Aalborg Zoo

Wild and precious experiences all year round.

On the savannah, giraffes munch alongside zebras, kudus and the rare oryx antelopes. The polar bears enjoy a cooling dip in their water, the red pandas has just been served fresh bamboo, and suddenly, you can hear a mighty roar from the male lion who lets the entire zoo know that this is his territory. Aalborg Zoo is home for many interesting animals, and you can meet 12 out of the 13 most popular zoo animals. It is also the only place in Denmark where you can experience the African elephant, the orangutan from Borneo and the Asian lion.

Aalborg Zoo is open 363 days of the year - and no two days are alike. With far more than 100 different exotic animal species, educational experiences can be found everywhere in the park. You can see how the animals adapt to the different seasons and watch the animal cubs, calfs and kittens grow. In the South American house, the sloths climb freely about in the lianas above your head, and it is also the place to be if you want to get close to an armadillo and perhaps see a capybara for the first time.

Enjoyment and communication go hand in hand at Aalborg Zoo. At the Zoofari stage, the zoo’s own-trained animals perform with their keepers in entertaining shows to teach the audience new things about animal life from all over the world.

At the elephant house, they focus on combating poaching in South Africa. Together with the zoo’s guests, Aalborg Zoo supports a groundbreaking project that successfully fights for the survival of elephants and rhinoceroses. Nature preservation is part of the zoo's DNA, and there is a focus on using co-ordinated breeding programmes to ensure healthy and viable populations of endangered species. Aalborg Zoo contributes to initiatives of reintroducing animals to the wild from its heard of oryx antelopes; a species that was formerly extinct in the wild.

In addition, each year on Christmas Day, December 24, enterance is free between 10:00-13:00.
