Copenhagen Zoo

The Copenhagen Zoo opened its gates in 1859 and has since grown to house over 3,000 animals. It has everything you’d expect from a zoo plus an array of special children’s events at any given time. Check the website to see what’s in store for your visit. Tip: The zoo’s map shows the locations of restrooms with changing tables as well as designated quiet areas for breastfeeding if you prefer a private place.

The Blue Planet

Visit Denmark's national aquarium, Den Blå Planet for a day full of fun. The fascinating creatures will amaze you and the world-class architecture will take your breath away. The staff is friendly and always ready to help, and the exhibitions will teach you all about life under water.

Address: Jacob Fortlingsvej 1, 2770 Kastrup


If it's the interactive animal experience the kids want, but you aren’t necessarily looking to expend the energy on a full day excursion, Byoasen is an ideal alternative. Literally translated as “city oasis,” it is a small petting-zoo style park located in the trendy Nørrebro section of the city. There is also a staffed-playground and picnic tables so you can be sure your kids play safe while you enjoy a cup of coffee. Just a few steps outside this little ‘oasis’ you will find boutiques, antique shops, and cafes.

Address: Vesterbrogade 3, 1630 København V

The Laundromat Café

The idea for this café started with the demand for a place to do laundry and socialize in a cozy and comfortable setting. Now you can do just that while also eating, drinking, reading, and playing. The Østerbro and Frederiksberg locations have a special play area for the kids.

Located three places in Copenhagen:
Elmegade 15, 2200 Nørrebro
Århusgade 38, Østerbro
Gammel Kongevej 96, Frederiksberg
