Getting around in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is easily accesible. When you arrive at Copenhagen Airport, the Heart of Copenhagen City is only 13 minutes away. It is a compact city in which most of the hotels, restaurants, venues, sights and shops are within walking distance of each other.

Copenhagen has one of the world’s best transport infrastructures. It is safe and efficient guaranteeing minimal transfer time in and around the city. With multiple bus lines, Metro, the local S-train network and harbour busses, the city’s public transport is convenient and safe. For international conventions and events, you can buy discounted Travel Passes.

Copenhagen taxis are comfortable and clean. You can easily hail a taxi on the street, and most accept all major credit cards. If you want to rent a car, there are several international companies with offices in the city centre and at the airport.

If you prefer to experience the city "the Copenhagen way", then jump on a bicycle. The bicycle infrastructure is extensive and well-functioning with 400 kilometres of bicycle lanes. Most bike shops and hotels offer bike rental or you can grab a Gobike from a bike-sharing station near public transportation hubs.

Copenhagen is a true pedestrian paradise, and it is safe to walk around even at night. In fact, Copenhagen was voted “Most Walkable City” in 2013 (Walk21). Pavements, street crossings and pedestrian zones are extensive, which makes experiencing Copenhagen on foot extremely convenient. So, do make sure to bring your walking shoes.
