Extinction - the dinosaurs are coming!

In 2019, you have been able to experience the spectacular dinosaur exhibition, which tells the story of how dinosaurs have evolved over millions of years.

During our own visit, we explored among the roaring, lifelike giants, all of whom were life-size. This really impressed the kids.

Extinction can be experienced from April 4 to October 18.

Christmas in Aalborg Zoo

During Christmas 2019, there was extra spectacular decoration in the park. Thousands of Christmas lights, which accompanied the guests through magical light landscapes, were hung up at will. 

This was an important factor in the fact that several annual passes were sold that year, especially for Christmas presents, which made the event a great success for the garden, and testifies that it has been worth visiting.

Due to its popularity, Christmas at the Zoo will be coming again next December. If you are considering visiting Aalborg Zoo in December, then this can be highly recommended to see the beautiful Christmas lights and experience the animals in the cozy Christmas atmosphere.

  1. Top nice zoo

    We have a really nice Zoo here in Aalborg, filled with a lot of different interesting animals & #8211; they can be experienced both inside and outside. A tour of the train garden around is an option & #8230; Performing several times daily on the big stage is quite entertaining for small & large children. Food is very welcome to bring & #8230; alternatively it can be purchased in 4 different locations in the garden. As something new, kids can frolic in the large playground connected to the forest behind the zoo via a long cable car that traverses across the parking lot and up into the wooden crowns. The visit can be rounded off in the large kiosk at the entrance / exit and perhaps the cow can become, for example, a toy animal to enjoy on the return trip.
