Ways to conquer Copenhagen's canals
It doesn't take much more than a few rays of sunshine before Copenhagen's waterfront is filled with renewed energy and joyful faces. Here are some tips on how to enjoy the city's beautiful lakes and canals.
Explore the canals as your own captain
Glittering water, fresh air and good food is just a great combination. With HeyCaptain! or GoBoat or some of the other boat rentals and tours you can pretty much bring your picnic anywhere.
Swimming in the harbour baths
Copenhagen's waters are clean enough to swim in, which makes the city's harbour baths vibrant with life all of the summer season. Make sure to swing by for a dip at Nordhavn or one of the other locations.
At your own pace
Probably the most popular way to enjoy Copenhagen's canals. Get your own kayak or a guided tour from Kayak Republic.
With public transport
The harbour buses take you all the way through the harbour from Sluseholmen in south to Refshaleøen in north. A pretty nice way to see the city and get around - and it only costs the same as a bus ticket!
On the traditional tour
No matter how many times we've done this, the canal tours never go out of fashion - especially not on a sunny spring day.
