  • 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.

  • Very nice zoo, everything is clean and tidy. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The animals seems happy. Over all one of the best zoos I have ever been to.
  • Amazing zoo, love to go there. Definitely recommend and worth going. Expect 5-7hours for first timers, don't rush through it.
  • I have been to give skood zoo. Compared to it odense zoo is ok ok..
  • Quite nice new areas, whare you can visit the kangaroos and wallabies, and the red panda has gotten new facilities as well, to allow it better freedom of movenment. In the tropical house you actually walk among the animals and might meet a small monkey face to face.
  • One if the best zoos I've visited. All the animals looked very healthy .

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.
