The Port’s multi-storey car park with walkway across Nørre Havnegade

Bitten & Mads Clausen’s Foundation has bought the port's multi-storey car park (P-hus) through the company BMC Ejendomme, and has reached an agreement with APCOA PARKING concerning the operations and administration. It will take effect from January 22nd, 2020.

When the acquisition was announced, it was stated that a new payment system will be introduced from January 2020. However, as in Borgen, the first two hours will be free, after which a charge of 12 DKK will be made per hour. It is important in the future to use a parking disc. The timer on the disk will show when the car was parked.

Facts about APCOA

APCOA was founded in Denmark in 1995 and is part of APCOA PARKING, Europe's largest parking company. It is represented in 13 countries and administers 9,000 car parks in Europe. APCOA manages 1,500 car parks in Denmark, including multi-storey and underground car parks in Axel Towers and Carlsberg Byen in Copenhagen, Lyngby Storcenter, Odense P and Salling in Aalborg. APCOA has collaboration agreements with Tivoli and BroBizz, among others. Read more at

Payment for parking can be done either through a payment app on the phone or at one of the ticket machines on site. The machines are located at the two entrances/exits and in the walkway. It is possible to stop your parking ahead of time. If, for example, you have paid in advance for four hours – of which the first two are free – and only need to park for three hours, you can easily stop your parking charge and thus not pay for the fourth hour. If you pay for parking through the app, it is also possible to extend your parking electronically.

BMC Ejendomme wants to make the Port's P-hus a place where everyone can park safely at all times of the day. Therefore, it has been decided to install video surveillance in the building, and guards will patrol around the clock.

The second and third floors in the multi-storey car park will be reserved for overnight guests at Alsik. From the second floor, you can walk along the public bridge over Nørre Havnegade.
