Fishing Copenhagen

Fishing tales from Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark

Guided trips for cod and flatfish in Copenhagen Harbour 

Join our guides Anders and Frederik when we go chasing cod and flounder in Copenhagen Harbour. This is a perfect way to experience some parts of Copenhagen with a local fishing guide and hopefully bring a fish or two home for dinner.

Where will you be fishing?
We will take you fishing in Copenhagen Harbour on a spot we choose depending on our knowledge about where the fishing is best on the given day. The chosen spot will always be maximum 5 kilometers from the center of the city and we will inform you at least 2-3 days in advance where we will meet.

When can you book a trip?
We are available for fishing every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 17.00 to 21.00 in these periods:

18. February – 7. June
9. September – 6. December

If you contact us very shortly before you want to go, we can´t guarantee that we are available, but we will do all we can to make space for a trip with you.

Other periods

Outside of these periods we also do combined walking and fishing trips in the harbour if requested well in advance.

What species will you be fishing for?
In the harbour you will primarily fish for cod and flatfish based on what is best on the date you´ve chosen. As for cod you can catch them up to 3 kg in the harbour and you can catch flatfish up to 800 grams. There are no guarantees of fish but the chances are big. However we guarantee that you will have a great time, enjoy a cup of coffee and a beer, and learn all you need to know to get success with the harbour fishing for yourself.

What do you need to bring for a guided fishing trip wih us?
You don´t need to bring anything as the prices (below) includes rental of gear. Not all gear is fitted for successful harbour fishing, so we prefer to bring all gear ourselves that you have the best chances of a catch. But if you have your own rod and reel and prefer to use it, we will give you a 50 DKK discount pr. person. If this is the case please let us know in advance.

What is the price for a hour trip from 17.00-21.00?
1 person: 850 DKK
2 persons: 1400 DKK
3 persons: 1900 DKK


Full or half day weekend trips
If requested we sometimes do full or half day weekend trips. Please contact us at to check if we are available on a specific weekend date.

Good to know

We advice everyone fishing in Denmark to buy the obligatory national fishing license. If you don´t have the license you can risk getting fined by the national authorities.
