  • Have had a lovely trip to Odense Zoo today. It was a positive experience where we had seen the whole garden and all its animals. In particular, the monkeys were interesting to look at ☺ ️ We got a sandwich with chicken, pesto and mozarella cheese for 35 kr. Not the great taste sensation but fine for the price. In addition, there is a large parking lot across from the zoo, where it is free to keep ☺ ️

  • Odense Zoo is decorated, so as not to just see what awaits the next corner. It gives a fairly adventurous effect-and the garden is really nice. It is as if someone has used their imagination better than they have in the Zoological Garden in Copenhagen. There are no elephants and rhinos, but both the Tigers, Lions, giraffes and petting. Small trips with the garden's small train is a hit for little legs. Warm recommendation.

  • A fantastic zoo. Big areas for the animals, beautiful decorations and a well made tour. Very accessible and great for children.
  • One of the prides of Odense is definately the ZOO. I highly recommend to go and see the penguins. Their habitat is unlike any other ZOO penguin habitat I have ever seen. Also, go see the Sibirian tiger and the red panda!
  • It's big, lots of green, quite a variety of animals. But on a cold late fall Saturday, it was very empty and almost all cafés/restaurants were closed. It's also pricey.
  • Not as fancy as CPH Zoo but more immersive.
  • The best Zoo experience in the World. Perfect meeting first hand with all the animals. Good place for kids and exciting for the adults.

Where to stay in Odense

Variety is no problem when searching for a place to stay in Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson. The city is a transportation hub for the rest of the island, and many of its sights can be seen by foot or bicycle no matter which neighborhood you choose to stay in. There is no shortage of hotels here, though it is more expensive to stay in the city center. For more affordable options, look outside the center, or if you want a prime location, a basic hostel in the city center. If you prefer a more personalized experience, the city boasts a number of guesthouses and family-owned bed and breakfasts.
