Copenhagen Card is Always Digital

The COPENHAGEN CARD is 100% digital and works through our app 'Copenhagen Card City Guide', which can be downloaded for free via App Store or Google Play

It works offline, so you don't have to worry about international data. You only need internet to activate your card.

The time starts when you activate your card. Please note that all cards will be activated at the same time, if you bought them in one order.

The card can be bought via our website or directly in the app. Regardless, you will receive a digital card that can be use in the app.
