The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is popular among tourists. The city has decided to cater to those who choose to visit it sustainably.

Danish Copenhagen is a popular tourist destination and one of Europe's most expensive cities. The city has decided to ease the financial burden for tourists who choose to visit sustainably. It introduced the CopenPay programme, and participation is elementary—just make climate-friendly choices during your holiday in Denmark's capital.

CopenPay for sustainable tourism in Copenhagen

Tourists can earn discounts on popular attractions and complimentary coffee, meals, and ice cream. These rewards can be claimed by picking up litter, volunteering in a city garden, cycling instead of driving around the city and committing to other sustainable ecological behaviours.

Twenty-four city attractions, including the Copenhagen Museum, have signed up to participate in the programme. Here, you can get a free cup of coffee to purchased admission ticket if you arrive at the museum on foot, by bike, or used public transport. Upon entry, take a photo of your "green action" and show it to the reception staff. You’ll receive a coffee voucher that can be used the same day at the famous museum café.

At GreenKayak, you can rent a kayak for free in exchange for helping keep the harbour clean. While paddling, simply collect any waste you see on the water and share your experiences on social media.

For free food and drinks, BaneGaarden offers an organic meal if you collect litter and help protect Danish nature. You can also claim free ice cream at the National Museum or a complimentary cold drink at the Level Six Rooftop Bar and Terrace. The promotion includes beer, wine, or a soft drink, which you can enjoy while admiring the stunning views from the terrace. CopenPay is available for tourists until 11 August.
