Move by metro
The Copenhagen Metro runs throughout the capital city area 24/7. In 2019, a new route will open that connects the city centre even better.

Take the train
Trains have routes through all of Copenhagen’s neighbourhoods, to the airport and across the country. Excursions within and beyond the city – to destinations such as Roskilde, Elsinore or the Swedish city of Malmoe – are easily accessible from the central station.

Cruise by cycle
Explore the city the local way - via 400km of bike lanes. Copenhageners love to bike and, with 100 city bike locations and many opportunities to rent, procuring a bicycle is easy. 

Try a taxi
Taxis are easy to hail on the street and most accept all major credit cards. All taxis are clearly licensed and operate at fixed mileage rates.

Walk and wander
Thanks to ample pavement, street crossings, pedestrian zones and its compact size, Copenhagen is easy to tour by foot and safe to walk around in both day and night. The bikeable and walkable city invites you closer to a sustainable stay. So, do make sure to bring your walking shoes.
