Admission fees and prices

Walking around the Aquarium with a pram/stroller is difficult, but we do have one umbrella stroller and 2 baby carriers (3.5-12 kg), which you may borrow free of charge. Ask for them in the ticket office.

You are welcome to hang your overcoats on the racks in the basement. This is also generally where we store bags and rucksacks when a children’s institution on an outing pays a visit. 

Food and drink
Next to the ticket office there is a coffee vending machine and a small café table where you are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Unfortunately, we generally do not allow food to be consumed here, but when the weather is good you are welcome to use the tables and benches outside the Aquarium. You cannot purchase food directly at the Øresund Aquarium, but at the Nordhavnen marina you can purchase food 3-4 different places, for example at the fish shop (fish cakes, sandwiches, etc.), the chandlers store (sandwiches, etc.), the grill bar (sausages, burgers, etc.) and at restaurant Kronborg Havbad (high-quality dining).

Visitors are not permitted to bring animals/pets to the Øresund Aquarium. Guide dogs are an exception. Dog leash hooks are available outside.

Accessibility for the disabled
Øresund Aquarium offers good accessibility for disabled people. There is a disabled stair lift and a spacious disabled-friendly toilet. Disabled persons pay regular admission fees. Those accompanying disabled persons enjoy free admission provided they present a valid ‘companion card’ (please call if you have questions). Not applicable to guided boat tours.

There are around 100 parking lots by the Øresund Aquarium.
