Where is locate the Port of Copenhagen

Copenhagen offers two large port facilities. The first, more widely visited by ships making day calls, is **Langelinie Pier** about 2.4 km from the centre of the city. This is a charming harbour area, with a series of shops and cafes, just a 10 minute walk from the city (taxis are also available). The Copenhagen Information Centre is located here and can also offer exchange office (and distributor) services. On the other hand, the **Freeport terminal**, about 3.2 km from the city, is frequently used by ships for which Copenhagen is a port of embarkation or disembarkation. There is no service or ATM nearby (although taxis often take credit cards). The nearest train to reach the city is a 15-20 minute walk. As this port is busy, taxis are sometimes scarce. It's best to plan your trips before you leave or take advantage of your cruise line transfer services. You can also book a [private transfer](
