Copenhagen is the ideal turnaround port; it is conveniently located in the Baltic Sea with a well-connected international airport, flexible turnaround facilities at Ocean Quay, and an established network of local partners, which collaborate to offer a memorable experience for your guests. Copenhagen has plenty to offer for a pre & post-stay. The Danish capital is large enough for every kind of life philosophy but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists, makers and the green grass, the mothers, babies, and their strollers, the hipsters and their dreams, the prince and the queen. The Copenhageners excel in combining simple and sustainable solutions with a casually sophisticated lifestyle. A lifestyle based on tradition, history, and culture, yet constantly moving forward, giving Copenhagen a unique blend between the harmonies of old-world charm and the progressive beat of a truly cosmopolitan city.
