I am trying to figure out my options for getting from Aarhus to Copenhagen. I will travel in mid-September 2013. My questions:
When will the train schedule become available - I was unable to find train information.
Is Valby Station in Copenhagen or outside Copenhagen?
Other than cost differences, is flying a good option?
If I take the train do I have to make a reservation in advance?
If I take the bus do I have to make a reservation in advance?
If I take the bus do I have to transfer to another bus and if so where?
Any info/advice will be appreciated.
Is the Marguerit route signposted? Is it only a bycicle road or is it also allowed for cars?
I would like to cycle some parts of it around Aarhus in June. Is that feasable?
Thanks for your feedback
We've looked into hiring a camper van, but it seems really expensive in Denmark!
Has anyone got any tips for finding a cheaper option?
I want to share with the community the photos of my trip to Denmark in may 2013

I visited: Copenhagen
I want to point out the major tourist attractions:
- Nyhavn ( street symbol of the city with many pubs and restaurants and the departure point for boat tours in the canals )
- Rosenborg Castle
- Round Tower
- Christiansborg Palace ( inside: the Parliament the Supreme Court the Government Offices the bedrooms of the former royal apartments ) and ruins under Christiansborg
- Kastellet is an old military fortification with park inside it and a windmill
- Amalienborg Palace is the royal residence
- Tivoli Gardens ( Beautiful park with many restaurants and funfair )
- Stock Exchange
- City Hall
- Royal Libr...
Is there much to do on a Sunday night in Copenhagen in late August? I was going to take the train to Stockholm the following morning, but if there isn't much to do I'll take a Sunday evening train instead.
I'm planning to take the ferry round midnoon at June 28 from Rodbyhavn to Puttgarden. It will be 2 passengers and a car.
Is it recommended/required to book this in advance or can I just show up at the Rodby terminal and buy my ticket there?
Or is there a price difference between an advance purchase or buying it locally?
Thanks for your advice.
I am going to be spending a day in Copenhagen next month enroute from the U.S. to Russia. Normally, when I spend only a short amount of time in a city, I try to get by without exchanging any money and just using my credit card. That brings me to the point of this post:
How widespread is credit card usage in Copenhagen? Do most places such as trains between the airport and city center, entrance fee to places of interest such as Tivoli Gardens, restaurants, etc. accept credit cards? In other words if I am only there for one day, can I get by using a credit card only or will I be forced to exchange some of my USD for DKK?
If I do have to exchange money in CPH, does anyone know if I can exchange DKK for RUB in St. Petersburg, Russia? I am asking because that is my next destination and so it doesn't make sense to exchange leftover DKK back into USD - I will need RUB when I depart C... more »
I plan to spend 2-2,5 weeks in Copenhagen this July. I will stay in friend's home, but I wonder how much money should I take for food and activities.
I've heard there are tickets that you can use for majority of places of interest. I know it's pretty expensive and I am on tight budget.
I am taking my 82 year old mother to Copenhagen for an impromptu brief trip from this Sunday afternoon to Tues morning. I have just found out that Monday and Tuesday (19-20 May) are public holidays in Denmark. Can anyone tell me what this will mean for getting around and what's open? We hadn't yet planned anything in particular- just wanted to wander about, see some sights and explore the centre mainly, a canal trip perhaps since my mum can't walk too far but now worried there may not be anywhere to break up the walking or that attractions and cafes may be closed?
Also am I right thinking that the train to/from the airport will still be running?
Normally I'd be less worried but strange to be responsible for my mum and want it to be a fun trip for her as it was her choice of destination! Many thanks.
The Wikipedia articles on Visa Policy in the European Union and Visa requirements for United States nationals state that you can stay and extra 90 days in Denmark visa free on top of the visa free 90 days in the Schengen area. Both articles cite this page as their source. I can't find any other information on it. Does anyone know anything about this? Is this true?
Last year I visited Holland, Germany, CR, Austria, Swiss and Italy. This year I want to visit Scandinavian region except Iceland. Iceland is a special place, so I will be spending more days in it later.
My plan is Amsterdam - Hamburg - Copenhagen or Hirtshals - Stavanger - Oslo - Karlstad - Stockholm - Turku - Helsinki. At each place I will spend 2 / 3 days and move.
I checked website of eurolines but some bus connections like AMS - Hamburg, Hamburg - Hirtshals are not daily. I will to do Hirtshals - Stavanger, Stockholm - Turku journeys by boat.
So is my plan doable if using public transportations ? Do I need to book well in advance or just appear at departure point ? Budget is not a problem.
Thanx in advance.
I'm looking for somewhere to watch the Eurovision in Copenhagen. I have tickets to see the dress rehearsal in Malmo on the Friday night, but on the Saturday I plan to be in Copenhagen and I'd like to see the show (again!). Any recommendations gratefully received. I'd also love to hear about some great places to visit. I've been to Copenhagen once before, so I've seen some of the obvious places - the little mermaid, christiania... Now I'm looking for a chilled weekend enjoying some of the roads less travelled.
