Aalborg Zoo

Step into the wild at Aalborg Zoo. Hear the roar of the lion at feeding time, come eye to eye with an orangutan, watch polar bears frolic in the water, and give the children a hands-on experience at the petting zoo. 

In 2012, Aalborg Zoo was found to be the most popular zoo in Denmark outside of Copenhagen, as the zoo experienced sky-high numbers of visitors with a total of 410,000 guests. In 2013 Aalborg Zoo set a new record of 470,000 guests, and then did so again in 2014.

Popular playing area for the entire family
In 2014, a new big playing area with a playground, a barbecue area and a scene was opened in Aalborg Zoo. Here you can enjoy your lunch out in the open, while the children play nearby.  

Luxurious predator facilities
In 2012, new and big facilities for lions and tigers were opened. Both species now have way more room than before, as the tiger facilities have doubled in size, while the lion facilities have been expanded even more. Furthermore, the area for the audience has tripled in size, and now includes a platform from which you have a perfect view of both lions and tigers.

Popular polar bears
The polar bears in Aalborg Zoo are popular. Aalborg Zoo was the first zoo in the world to set up webcams for people to follow the birth of a polar bear. The polar bear facilities in Aalborg Zoo allow people to follow the animals from different viewpoints. In December 2008, the cub Milak was born, and in 2010 the cub Augo saw daylight too.

African village
Aalborg Zoo has created an authentic African environment with a 16 meters tall thatched savannah stable which houses zebras, warthogs and antelopes. In the village you can also meet ostriches and mini hippos. Experience the African savannah where giraffes and the other African animals run around on their own Danish savannah. Through the year, the African village in packed with activities like cooking, dancing, etc. for the entire family.
