Is it possible to reserve a pedal boat in advance?
No, it is first come, first served.
Can I get off at the Zoo?
Yes, but it requires that you have bought a ticket to Odense ZOO. You can also onboard at the ZOO and pay for the trip directly to the captain or get off at Munke Mose and pay in the kiosk. Please notice that it is not allowed to bring a dog into the ZOO.
Are dogs allowed?
Yes, if you believe that it will be okay with sailing and being around a lot of people. Please notice: you are not allowed to bring a dog into the ZOO.
For how long is my ticket valid?
The ticket is valid for one entire tour with the boat. Munke Mose -> ZOO -> Fruens Bøge and return – and not necessarily in that order. You can get off and on along the trip.
The ticket is valid the day it was bought.
Are there any student or senior discount?
No, we have two kind of tickets; a child ticket and an adult ticket. Otherwise you can buy an annual pass.
Elementary schools sail at a special price – see more under prices.
Can I onboard at Fruens Bøge without a ticket?
Yes, either buy a ticket directly from the captain, or buy it in the kiosk when you arrive in Munke Mose. It is also possible to pay in cash or with MobilePay on board.
Can I get on the tour boat with a wheelchair?
Only manual wheelchairs can get on the boat. It is two steps down into the boat. There are no possibility for a ramp, so it will take bare hands to help you down the two steps, in order for you to get in the boat. We will carry the wheelchair down afterwards.
Walkers are allowed to be brought on board.
Can I bring my own drinks and food on board the tour boats?
Yes, but not during tours where we sell drinks (eg. ‘Music on the River’). It must not be to the annoyance of the other passengers. Therefore, we recommend that you order drinks in advance at our kiosk, so you do not have to worry about it. It will be packed and ready before sailing.
Is smoking allowed on board the tour boats?
No, it is not allowed to smoke on board the tour boats. However, if you book a private tour boat, you decide whether smoking on board is allowed or not.
When is it necessary to buy a ticket in advance ?
It is a good idea to buy the ticket in advance online during the high season – and if you are more than 10 people.

If it is not sold out before departure, then we will be selling the rest of the tickets on our ticket sale on the day – based on first come, first served principle.
Where can I park my car?
There is a car park right next to Aafarten – See the map of the area here.
Parking by Aafarten’s kiosk is a good idea as the tour boats begins and ends in Munke Mose. By the Aafart’s kiosk, you can find rows of parking options for cars. Odense C offers a lot of options for parking, however, most of them require payment or are only for a limited time. Our recommendation is for you to park at the parking house ‘Filosoffen’, which is close to Odense Aafart. Our guests receive a discount for parking in Filosoffen’s parking house by booking.
You can take the free Citybus, which stops almost at Aafarten. Get off at Søndergade/Vestergade or Holsdore. The bus drives approx. every 10 minutes: Monday-Friday 9-16.30 and Saturday 11-15.30.
During festivals and major events, e.g., in August and September, there may be alternative routes. Therefore, keep an eye on the timetable here.
