Create an itinerary including Odense ZOO
Odense ZOO houses more than 2,000 animals and 147 species from around the world including red pandas, endangered tapirs, Siberian tigers, and giant manatees. At the time of its opening, the zoo had two apes, a peacock, a deer, a mule, a magpie, and a guinea pig. Accompany an animal keeper, feed the giraffes, or spend the night at the zoo in your own savannah tent in the African camp. In 2001, the zoo opened the "Oceanium," featuring South American animal life. Amenities include plenty of restaurants and a children's playground with a jungle gym.

  • Zoo was Ok but crowded. only good thing about this Zoo is that this is located at the center of Odense. Better to avoid this.

  • Great place to send 6 hours, before checking in to our hotel. We got there just before it opened, so it was nice a quiet. Totally enjoyed ourselves, even during the start of the heat wave. Hope to go....  more

  • It’s a nice place to go for visit as couple it will take max 3 hours to see all the attractions. Zoo is family friendly with lot of attractions for kids. Some places it can get overcrowded.

  • Very nice time. I really enjoyed the layout and it was very easy for me to find where what is even without speaking a word of Danish. From what my friends translated though, the keepers have good humour and explain everything very competently!
  • Of all the Danish zoo gardens located in a city (as opposed to out in the countryside where space is plenty) this is by far the best. Both in terms of visitor experience and care for the animals. We especially like how they create an ambience with themed surroundings (like the trade station in Africa) and the wide selection of animals. Finally there are food options for most diets which is a bonus.
  • This zoo is very children friendly and an excellent picnic spot. Animals have been kept in reasonably good condition. I am surprised that they have not kept any Asian animals. Food options are good.
  • We (me and grandchildren) enjoyed it very much. The zoo are very well kept and staff are friendly and helpful. Many things to do then just looking at animals face painting, canoeing zipline , playgrounds are all over and cafes serve good food. Well done
  • Amazing zoo! The habitats are very open and allow you to feel relativity close without actually intruding too much. The shops, cafes and many of the enclosues are themed which is super cool and a nice change from Copenhagen Zoo. Highly recommend a visit, one of the nicest and coolest zoo's I've ever been too.
