I recommend getting the Copenhagen Card only if you plan to see many attractions and travel a lot by public transport, otherwise, as it is quite expensive, you will not recoup its cost. As regards usability, we had a great time, just download the app from the QR code and enter the code provided at the time of purchase, then the card's validity period will start from the first use. All conveniently from your smartphone, choosing the QR code for attractions or transport in the app. Copenhagen has an efficient control service on public transport, so mobile phone in hand!😉

Really easy to use and good value if you want to go to multiple places on multiple days. Just scan the QR at the attractions you want to use it at (everywhere I went to was ready straight away to take it and knew what it was). Transport was really frequent and reliable. Just show to the authorities when asked.

We were able to make great use of the Copenhagen Card. Almost all of the attractions we visited were included. It's not cheap, but it's definitely worth it if you plan to visit several museums, etc. We particularly enjoyed the canal tour.

wasn't the cards fault I liked to walk so didn't use transport as much as I could have. Things close do due to coronation which was out of Copenhagen cards control

Great card. Quite reasonable price. Was used 100%. Required purchase
