  • A nice trip for the whole family-also for teenagers. Togetherness completely down to Earth-a wonderful break from computers, video game consoles and the like. The possibility of exciting events for schools and institutions.

  • Odense zoo is always a big hit with children, and there are also very many good experiences. But I think that there is room for a little improvements here and there. URF.eks. it is a great pity that the ocean Aquarium is closed all the way down, and so I think that the big delete area could be made much more interesting. For there is not much to see in the otherwise large beautiful natural area ...

  • Was with my grandchildren to light show in Odense ZOO in the evening. It was a great experience for the kids, Saturday night at the start of the winter holidays. We all think it was really special to see lights and animals when it was dark and we ate there also. There are no so packed with people and the toboggan run and the playgrounds in the dark was a hit of the big ones. They talked about it when we got home and for several days thereafter, they think it was a cannon 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.
