Looked promising from the outside, rapidly proved otherwise starting with buying tickets... my partner and I waited for 5 minutes for the guy on the till to finish his (personal) phone call which he ended with"..got to go, I've got a huge queue forming." It was two people and we'd been there for 5 minutes! Displays - interesting I guess... More

I stopped by here as it's on my way home every night and was part of the Copenhagen Card. Other than that it was not worth the visit. This place is perfect for young ones but as an adult better off giving it a miss. Not much here and nothing to keep your here. Ore than 10 minutes

One of the most magnificent Imax cinemas we've ever seen. And with a very exciting selection of movies. A must See! I've noticed that some complain about that the exhibition area is a bit dated, and that's partly true. Although the kids found it interesting enough, and the lecture about the light from two great guides were incredibly exciting. Either... More

The exhibition itself is mostly related to the contributions of Tycho Brahe (as you would expect), space exploration and a few interesting pieces related to space history and the space race. It is clearly geared towards young children, but as an adult with an interest in science and history I had a great time. The domed IMAX movie theater had... More

The IMAX film (Life in Universe) was quite good, but otherwise the planetarium's exhibition was quite limited in its offering. Some nice interactive content, but I felt like there could be more to offer.

Quite a small place, took about half and hour to wander round . Some interesting exhibitions with some interactive elements and most pieces translated into English, great for inquisitive children. The shows are the most impressive bit and are really interesting and educational. You get one included in the price of admission and its on the Copenhagen card too. It... More

Got in free with the Copenhagen card which included one free Imax film. We went for the next film which was about dinosaurs and there was also a pre-film of the universe in 3d which was amazing. Headphones for 20DKK which you get to keep and these put the narration into English. We had about 1 hour before the film... More

However, the area in the backside of the planetarium is beautiful this exhibition doesn' t worth a penny. It' s very small and offers nothing really. The movie about the dinosaurs could have helped if we wanted to see it but after the visit I' m not too sure about that either. Although the welcome was good by the staff... More

I saw a 1 hour IMAX movie here today about dinosaurs. The welcome was friendly, it cost 144 Krone and they sold me headphones for 20 Krone to listen to the English version. The IMAX experience is well worth it, blows your mind!

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
