  • It’s an ok place with many attractions and beatiful creatures. But it’s way way way too crowded and the check in line is slow and on a busy street with risk of getting hit by traffic.  more »
  • Fine for a day visit. It is a good place to visit for families and couples. A single person can also enjoy the zoo of course. There is a good variety of animals to see, I personlly enjoy the non...  more »
  • Attention, this is a place where they are splitting people in A and B people, just like the Jewish!! Not a family environment, big guards at the gates to separate people! Can get dangerous for family....  more »
  • One of the best I've been in. And I have visited many zoo's around the world. Melbourne, London, Berlin etc etc. The animals here all seemed to be very comfortable. Big 5 stars from me.
  • Odense Zoo is a lovely park. Having been named among the best zoos in Europe, it's a great place to while away a few hours. And if you prefer a more interactive experience, they regularly offer special feed-the-giraffes or behind-the-scenes tickets. The only reason I rate it a 4/5 is the fact that it is on the smaller size, which may not necessarily be a drawback to everyone. But what it lacks in size and variety, it easily makes up for in charm.
  • Nice place for kids to visit Bit small zoo, however you can have a whole day day out with family and friends. Several places for kids to play. If one plan the trip we'll the can see several feeding sections.
  • Very big zoo and in awesome weather we walked everywhere. The playground was just the best and the water display beside it beautiful. It was fun to walk the rope bridges. And we met the chicken from the movie Moana 😂
  • Beautiful zoo. Spacious and built with adventure in mind. Many opportunities for young kids to explore different walking paths and learn about the animals.
