Transportation in Copenhagen
Scandinavia's biggest city, Copenhagen is not difficult to get around and the majority sights are accessible by public transport. Most of Copenhagen's sights are lying within a relatively compact area either side of the harbour, and the city's efficient bus, metro and local train network makes access to them easy.Highlights on the virtual island of the city centre (Copenhagen K) district include the best of the museums and galleries, the Christiansborg government complex and royal Amalienborg Palace. To the north, find the fairytale Little Mermaid statue, and to the east experience an alternative lifestyle at Christiania.
Make the most of Copenhagen's extensive and reliable S-tog network, whose trains criss-cross the city and serve the suburbs from the coast to the north. Regional trains link the city with the airport and with nearby Malmö across the spectacular Øresund bridge in neighbouring Sweden.
If at leisure, take the harbour bus to see the Little Mermaid and the historic harbourside of Nyhavn. Elsewhere in the city, Copenhagen's modern bus fleet serves all major places of interest, and services are available through the night for revellers finding their way home after a clubbing session.
Modern, safe and frequent metro trains link the centre and Christianshavn island with the airport and Ørestad to the south, and the Fredriksberg district to the west. The central city area and business district is within a single fare zone, and money-saving passes are interchangeable on buses and S-tog trains.
Explore the best of Copenhagen's compact old center and shopping areas on foot – several major streets are pedestrianized.
The CPH Card offers visitors unlimited travel by train, bus and metro in the Greater Copenhagen region, and is accessible for either 24,48, 72 or 120 hours. An added bonus is that it also includes free entry to 79 museums and other attractions in the city. It is available online, at the airport, and at tourist information offices. Single travel tickets are sold at stations and on buses, and are interchangeable between transport modes.
