Christmas in the Zoo

Christmas lights, delicious Christmas delights, a garden so beautiful and, of course, fascinating animals! You can look forward to experiencing that and much more if you visit Aalborg Zoo during Christmas.

All year round, Aalborg Zoo invites you inside for exciting, fascinating and not least pleasant experiences - and the magical Christmas season is no exception. If there is one thing Aalborg Zoo is especially known for, it is their impressive Christmas light show, which every year creates a magical atmosphere over the garden during the Christmas months. Colourful light landscapes and light animals will leave you in awe and these are just some of the things you can experience around the garden's light walk when Aalborg Zoo opens its doors for Christmas in the Zoo on November 18.

This year Aalborg Zoo celebrates love and intimacy, where its possible to have a kiss under the mistletoe, a romantic walk through the parks poetic landscape and visit the worlds most jolly Santa Claus. You can also see Santa Claus’s reindeers and sing carols around the big Christmas tree. Should it become a bit to pleasant, then you can experience the dinosaur exhibition. You will get a small Christmas scare, when you walk around the dramatic silhouettes and shadows of the great ancient animals.

And as always you can say hallo to many of the parks animals and wish them a merry Christmas.

Christmas delights

On your tour around the park, you will encounter a lot of stands with Christmas treats. Here you can be tempted by Christmas sweets and delicious barbecue dishes, and at Juletorvet - Smagen af Nordjylland you can find delicious specialties and good gift ideas from local North Jutland producers. You can also visit Restaurant Skovbakken, which is ready with the very large danish Christmas buffet.
