Entrance is free to the café, where you can enjoy delicious meals, maritime architecture and a stunning sea view.


ARKEN CAFÉ hangs like a lifeboat on the side of ARKEN. Inside the café, the wide wooden floorboards are reminiscent of a ship’s deck. The maritime ambiance is completed with a stunning view of Strandparken and Køge Bay.

The food on the menu is carefully selected. Several ingredients are organic and produced in Denmark, such as the “Stone Age bread”, Danish mineral water and organic wine.
