Copenhagen: Fishing

The Paris of the North

Copenhagen Fishing

Copenhagen is a fishing hotspot for anglers with many lakes, rivers, and off shore fishing sites available. You can experience on an original fishing trawler sailing out from Elsinore or Rungsted Harbour or if you feel more adventurous you can go out on the Baltic Sea from Lautrupkaj, Østerbro. Full day fishing trips in Copenhagen cost about 20 to 25 Euros and another 5 Euros for tackle. Dress warm and wear waterproof clothing as the weather can be unpredictable even in summer. Another option for visitors looking to fish in Copenhagen is that fishing boats throughout Danish harbours will often take anglers out to sea for a reasonable charge. Large groups can consider chartering a boat for themselves.

Sea fishing tours are arranged throughout the year from Copenhagen. The tourist office in Copenhagen can help provide a list of addresses, and regulations such as how small a fish you are allowed to catch and when you are allowed to catch it. All regulations on close seasons, minimum size limits, and preservation zones within the waters are found in the Fishing Act.
