It's about a 10-15mn walk from the station, in the rain it feels longer, but you can get a bus which drops you at the entrance to the aquarium. The building from photos looks fantastic, but as it was raining non stop we didn't get...More

There was nothing wrong with this place - a bit out of the way, but we were staying on that bit of the island anyway. Good views out to sea. Nice design to walk round, plenty of exhibits. Typical Blue Planet

Perfect choice for a rainy day. Good restaurant. A lot of people though on rainy weekends. Worth to visit at least once but we will come back again.

We visited Den Bla Planet mainly because it was cold and wet outside but we had a really delightful few hours here. The building itself was fascinating- very modern and beautifully laid out but as always the animals and fish made the visit. I have...More

We took a family trip out to the aquarium today and had a great time! It is a wonderful place for kids, the exhibits are visible enough that my one year old could see everything from his stroller. We loved watching the sea otters get...More

Came here on the wettest day I spent in Copenhagen and it was the best way to stay out of the rain. Relatively easy to get to via the metro trains. It is also free to enter with a Copenhagen card. The aquarium itself was...More

Some spectacular tanks but not a patch on the Chicago aquarium for sheer variety. Hammerheads and Pirarucu were interesting to observe and the lizard and butterflies in the tropical section were great. The sea otters too.

Interesting modern architecture with metal facade and organic curvy form, which is continued inside throughout the exhibition concept. Beautiful and diverse tanks, well maintained, but not overloaded. Several feedings (otters, sharks etc.) with live information in Danish and English. Tanks for touching baby sharks, sea...More

We left our luggage at the airport. The lockers are in car park P4. When we got to the aquarium, they had luggage lockers!
