This review submitted by NIELS JOHS LEGARTH IVERSEN,
September 2000

Aalborg Zoo in northern Jutland was founded in 1935, and it has always been the second in order among the Danish zoos. It is private, though the grounds are owned by the commune of Aalborg. It is placed in the southern part of the town at Molleparkvej 63-65 (behind the hospital at highway E 45). It is a nice, well kept garden with a clear structure. When you have passed the gates, you first see the landmark of the zoo, a quaint statue of some mythological giant carrying animals(it was donated by a local brewery). From here you can walk right and follow a path that leads you past some bird cages, chimps, lions (once it had Indian lions, but now they are all African), polar bears and orangs. You can study the polar bears swimming underwater through thick windows. At the far end of the garden there is a large area laid out as an African savannah. Close by you’ll find enclosures for African elephants, white rhinos and giraffes. Following the perimeter back towards the entrance you pass pygmy hippos, Malayan tapirs, the Tropical house (with golden tamarins and other monkey species plus birds and reptiles), followed by penguins and sea lions. These of course do the usual tricks once a day. After that you meet the camels, llamas and a South American pampa. The flamingo lake ends the trip along the perimeter. From the entrance area you can also walk down along the middleline to the savannah, but you will pass by the same things that I just mentioned, just seen from another angle. The garden has an attendance of between 350.000 and 400.000 per year.
