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. Ticket for the museum is not needed to visit the café.

Access to ARKEN CAFÉ is free.

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.
