I am very grateful, thank you. Monday is fine. It is ashamed that the first one doesn't accept credit cards.

They asked me to mail them an international check now. ( you will receive an invoice and pay, as soon as you can, you have to pay before arrival.) I want to use a credit card but they said No Credit Cards!

I have kids at age 2 and 4. From the Visit Copenhagen website, it says with the 24-hour bus ticket, each adult can take 2 kids of under age of12 for free. And I found that most places (except Tycho Brahe and Den Bla Planet) are free for my kids. So my question is, do I have to get City Pass or Copenhagen Card for them?

*Edit* Sorry, I should have done my research before posting. Found that City Pass let me take 2 kids under 12 for free, and Copenhagen Card let me take 2 kids under 10 for free

But then you are putting up obstructions for yourself :-)

I don't know if its the same for the other companies will I will collect a few that you can choose from.

Danish viking for 2 people traveling together can they buy 2 Cityipass on one phone? I ask because I see it's not recommended on the Citypass website, DW does not have a phone. We will always be traveling together.

As I read it its only if you split up that its handy to have separate tickets, as long as you stick together its shouldn't be a problem.

Danish viking, first, thank you for your helpful responses.

Would it be easy to catch a taxi at the Nordhavn train station, around 1pm on a Thursday afternoon?

I think you have a better change at Nørreport because Nordhavn seems to be a more quiter area with very little traffic.

Østerport would be my next choice but its currently under reconstruction until 2019 so I think Nørreport is the safest choice,

We have a cruise on the Serenade August 26, 2017 and we are not sure of which Port we will leave from but wanted to know what our best option is from the Hotel Bethel to the cruise port. I haven't checked with our Roll Call but we have around #40 staying there so am sure many will do their own transportation. Is Taxi the best for 2 people.

Grat news.

BC Hospitality Group that runs Crowne Plaza, Bella Sky (AC Hotel) and Marriott will run a shuttle between Oceankaj and the 3 hotels on 65 selected days during the cruise season.

Prices are 125 kroner for adults and 75 for childrens.

I will see if I can find more info about departures, travel time, what until what ages they are childrens etc etc.

Btw its the same company that runs a shuttle from the airport to their hotels.
We're at the AC Bella in Aug. Our cruise leaves from Langelinie (Quay 190). I assume we would be out of luck to take this shuttle? There are no ships at Oceankaj that day.

Also I believe there was a bit of discussion on the 2016 thread about the Copenhagen card and when it makes sense to get it and when it doesn't. Does anyone have a link to what part of the thread had that in it? I meant to save it and didn't.

Thanks for your tireless efforts here answering everyone's questions.

Its Oceankaj.

The taxi is of course the easiest way but else you have 2 other options.

Take the metro to Nørreport from Kongens Nytorv and catch bus 25 from there.

Or

Take bus 26 from Kongens Nytorv to Østerport and catch bus 25 or 27 from there.
Remember to not use the first bus stop at Østerport but the second one.
