We took the Metro to Kastrup, from where the Blue Planet Aquarium is well signposted. There is lots to see at the Aquarium and information panels are clear and easy to use. Some of the lighting graphics are amazing and caused a lot of amusement for the children visiting the Aquarium. The different displays are all good and we especially... More

Took my wife on Valentine's Day 2017 and importantly she had a great time. Keeping my wife happy aside, this is a really good place to visit. The aquarium has a bit of something for everyone. As a couple we had a lot of fun and the loads of kids there seemed to be having a great time as well.... More

Hi Anthony, Thank you for your visit and your review. I'm very happy to hear you had a good time here. Previously we had "old school" painted displays at the individual tanks but that was very time consuming to maintain and change when the fishes changed so about a year and a half ago we introduced the touch screen displays....

Good day out. Quick metro trip from centre of city. Near airport. Worth the trip if you want something different to do in the day. We was there for a few hours. £20 an adult. Perfect for families with kids. One of the tanks is massive.

Hi BillbonesLondon, Thanks for your visit and your review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. I think you are referring to our Oceantank with hammerhead sharks and stingrays and it is indeed massive. To be exact it holds 4.1 million litres of water and is the size of 40 city busses. Kind regards, Tue / Den Blå... More

As we were travelling on our first city break with our 7 year old, this was on our 'to do' list and it did not disappoint. This was an excellent 1/2 day trip with plenty to do. I would recommend getting there early as the queues were building up when we left at lunch time. The otter feeding is brilliant,... More

So this was super close to the airport and we jumped on the metro and one stop away got off and a ten minute walk or so to the actual aquarium. Dragging our bags across was a bit of a pain, but well worth it especially as we could dump them in the large lockers. It was super busy but... More

Hi DoveOnTravels, Thank you so much for your visit and review. I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed it here and if can only endorse your idea of spending even more time here! ;) I'm sure that hammerhead sharks, sea otters and puffins won't mind the company.

A nice modern aquarium. Large tanks. Lots of interesting sea life. Decent café (they had live jazz that day). A bit crowded with small kids.

Being inside the Blue Planet is depressing. The fish are beautiful but the place has no soul. All the questions you may have about the animals are left unanswered. There is no information anywhere. I will definitely not come back.

Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your visit and review - though I'm sorry to hear you left with so many questions unanswered. I'm also a bit puzzled since there are interactive touch screen displays at every individual tank, sometimes several in fact, with information in Danish, Swedish and English about all the fishes. We've recently made it available on our... More

We went on a very cold day - impressive building a short walk from the station, but best are the displays - lots of room around them, lots of view points for the main tanks and the puffins are so sweet. Good cafe too with view across the sea.

Hi Hectorshouse09, Thank you very much for your visit and your review. I'm happy to hear that you had a good time even despite the cold. We rarely get comments about the puffins so I'll be sure to pass that along. I'm not sure if they'll understand but it's worth a try. Kind regards, Tue / Den Blå Planet More

Neighbourhood Profile
Amager
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 one of Copenhagen's most rapidly evolving areas, here you’ll find international architecture of the highest rank, the state of the art TV-Byen (the Danish pendant to BBC), a golf course as well as Copenhagen's best (and tiniest) ice bar.
