Copenhagen Cruise Port Tours

106 Reviews
Copenhagen cruise port is a bustling travel hub. Over 300 ships arrive in Denmark’s capital every year—a city famous for its seamless urban design, 17th- and 18th-century architecture, and thriving bike culture. The port is a great starting point for cruises to the Baltics, St. Petersburg, Britain, and even Greenland. 

The Basics
After arriving at Copenhagen cruise port, you can head off on a city sightseeing shore excursion to see highlights such as Tivoli Gardens, an iconic Danish amusement park; Christiansborg Palace, home to the Danish Parliament; and the changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace, the Danish royal family residence since the late 18th century. You can also opt for a harbor cruise along the canals of the Christianshavn and Frederiksholm districts, passing by colorfully painted townhouses, bobbing houseboats, and the legendary Little Mermaid statue. For a more personalized experience, hop-on hop-off tours allow you to see Copenhagen on your own schedule. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Copenhagen has three cruise terminals: Langelinie Pier (Langelinje Quay), Nordre Toldbod, and Ocean Quay (Oceankaj). Ocean Quay, located in Copenhagen's North Harbor, handles the majority of cruise ship turnarounds.
  • Langeline Pier offers a variety of nearby shops and cafés, as well as the Copenhagen Information Center, a currency exchange, and ATMs. At the information center you can buy the Copenhagen Card, which offers discounts or free entry to numerous sights and museums throughout the city. 
  • Long-term car parking is available at Ocean Quay for a fee, but there is no parking at Langelinie Pier or Nordre Toldbod. 

How to Get to Copenhagen from the Cruise Port
Arriving in Copenhagen, you will disembark at either Langelinie Pier, Nordre Toldbod, or the Ocean Quay terminal. Langelinie Pier and Nordre Toldbod are both within a 30-minute walk of the city center, but you can also take bus 26, which runs every 20 minutes. City bikes are available near Langelinie Pier—you can check one out for the day if you prefer to pedal your way around Copenhagen. From Ocean Quay, take bus 27 to Østerport Station. From there, you can get to the city center in 10 minutes by bus or S-train. Taxis are also available at all three piers. 

Port Information
The local language in Copenhagen is Danish, but most locals speak at least some English. The currency is the krone, and credit cards are accepted throughout the city.
