By bus: The main hub for buses arriving in Copenhagen is Central Station. Services run from here to all over Europe, with bus company Eurolines operating most of the services.

Getting Around:

On foot: Copenhagen's a flat city, so it’s ideal for walking around. A lot of the main attractions are within walking distance of each other and the city centre. As well as this, many of the major shopping streets are pedestrianised.

By S-Train: The S-Train runs on 10 lines at regular intervals. All the trains on the network pass through Central Station. Day tickets and multiple journey ticket are available.

By Metro: The Metro runs on 2 lines and services operate daily from 5am-12pm, with services running through the night on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Single tickets cost 20 DKK with multi-ride passes available for 125 DKK.

By bus: A frequent bus service connects the city centre with all parts of the city, the suburbs and beyond.

By bike: As a result of its flat roads and well-marked cycling routes, Copenhagen is a great place to cycle around. Bicycles are incredibly popular with the locals. While in the city, you could try and pick up one of the public city bikes. These are available for a 20 DKK deposit from April to September.
