  • Really nice Zoo. Long time since I last had been there, and who has been so fine. Much has been made out of details, areas that will cover parts of the world are well set up. It's a nice looking and acting in and output. When it is a zoo now so it's quite alright place animals have one can of course always wish for more space, but there is done a good job in the facilities for the animals. Everything comes naturally, not in a day, but may well be able to sea lions and seals seem to penetrate to new installations, since it has been the same for as long as I remember. The selection of eateries is fine, there is clearly more open during the summer season than here in winter. Prices are just for the good side, $45 for 3 small meatballs and a few small pieces of chicken and 3 cherry tomatoes and 2 slices cucumber which is children's menus. But it is a great park to be running around, so it must be taken with the ability is to take their own food, there are several places to sit and eat picnic. I'd probably still be able to choose to eat in the Park again, when one can look around what the money goes to. If there had to be something to wish there was something done about, it must be parking facilities. When there is busy, there is chaos in the parking lot. And when cars "must" be parked along the road in the one hand up to the farthest space will cause bottlenecks. But all in all a pretty good experience.

  • Small zoo with a lot of cool programs! tiger feedings and training hour is pretty rad, though good luck getting a good view (unless you are 3m tall) ;) the turtle house is phenomenal! ahh, such cool tortoises! the lemur house and aviary are also quite exciting. they do not offer turtle rides, however, nor do they sell the lion meat after dissection - both of which are terrible financial decisions on their part. great playground and petting zoo for the kids! lots of adorable goats to cuddle and squeeze to your heart's content. close to the train station and easy to find.
  • Very nice zoo. It's very good when you have kids. I can bring your own food and drinks and there are a lot of good and nice places to eat it. There are good playgrounds for the kids.
  • Odense Zoo is a very good zoo - good space for the animals, great staff and great handeling of the animals. One of the things I love the most is that they dissect the dead animals. It is a huge learning experience. Tough, yes. But very learning.
  • Nice sized zoo with a lot of interesting information services. The zoo spans the river and you can access the zoo from the river path as well (buying eticket online) and you can even take the boat from the city centre to the stop in the middle of the zoo. For a nice summer day it is the perfect little add-on to the zoo experience. The penguin habitat is especially fun - some of the penguins seem to enjoy staring at the visitors as much as the other way around. The habitat is unlike in many other zoos closed off and kept at a more normal temperature level for the penguins.
  • Very charming and educating zoo. The staff is the best. Always interested in talking to you, and help you with different stuff. I love this zoo.
