  • Beautiful aquarium, we are there. Very nice, lots of variety, great, really bother to do.

  • It is one of the most beautiful aquariums I have ever visited. Much has been made out of making the experience interactive with lots of touch-pads and buttons. But it costs $170. to enter, and if you do not have to expose themselves to the also very high prices in the restaurant, so one must go very very slowly around to spend more than an hour and a half in DBP. But nice ... that's it!

  • It was a good experience to visit the Blue Planet when I had an afternoon to kill in Copenhagen. Beautiful fish and animals, informative interactive displays and a good cafeteria. But has to be said that the aquarium in Dubai Mall beats this with several kilometers!

  • Really fantastic place even for adults. Great assortment of local fish, and tropical fish. Huge shark tank with glass tunnel, and hilarious sea otters. Very well-kept facility. Nice cafeteria looking out to the sea. Highly recommended.
  • Really a good place for the kids big and small. Easy access and good parking lot, all cost money. But worth the money you spend here. Not so good restaurant so if you have kids bring your own food. Part of the restaurant is only for this purpose.
  • A nice aquarium overall. The architecture looks great from the outside and I suggest you walk from Amager Beach. We were lucky to catch a feeding of the sharks and rays in the afternoon and that added to the overall experience. The trainers speak in Danish but they tried their best to summarize it in English for the handful of tourists present. This was very much appreciated. The aquarium is not too big and that is the only shortcoming. We were hoping to see jellyfish but there were none. Perhaps it's not best for their well-being to be kept in an aquarium. All in all, it was a great experience.
  • The place is quite small considering you pay £20 for entry. What is on show is impressive but hard to enjoy or relax when surrounded by screaming kids. Recommended if your life already involves screaming kids.
  • Nice aquarium with a variety of fishes and other sea creatures. Great for kids and adults, nice guides to ask a million of questions. Recommend a visit and do not forget the sea utters.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
