Overview:

Copenhagen is a great city to begin or end a Scandinavian cruise adventure.  Bring your walking shoes, or better yet, rent a bike to discover the many sites. If pedaling or walking is not your thing, don’t worry. The public transportation system is efficient and easy to use.

Copenhagen love bikes!

 

Where the ships dock

Cruise ships dock at the Port of Copenhagen. Cruise ships will dock at one of wo major port facilities: Langelinie Pier, about 1 1/2 miles from city  center is used for day calls; and Freeport Terminal, approximately two miles from town, is used for turnarounds (beginning or ending cruise vacations).

Top attractions, not to be missed:

Denmark’s capital and what some claim is Scandinavia’s liveliest city, Copenhagen was founded in 1167 and has been Denmark’s capital since 1417. Because of her rich history, pick one area of interest to experience and plan to come back.
