About the Zoo
Aalborg Zoo opened in April 1935 and is today one of the largest provincial year-round tourist attractions with up to approx. 375,000 visits a year.
The Zoo’s area covers 8½ acres, which is made freely available by Aalborg municipality.
The overall purpose is nature preservation, directly through international breeding partnerships and indirectly through the dissemination of knowledge about endangered animals.
Aalborg Zoo has more than 1,200 animals that are divided into approx. 138 species and employs annually approx. 55 people.
The Zoo Shop:
It has become a popular experience to visit Aalborg Zoo’s own living Zoo Shop, which is situated next to the entrance of the Zoo.
In the peak season, it may be a good idea to visit the shop early on in the day as most guests choose to shop just before they leave. We happily store your purchases for you while you explore the living animals.
We sell a wide selection of clothes, books, teddy bears, souvenirs, gift articles, decorative art, soft toys, toys, postcards, posters, napkins/candles, music from all over the world, DVD movies, jewelry, jigsaw puzzles, the entire Schleich assortment, and umbrellas and capes.
We have something new in the shop all the time, so it is always exciting to take a look around.
Pushcarts can be rented at the shop.
