How to use

Before you start using the Copenhagen Card, you need to write the date and time of the start of use on the card. In museums and castles, the card will be scanned — and you will receive a free pass, in Tivoli you need to use fast track entry.

After activating the card, the card is valid for 24, 48, 72 or 120 hours. The countdown starts from the date and time that you write on the card. That is, if you write 14.00, the card will be valid until 13.59 the next day. The card is activated at the time it is scanned in the attraction.

Public transport

If you have this card, then you do not need to think about how much a trip in a particular zone will cost, since you have an unlimited number of trips on the card for as long as your card is purchased. For tourists, this is an ideal option, because you do not have to deal with the ticket purchase system, stand in queues to buy a ticket on every transport. Therefore, it saves money and time, which is always so little in

The same card gives the right to travel by public transport throughout the region, which includes Copenhagen Airport (it is located in zone 4). This means that you can activate your card right at the airport — and get from the airport to the centre of the capital for free.

That is, you can travel, for example, to Roskilde or Helsinger for free.
