Copenhagen ferry port in Denmark connects you with Oslo in Norway with a choice of up to 7 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Copenhagen to Oslo crossing is from 17 hours 15 minutes and the crossing is operated by DFDS Seaways.
The Danish capital of Copenhagen is found on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand, a large landmass connected to both Denmark and Sweden by a series of spectacular bridges that span the chilly waters of the Oresund Strait. Established by the Vikings in the 10th century, the city has evolved into a sprawling, modern metropolis that often scores highly in quality of life surveys.
Though Copenhagen has become a powerhouse of European economy in recent years, it has managed to retain its reputation as an environmentally friendly city with plenty of green parks and open-spaces found between the lattice of streets. The cityscape is separated into neighbourhoods that possess their own unique character, from the medieval architecture of the inner city to the ornately carved 18th Century mansions found in the area of Frederiksstaden.
The port of Copenhagen is found in the north-eastern district of Indre By, its maze of docks and quays completely surrounding the mouth of the canal that flows through the heart of the city and into the Oresund Strait. The ferry terminal here is a building of modern design that sits on a small pier opposite the long Langelinie quay.
The port can be reached via the O2 highway that completely encircles the downtown district of the city. Buses regularly run along this route, stopping at various locations throughout Copenhagen including to a station directly outside the entrance of the harbour. The Nordhavn train station can be found nearby too. From here passengers can travel to and from all corners of the city or further into the towns that sit on the outskirts.
Currently one passenger service operates from the port in Copenhagen. A DFDS Seaways line makes the lengthy trip up the Kattegat Strait to Oslo in the south of Norway. It’s a north-bound route that traces the ragged coast of Sweden before entering the extensive Skagerrak region of the Baltic Sea.
