The Copenhagen Card, sometimes abbreviated as CPHCARD, is the premier smart card tourist pass for the Danish capital. It’s good for 24 or 72 hours and includes free admission to 60 different attractions plus unlimited rides on public transportation. Children’s cards are available for kids ages 10 to 15. Kids under 10 are free with the purchase of an adult card.
The card includes discounts on shopping, dining, and tours as well, and the more you see, the more you’ll save. The transportation option is good for all trams and busses within the city and surrounding towns.
Some of the top attractions and biggest savings available with the Copenhagen Card include the Danmarks Akvarium (normally 100.00 Danish kroner, about $18.15), the Copenhagen Zoo (140.00kr), Land of Legends with its 10,000 of living Danish history (110.00kr), and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (95.00).

The card includes all public transportation, including to and from the airport. Many other cards exclude airport trains from their tourist transportation passes.

What Could get better?
The Copenhagen Card doesn’t include any hop-on-hop-off bus tours.
There are no line-skipping privileges included with the card.
Get Your Money’s Worth
The day trip to Elsinore (the castle in which Hamlet is set) is a great value, as train travel is included. However, it will be difficult to fit many other activities in on that day.
As with all cards, you’ll have to look at your itinerary to make sure you’ll get the most out of the card. If you’re planning a trip to the zoo or Tivoli, which can be long outings, it may be cheaper to pay individual admission than use a 24-hour Copenhagen Card.
If you want the Copenhagen Card shipped to you, you’ll have to order online at least 10 days before your trip. A shipping and handling fee is added.

Where to Buy It
The card is available at many outlets. You can buy it at Expedia, Orbitz or Travelocity or you can buy it once you get to Copenhagen but these are not great options as you may pay more. The best place the buy the card is at the Viator website. Viator guarantees the lowest prices, no-fee cancelling, no-fee date changes, 24/7 customer care, and airline miles (with a minimum spend).
