A cultural bridge between South and North

The direct airline route from Copenhagen provides a unique opportunity for travelers to visit Marseille outside the traditional summer season, from April onwards. Northern travelers will once again be able to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle and its wonderful and mild climate, experience new sustainable offers such as electric bike tours, guided tours or even hybrid boat tours. They will also be able to indulge in new gourmet restaurant addresses that are labelled “Ecotable”, stay in one of the 30 “Green Key” hotels, explore new cultural sites such as the MAC (Comtempory Art Museum) or the Citadelle of Saint Nicolas Fort, reopened after being closed off to the public for 230 years !

Discover the many treasures of France’s oldest district: the Panier. A stroll along the Old Port amidst the fish market, or a walk up the hill to the Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica and its panoramic view – these are just a first few ideas of things to do to add to your list for your next visits.

Marseille also has it’s own and unique offers, including hikes in the hills where the famous writer, Marcel Pagnol used to live, graffiti-filled neighborhoods, old soap workshops located in the suburbs that are still in production, visits to unique neighborhoods and their local craftsmen, and of course the breathtaking scenery of the Calanques National Park, which is a must-see outside of the summer season.

How often?

Volotea airline offers a Marseille/Copenhagen direct route, which operates three times a week as of April 21, 2024.
In addition to this, Transavia airline is launching a Marseille/Stockholm route, scheduled twice a week from June 6, 2024 through to September 15, 2024.

These new connections allow travelers to discover Marseille and Provence, boosting it’s general appeal to Northern customers. Marseille promises a memorable getaway, a unique combination of cultural, historical and picturesque landscapes along the Mediterranean coast.
