This is a nice aquarium on a windswept bit of coast near Copenhagen airport. It's a short walk from Kastrup station, only one stop from the airport and it's divided into 3 very manageable sections. It has all the usual things you would expect from...More

Nice place and nice with the feeding shows. Nice with free bus ride back to central station (but not so often). But avoid the restaurant, there are places to have light food nearby. Tang is not good, slow and expensive and totally without service feeling...More

This acquarium has all the national and exotic fish of the trade, with a few poisonous frogs and even otters thrown in for good measure. Do not expect dolphins, seals or penguins, as emphasis is on the national marine fauna in Denmark - But do...More

Yes it does. You can also get there by metro for free (if you have a Copenhagen Card, which also gives you free admission to Den Bla Planet) for a bit of travel variety, It's an enjoyable trip.
