Two competing companies offer 60-minute boat tours around the city, narrated in English, Danish, German, and occasionally other languages. It’s a great, relaxing way to get a quick overview of Copenhagen, along with the city’s history. Check the website for timings.
DFDS’s cruises cost twice the price and cover the same basic route as Netto Bådene. DFDS does, however, sometimes have more experienced guides. On Wednesday evenings in the summer, DFDS also offers a two-hour jazz cruise through the city – no information on the sights, but a live band entertains you as you cruise around Copenhagen.
