If you have a Copenhagen card this attraction is free. We went after 10 am and it was extremely busy and loud inside. I was also a bit dissappointed in the size of the aquarium. The sea otters were lovely.

We visited on a cold and rainy day! Great day to see the aquarium. To be honest I was expecting a larger establishment, but being Australian I think we are already used to very big aquariums as standard. This one was no bigger than the...More

Really interesting aquarium. There is a huge indoor tank that includes rays, hammerhead sharks and even a turtle, but in addition there is an area that showcases local fish and animals (cod, otters, puffins etc) and an exciting rainforest area too. Exhibits all have information...More

In the eastern part of this neighbourhood, visitors
will discover Amager Strandpark, a beach area which
has become increasingly popular. It’s only a 30 minute
bicycle ride or a 10 minute Metro trip away from the
city center. Only a few hundred yards inland, some of
the most creative musicians, artists, and writers in
Copenhagen are occupying some of the old storage
houses and production facilities. The western part is

Yes it does. You can also get there by metro for free (if you have a Copenhagen Card, which also gives you free admission to Den Bla Planet) for a bit of travel variety, It's an enjoyable trip.
