Making the Most of Copenhagen, Denmark

Making the Most of Copenhagen, Denmark


GETTING THERE

If your cruise starts and/or ends in Copenhagen, the Disney Magic berths at the new Ocean Quay terminals in the Nordhavn port district. Parking, however, is at the nearby Freeport Terminal. The 2017 Eastbound Transatlantic Repositioning arrives on May 28, and four sailings depart Copenhagen after that, the last, a 10-night repositioning to Dover, departs June 18. Debarkation time for arriving cruises is 8:00 am, and all aboard time on embarkation day is 4:00 pm. (See page 118 for more on embarking and debarking in Copenhagen). If your cruise only visits Copenhagen for the day (which doesn't happen in 2017), you’re most likely to dock at Langelinie, less than 2 miles from the city center. The Copenhagen Tourism Office operates an information center at Langelinie’s cruise terminal, which is more of a long quay than an actual terminal. Denmark’s currency is the krone (DKK) but euros and major credit cards are widely accepted. Note that this is a pricey place, especially when it comes to alcohol.

GETTING AROUND

You can easily get from the Langelinie cruise terminal to the city center on foot in less than 15 minutes. Otherwise, you can take a taxi (DKK 80 to DKK 100/$15-$18). A less expensive option is the local bus route 26, which runs every 20 minutes and will set you back DKK 20 ($3.60) one-way for the trip. Renting a car isn’t practical at this port of call. The easiest way to get around Copenhagen and see the major sights is aboard a hop on/hop off bus. An all-day ticket costs DKK 175 ($32) adults, DKK 87 ($16) ages 5-15, under age 5, no charge, and you can board a bus right at all cruise terminals. Alternatively, you can opt for the Copenhagen Card, which gives you free public transportation by bus, train, and metro all over the city. A one-day card costs DKK 339 ($62) ages 16 and up, DKK 179 ($33) ages 10-15, under age 10 no charge. The card also includes admission to 72 museums and attractions, including a canal tour. Check http://www.copenhagencard.com for details. If you’re up for being active, there are 1,300 free “city bikes” available all over Copenhagen. Those are very popular, though, so you might miss out in the busy summer.

SAFETY

Denmark is a safe place to travel to, and so is its capital. Since you’ll be in a large, touristy city, though, it is always best to be aware of your surroundings and keep an eye on your belongings at all times. Pickpockets flock to crowded places and look for tourists as easy targets.
