Getting To and Around Copenhagen

The public transport infrastructure of Copenhagen is among the most efficient and reliable in the world, consistently being developed and improved to ensure reliability and ease. 

The airport itself, Kastrup, is the largest in Scandinavia and has prided itself on being carbon neutral since 2019. Located only eight kilometres (km) from the city centre, the regional train or metro will transport you from the airport to the centre of Copenhagen within 15 minutes. 

Once in the centre, there are a myriad of public transportation options to choose from, with one of the most iconic being the bicycle. 

Copenhagen has earned the title of the “best bike city in the world” for reasons evident as soon as you enter the city limits. With approximately 382km of bicycle lanes, it comes as no surprise that the number of bikes far outweighs the number of cars within the city. 

Convenient, quick, and sustainable, these bikes can be rented from local shops, hotels, and even from the street. Truly a cyclist’s paradise, this form of transportation has been ingrained in the culture of Copenhagen. Just be sure to avoid angry looks from residents by making certain you follow local cycling rules! 

Besides the popular bicycle, the city offers a clean and timely metro, S-train, and buses (including water buses), all of which can be accessed with the same ticket. The Harbour Bus will allow you a panoramic view of the city from the water and has been running on green electricity since 2020. 

Don’t forget to take advantage of the pedestrian-focused atmosphere, put on some comfortable shoes, and walk nearly anywhere. You’ll find shops and pathways only accessible by foot and create unparalleled memories with the adventures you find.
