Christmas market in the Zoo
Copenhagen ZOO opens its doors to a lovely, old-fashioned Christmas. With more than 400,000 sparkling Christmas lights and cosy market stands, a regular ZOO visit is turned into a magical experience.
ZOO lights up during Christmas with gift workshops, crafts, Santa Claus, reindeers, Christmas treats and thousands of twinkling Christmas lights. Their ambition is to set the framework for the perfect family holiday experience.
In ZOO you can meet Santa Claus in Santa's House and take a trip with the ZOO-train, which has been transformed into the Christmas train for the time being.
There is also the option of making Christmas crafts at Santa's House, and children can make straw animals and even help feed the farm animals in the Children's Zoo.
The Christmas atmosphere is complete in the ZOO with 900 Christmas trees spread throughout, as well as reindeer and horses on walking through the park.
Of course, there are also gift boxes with crafts, Christmas decorations and small Christmas presents available at the cosy Christmas market, and the opportunity to satisfy the sweet tooth with Danish Christmas treats, glögg, roasted almonds, waffles, cocoa and lots of other Christmas crunch.
