Live Jazz in the Canals
Enjoy live jazz every Thursday and Sunday throughout the summer aboard our canal tour. We set sail from Ved Stranden at 17:00, with the Jazz Cruise lasting approximately 75 minutes.
During the Copenhagen Jazz Festival from July 5th to July 14th, we offer two daily departures, at 15:15 and 17:00. Read more about the Copenhagen Jazz Festival on their website.
Normally, we sail in closed boats; however, on sunny days, we switch to open boats and release extra tickets on the same day.
You're welcome to bring your own beverages aboard or select from a variety of options at Brobaren, conveniently situated on the pier where our boats depart.
