What to see
4. Copenhagen Zoo
Copenhagen Zoo opened more than 150 years ago. Back then, the zoo only had a few animals, but today it is home to more than 3,000 animals covering 264 different species. At the Children’s Zoo, you can pet the African dwarf goats, play on the expansive playground and meet farm animals at the Zoo Stage. Visitors can also watch the animals be fed and trained at scheduled times throughout the day. For a good view of the city, ascend to the top of the zoo’s iconic wooden tower.
Take bus 4A and walk the final 400 metres.
5. The Royal Danish Horticultural Society’s Garden
These beautiful gardens are the perfect setting for picnics. Known in Danish as Haveselskabets Have, the gardens are divided into 24 separate sections, each with its own theme, including small streams, tea houses and splendid trees. You can also meander through the 3,000-square-metre green labyrinth next to the gardens and see who can make it to the centre first.
Bus 8A takes you almost to the entrance. Or you can walk for about 10 minutes.
