Nice zoo with generally speaking good space for the animal. We were lucky enough to see baby elephants and lions but do check out the artic section where the polar bear likes to swim around and you watch through the glass

The Copenhagen Zoo is a gem, small enough to enjoy in two or three hours but with plenty of surprises, baby hippos and petting areas, and it was completely enjoyable. It was also nice to get away from the crowds in the center of Copenhagen....More

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
