There are plenty of escape rooms in Copenhagen, and below I’ve compiled an overview of the best – so it’s easy to choose where to go for your next hen party, stag night or just a fun thing to do in Copenhagen.

Escape rooms are trendy in Copenhagen and are undoubtedly here to stay. It’s a fun, interactive game where your group has to solve a series of tasks that depend on the theme.

In some cases, you are detectives a la Sherlock Holmes; in other cases, you are investigators. In some games, it’s a crime scene you’re participating in; in others, it is a true horror.

Here are the best escape rooms in Copenhagen.

All rooms on this list are available in English.

1. The Ritual – Occult Mystery Room 👻

At Mystery Makers, who were the first to create escape rooms in Copenhagen way back in 2014, we find several exciting mystery rooms.

Mystery Makers has won several awards for their escape rooms, so you are always in safe hands here in Copenhagen City Centre, close to Østerport Station, where an incredible experience awaits – regardless of which room you book.

The Ritual is one of their most popular rooms. The idea of the game is that you get a look inside the doors of a secret lodge located at one of Copenhagen’s finest addresses.

However, you and your fellow players quickly discover that the lodge is conducting an evil ritual, and now you have 1 hour to interrupt the ritual and escape from the room!

The whole experience, with an introduction, takes 1.5 hours and is recommended for everyone over 12, so if you are looking for an escape room with more minor children, there are better rooms in Copenhagen than The Ritual.

You can be nine people, but you can also book for up to 18 people, where you are then divided into two different rooms and have to compete to break out the fastest.

See more about The Ritual and book the experience here.

2. The Killing Room 🤯

The following escape room is also with the experts from Mystery Makers and is somewhat more dramatic!

The Killing Room is an escape room in Copenhagen that is a journey into the twisted world of a serial killer and where you must cooperate in the best possible way to break out of the room before 1 hour has passed.

You start by being split into two groups that must work together to find each other to escape the serial mother’s game.

It’s a good escape room for companies that need to learn to work together, but also a fun experience for family and friends who want to try a different experience that shakes things up.

Again, this is a room for those over 12 years old, you can be 6-15 participants, and the experience takes 1.5 hours.

3. The Lab – most popular escape room in Copenhagen👩🏻‍🔬

If you want to try The Lab escape room in Copenhagen, you have to be there in good time – it is the most popular escape room at Mystery Makers, so it often sells out.

It is a mystery room where you can be up to 36 people per game, but only if you are more than nine people; you are divided into several rooms.

The Lab is a classic escape room, where you come across a long series of challenging puzzles and cryptic tasks in a laboratory that must be solved in 1 hour.

The Lab is available for kids from 7 years, as long as adults accompany them, so this escape room can easily be played by (most) of the family.
