The baby wombat was cute, great to see the baby elephant and Tasmanian devils. But the polar and brown bear were sad and I don't think should be kept in such limited enclosures

Even if you have kids this is not the better place to take them! The animals are ok but the layout of the zoo is poor. Also I noted the polar bear was incredible sad and doing repetitive moments like he was taught to do...More

The zoo is well laid out and requires around 3-4 hours. The best attractions are polar bear, penguines, tigers, lions. Lots of places for kids to have fun. It would be good to add more educational and interactive shows for kids.

Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find
Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in
itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here
there are several fine theaters, from the experimental
to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which
specializes in transcribing the great London and New
York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several
years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find
