The Paris of the North

Copenhagen River Cruise

Boat Cruises in Copenhagen are widely available, reasonably priced and very popular. One of the best ways to take in the beauty of Copenhagen’s harbour area, boat cruises allow you to explore the canals up close and personal and watch the sun set at dusk. Most cruises offer guests exciting food. Canal cruises in Nyhavn harbour, once the home to sailors and Hans Christian Andersen make stops along the colourful houses, bars and jazz cafes. The boats travel in a circular route.

Cruises depart from Copenhagen’s waterfront from April 1st to December 31st. You can also charter a yacht for your own private party, book a seat on a regularly scheduled cruise, or plan a special event cruise. From mid-May - mid-September the Harbour bus (901, 902, 903) also connects daily to Christianshavn from Nyhavn, the Royal Library and Nordre Toldbod. Dinner cruises can also be booked; they depart at 19:00 and cost Euros 50. Guides speak English and Danish; and may also speak German, Italian, Spanish or French.
