Ocean Quay cruise terminal in Nordhavn

To and from the cruise terminals

Copenhagen has three cruise terminals: Langelinie Quay, Nordre Toldbod, and Ocean Quay. Here is information about getting to and from the ports.

How to get to and from the cruise terminal

Copenhagen has three cruise terminals, Langelinie Quay, Nordre Toldbod, and Ocean Quay (Oceankaj). The cruise terminal Ocean Quay in Copenhagen's North Harbour, Nordhavn, was inaugurated in 2014 and is the quay where the majority of turnarounds are handled.

Bus number 27 runs from Oceankaj to Østerport Station. In the summer period, bus number 25 also runs between Nørreport Station and Oceankajen with a stop at the Østerport Station. 

Bus 26 still runs from Langelinie, as it says on the website.

To and from the terminals at Langeliniekaj and Færgeterminal Søndre Frihavn you can take bus 26 which will take you to Kongens Nytorv square, Copenhagen Central Station, Østerport and City Hall Square.

Bus 27 serves between Oceankaj and Østerport Station. From here there is easy access and around 10 minutes to the city center by bus or s-train. Please check the destination on the bus.

Your Public Transport (DOT) has ensured that bus 25 runs from Oceankaj in the summer period when we have cruise ships. This means that you now have the option to take either bus 25 or bus 27, if you arrive at Oceankaj in the summer period.

You will need a two-zone ticket, which costs DKK 24. You must buy the ticket online or at the station before entering train or metro. You can buy tickets on the bus from the driver. You can use the same ticket for bus, metro and train.

Taxis are also an option. The ride from Langeliniekaj to the city centre is around DKK 200. From Oceankaj to the city center it is around DKK 275.

You can walk from Langelinje Quay and Nordre Toldbod to Østerport Station in 15 minutes or to city centre in 30 minutes.
