp Jungle and World of Primates.
The Children’s Zoo is where the kids can pet the goats, take a pony ride, watch a cow being milked or run around the rabbit playground. You will find plenty of learning resources as you walk around to engage the children and you can also get their face painted as their favorite animal.
There are plenty of snack booths selling cold and hot snacks at various locations around the Zoo. Or you can eat in Provianten (a self service family restaurant) and Konnild’s (a café which overlooks the camels). There is also an indoor lunch room in the Children’s Zoo where you can eat your own food.
Visit the Zoo shop on your way out, the ground floor has a great selection of toys, posters and gifts, while upstairs is a wonderful selection of Danish kids clothing brands. You can also walk up the Zoo tower for spectacular views over Copenhagen.
It’s difficult to find a child who doesn’t love a trip to the zoo so what better place to hold a kids birthday party. Copenhagen zoo offer three different packages for different age groups including Animal detective (4-9 years), Creep & crawl (6-12 years) and Zookeeper (8-14 years). There are treasure hunts, workshops and the chance to feed the animals depending on which package you book. Some of the packages also include a gift for each of the children. Catering is available on request. For more details see their website
