Getting to Denmark

Getting to Denmark is simple. The capital, Copenhagen, has worldwide air links, and some carriers fly into regional airports around the small nation. Train, road and bridge links exist to Germany and Sweden, and there are ferry connections to/from several countries.

Once you get to Denmark, transport stays hassle-free. Most journeys by train, car or bus are so short you can reach regional destinations before your next meal.

Getting around Denmark

Transport in Denmark is reasonably priced, quick and efficient. Your best friend is the journey-planning website www.rejseplanen.dk (download the Rejseplanen app). The www.visitcopenhagen.com website also has comprehensive information about modes of transport and how to buy tickets.

Train Reasonably priced, with extensive coverage of the country and frequent departures.

Car Denmark is perfect for touring by car, which can be hired in larger towns. Drive on the right.

Bike Extensive bike paths link towns throughout the country. Bikes can be hired in every town.
