  • Airport - Transportation to Copenhagen...

    Copenhagen Transportation

    Whether you take the train or Metro from the airport is likely to depend on where your accommodation is based. My hotel was just a couple of minutes' walk from Copenhagen's main station so the train was the obvious choice. Trains are very frequent indeed and ticket machines very easy to use, with English language options. They take cards and cash...

  • Free bikes

    Copenhagen Transportation

    I have read somewhere that almost half of the Copenhageners (including me in the summer) use their bike to and from work or school every day. And biking is also a great way for tourists to explore the city. Copenhagen is not the biggest city in the world, and it is quite easy to get around in the inner city of Copenhagen. There are bicycle lanes...

  • Public transport - general

    Copenhagen Transportation

    While you can buy single tickets on the metro, s-trains and buses, if you will be making several journeys it makes a lot more sense to by a multi-trip ticket called a klippekort. Each klippekort is valid for 10 journeys and you have to choose how many zones you're likely to be travelling through (there are 9 zones in total) - for example if you...

  • Metro

    Copenhagen Transportation

    The Copenhagen Metro is a relatively new metro as it opened a little more than ten years ago. The metro lines go from Vanløse to either Vestamager or Copenhagen Airport and new metro lines are still under construction. Even though the metro doesn't go far into the suburbs like the ones in London, Paris and New York, it is an experience riding with...

  • Train

    Copenhagen Transportation

    The Copenhagen S-trains are red trains, that go from the city centre into the suburbs and neighbouring cities. The S-trains are the best possible way to get into the suburbs even though I as a Copenhagen inhabitant don't think that they always drive as they should. There is Wi-Fi connection in the S-trains which make the trip from Hillerød to Køge...

  • To Sweden

    Copenhagen Transportation

    Taking about 35 minutes, and running at up to three times an hour, the new Oresund train makes a day trip to Sweden a very simple proposition. Ticket information can be a little hard to come by, but it's about 12 euros each way. Tickets are much cheaper if you travel in a group - the family duo card is less than the price of two tickets, and is...

  • Bicycle

    Copenhagen Transportation

    Our hotel (the Saga) had rental bikes, and biking is a good way to get around Copenhagen. I don't know how much the ones at the hotel cost, but there is a place near the RR station and their prices are One day 95 DKK Add one day +45 DKK One week 365 DKK Add one day +30 DKK Lights, basket or helmet per day 10 DKK Also there are bike tours of the...

The problem was obvious to me as soon as I stepped out of the Arrivals door (directly underneath the stairs and...

    I really think a CANAL CRUISE IS A MUST DO in Copenhagen We went on the first one of the day which wasn't very full at all. This was great! We grabbed a seat and sat back and listened to the information on Copenhagen presented by our hostess. She was very informative and was pleased to answer questions. We did a lot of walking in Copenhagen and...

  • Bus..

    Copenhagen Transportation

    This is really a "From" tip as I've never arrived in Copenhagen by bus and have only once caught the Eurolines bus from the city - in that instance to Hamburg. However if you are on a budget and don't mind spending the time sitting in a bus then Eurolines operate several services to and from Copenhagen. Destinations (start points) include Berlin,...

When we got to the port, the driver could see the long lines and one of his “friends” said something to him. He pulled over and told us to walk the rest of the way “it was only 5 minute walk.” We told him to go on we were paying...

    The bicycle rickshaws have hit the streets big time in recent years in Copenhagen and they are all over the center of the city and it´s a fun way to get transported around when you are there as a visitor as you have a perfect view of the street and can talk to the rickshaw driver and hear about the places you are passing.

  • Driving

    Copenhagen Transportation

    There are so many places out of the center of Copenhagen that it would be worth renting a car for a few day trips. Two day trips I'd recommend, Dragor and Kronborg are worth a visit. Along the way there are wonderful landscapes and other lovely towns to explore. Danish public transportation is impressive and most likely will take you to any...

  • Walking

    Copenhagen Transportation

    Copenhagen is an ideal city for walking. All of the historic sights are clustered closely around the city center. Sidewalks are plentiful and in good condition, and there is nowhere better for pedestrians than the Stroget. In fact, we walked everywhere we went within the city. The longest distances are only about 3 km: from Christianshavn to...

    The biggest and most luxurious ferry I've ever been on--not that I've been on many. From Sweden to Jutland it took four hours, long enough for a wonderful meal in the huge dining room. I ordered Plaice--a delicious fish that I've never had before, potatoes and red peppers and a salad. There was no rush in the elegant dinning room and the service...

And with an ISIC card you can avail another DKr. 130 student discout each way (except...

  • Getting around Legoland

    Legoland is a BIG park, so besides walking around (and you will do this a lot) you can take the train or the monorail. The train takes you basically throughout the whole park, and I think you should take it before you start exploring - so that you get a taste of what's coming. The train has some lego bits like shapes and it's a winner among the...

    Sandormen, or the sand worm, will take you from the kiosk to Grenen, where you can see Kattegat and Skagerrak (read my separate tip about it). It rides every 15 minutes and you can get off at their stop close to the ocean and walk around, etc. and go back with the next sand worm.
