How to travel around Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a small town with a big city vibe. The town is compact and most of the popular attractions are within walking or biking distance from each other. Many of the downtown streets are pedestrian-only zones.

Biking

Biking is a popular way to get around in Copenhagen. Bycyklen (The City Bike), the city’s official bike share program features over 2,000 intelligent electric bikes at over 100 Bycyklen stations. If you opt for a Pay as You Go plan, for 30 kr an hour you can enjoy unlimited usage of all Bycyklen stations in the city.

Public transportation

Copenhagen’s public transportation system includes buses, trains, the subway system (Metro), and a commuter light-rail system (S-Tog). Most buses leave from the Rådhuspladsen (City Hall square) in the middle of the city. The Metro lines run east-west and operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Trains arrive every 2 – 3 minutes during rush hour, and every 15 minutes at night. The S-Tog connects Central Station to the city suburbs. You can transfer from a bus or Metro line to an S-Tog line. Fares start from 24 kr for all modes of public transport. If you plan to use the public transport extensively, consider purchasing a City Pass that offers unlimited travel on all modes for the duration of the card. An adult pass costs 80 kr for 24 hours and 200 kr for 72 hours.

Taxis

Taxis are easily available and can be hailed directly from the street. However, they are not the most economical mode of travel and are best used for shorter distances. Fares typically start at 50 kr, followed by 10.15 kr per kilometer, and a waiting time of 7.00 kr per minute.

Boats

Boats are an interesting way to explore Copenhagen. Canal Tours offers hour-long guided excursions around the harbor and canals. You can also use the blue and yellow water buses to enjoy the city sights from the water. Water bus #991 and #992 offer some of the most interesting routes and sights. Fares for the water bus are the same as for all other public transport.
