Very interesting and informative. Fantastic aquariums and big oceanic aquarium. If just a little interested in sealife, set off at least a few hours.

If you are a plus size person with backpains, the large areas without seating opportunities may be problematic. The restaurants floor was filthy. But the exhibits in themselves was so good, so beautiful and wonderful I highly HIGHLY recommend it.

A place that feels like a deep sea in the ocean with an interactive glass display of aquarium life and a walk through the indoor rain forest

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

Yes it does. You can also get there by metro for free (if you have a Copenhagen Card, which also gives you free admission to Den Bla Planet) for a bit of travel variety, It's an enjoyable trip.
