Our tips

Top tips to avoid crowds at Den Blå Planet

  • Choose a weekday for your visit: weekends are always busier.

  • Come either before the opening or later in the afternoon - late mornings and lunchtime are the peak times.

  • If you want to plan your visit in order to avoid crowds as much as possible - choose Monday evening : Den Blå Planet is open until 9 PM, and that’s when it’s the calmest.

  • The Aquarium regularly updates information about queues at the entrance: if you plan visiting it on a weekend, we advise you to check waiting times before your visit and postpone it for the next time if those seem too long.

  • We recommend you to buy your tickets online on the official website: not only you won’t need to queue to buy them in the ticket office and will be able to use the Fast track access, but they’re usually a bit cheaper than the tickets on place!

  • Avoid public holidays, peak season (July, August) and school holidays (especially Easter ones) for a better experience. Otherwise you may have to queue up to an hour, and it may be overcrowded inside.

  • If visiting with children, check the feeding times : kids will probably be interested to see piranhas or sea otters being fed!

  • There tend to be more visitors on a rainy or a cloudy day: prefer a sunny day for your visit for a quieter experience.

Practical information

  • There is a free cloakroom and lockers (the lockers available for a DKK 10 deposit).

  • Parking facilities are limited and can fill up quickly during the peak season.

  • If you bought your ticket online - it will be enough to show it on your smartphone at the entrance, no need to print it.

  • There is a ØST cafe inside the Aquarium.
