Fodor's Review

Established in 1859, the Copenhagen Zoo blends the old with the new. The elephant house, by acclaimed architect Norman Foster, is an elegant structure topped by two glass domes, providing its

inhabitants with plenty of light and stomping ground. Modern glass enclosures for hippos and polar

bears also make for spectacular viewing. But children are just as likely to gravitate to the small

petting zoo and playground, which includes friendly cows, horses,

rabbits, goats, and hens. The indoor rain forest has butterflies, sloths, alligators, and other tropical creatures. On sunny weekends,

the line to enter can be long, so come early. Note that there are often extended weekend and summer opening hours.
