  • Odense Zoo has in the past been a cozy place to come. After the last visit, it was clear my view that Odense Zoo has become a money machine. They don't think about the welfare of the animals but on pure merit. The lions have minimal place to be, and it's sad to look at. It is distasteful, that attracts attention by the paterer animals, in order to get more visitors. It is distasteful

  • There are no better places to go with children. Odense zoo is an extremely good place to get time to go with the family. The place is family-friendly and easy to get around with a pram, pushchair, trolley or other forms of transport. The garden is beautiful with the Odense River that divides the garden. Easy to get to see the animals of everything and that is the most amazing and kid-friendly playgrounds over everything. We should write something easier. So is the price. But the garden must run around. But do you do it to buy an annual pass. Yes it has earned it home after three visits. Nice and cosy place year round.

  • It could be great if there were more opportunities to buy healthy food (and much like organic), URf.eks. a mix even salad bar. And then it's so not much space animals!!! It makes a little sore in the heart to look at.

  • 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.
  • I am absolutely disappointed in this Zoo's views. A zoo isn't a freshman biology class and Giraffe's as well as Lions are not plentiful Frogs or any other commonly used specimen of experimental purposes. The fact that this Zoo said when asked about an Elephant dissection that they would love to dissect such a majestic animal (THANKFULLY they don't have any) absolutely sickens me. Disgusted and very displeased with this Zoo. Hope they change their views soon.
  • Would never go there now with this update on them killing the animals because they have too many?.. I think this serves as a great example as to why we, as the public, should not fund Zoos by visiting. They should be helping endangered species and allowing children (especially children) to gain empathy and an understanding of what the older generations mistakes have been regarding respect towards these creatures that share this planet with us. Instead, we have curators (I'd love to know what their yearly salary is) killing animals because they are mismanaging the zoos. This continues to give Zoos the equivalent to what circuses became. Total abuse for animals.
  • Boycott this zoo. They kill and butcher defenseless animals and feed them to the other animals. They are barabaric and vile. They butcher and cut up these defenseless animals in full view of the the adult patrons AND their children. Boycott this zoo. P.S. Notice that all the positive reviews here are from Denmark. I'm sure there are Danes who don't support bloodthirsty killing of innocent animals like Marius the baby giraffe and the lioness, but obviously the adult patrons and their children have been taught that animal life is worthless. Boycott this zoo. While you're at it, boycott Denmark too.
  • Killing animals in order to make room for new ones? The barbaric and despicable actions of the so-called 'keepers' and 'animal lovers' should be widely abolished. Why could they have simply let the animal go? Back to its original habitat for example? What's worse is that they are trying to justify their actions by claiming that what they are doing is educational. Nonsense. To them it's purely business; it is cruel and unnecessary and they are as bad as SeaWorld. Avoid and hopefully these idiots will generate some sort of compassion towards over living things.
