At Copenhagen International Airport, there are three lounges for Priority Pass passengers, and I can honestly say that this is the best one of the three. Heck, I would even say that this is the best lounge in the entire airport and depending on what you’re looking for, some would even say this lounge is better than what SAS provides for their premium cabin passengers and frequent flyers. But unfortunately, due to its location in the non-Schengen zone, this lounge isn’t available to everyone transiting through Copenhagen, which helps keep the crowds to a minimum.
The Eventyr Lounge at Copenhagen Airport is located in the non-Schengen area of terminal 3 and is only available to passengers departing from this area. You can’t cross passport control just to visit the lounge and then come back through to the Schengen zone. For those departing for the United States or other non-Schengen zone destinations such as Dubai, Qatar, you can find the entrance to the lounge adjacent to gate C26. Just follow the signs and take the elevator up to the third floor.
The lounge is open from 7:30 AM to 8:00 PM daily. In addition to Lounge Club, Lounge Key and Priority Pass members, the Eventyr Lounge is also the contract lounge for other airlines such as British Airways, Emirates, Qatar and Norwegian Air Shuttle.
The lounge is one large open room with plenty of comfortable seating and great views of the ramp and runway outside. There are some couches located in the center of the room and dining tables located along the windows. The lounge is bright and airy and there are plenty of spaces to sit with others or by yourself. There are no dedicated day rooms or other places to lie down but I guess you could just sleep on the couch if you wanted to. It’s not very private though.
I really liked these raised platform seating areas. The wood paneling doesn’t do much for privacy but it does give the space a sense of coziness if you’re just relaxing with another person.
There are plenty of dining and work tables located throughout the lounge and there’s easy access to European electrical outlets by most of the seating areas. Password-protected WiFi is provided for all guests.
But the best part of the lounge is the panoramic view of the ramp and runway.
Showers are available if you’re connecting from a long-haul flight or need to freshen up after a long day exploring Copenhagen but it does cost 5 Euros for a towel and travel-size bottles of shampoo/conditioner and body lotion. This is kinda cheesy but I guess it does cut down on their waste as people will be more inclined to not use something if they have to pay a marginal fee for it.
But that’s the only thing you will have to pay for as food and drinks, even alcoholic drinks, are provided complimentary. For breakfast, there was a limited hot offering of scrambled eggs, beans and cold-cut deli meats but for lunch, there was a much nicer selection with rice, beef stew and a very hearty chicken curry soup.
And for drinks, there was a good selection of beers on tap, self-serve spirits and wine, sodas and an espresso machine.
Eventyr Lounge at Copenhagen Bottom Line
Overall, the Eventyr Lounge at Copenhagen is great for a contract lounge. The lounge offers a nice offering of food and drinks, plenty of comfortable seating and panoramic views of the ramp and runway. And because it’s intended for very specific passengers, it doesn’t really get crowded either.
