One of the oldest zoos in Europe, Copenhagen Zoo was founded in 1859 and is located in Frederiksbert on 27 acres between Søndermarken and Frederiksberg Gardens. It is home to more than 3,000 animals from 264 species. The Tropical Zoo is a 1,500-square-meter rainforest with perfect conditions for crocodiles, snakes, marmosets, dwarf deer, birds and many butterflies.
In the Children's Zoo, kids can pet African dwarf goats and watch horses being trained. One of the most popular attractions is the spacious elephant house opened in 2008, considered one of the best elephant habitats in the world. There is a large, deep water trough where visitors can watch animals diving, from close up. The Arctic Ring, opened in 2013, allows visitors to get really close to polar bears, seals and some North Atlantic birds.
