Easy mail/card exchange done at the airport. Very interesting map that allows you to move freely. It offers the possibility of seeing many things that we would not necessarily have seen. In addition, paid on the site in euros, it saves commission costs which can increase the already substantial budget for a trip to Copenhagen.

It was fun to explore Copenhagen easily with the pass! In 48 hours we had visited 3 museums, climbed 3 lookout towers and explored 2 castles, taken a boat trip and visited the Tivoli Gardens. And that quickly and easily thanks to public transport included! Great Card!

I bought the card for 3 days, we visited so many place that maybe we wouldn't visit. I recommend to download the app of the card so you can choose your favourite place to visit and it gives you also directions with maps.

this card is absolutely perfect, if you want to use the trains, metros etc. to visit all parts of Copenhagen!

The card is scanned without any problems and you can enter immediately. Recommended
