Explore Copenhagen by public transportation
Thanks to its excellent transportation system, making your way around Copenhagen is easy. Traveling by bus, train, metro or boat is cheap, convenient and enjoyable, making it the perfect way to get from place to place when visiting the Danish capital. When planning your trip, we recommend using the trip-planner Rejseplanen, which you can use to easily plan your journey both in Copenhagen and across Denmark.
Purchasing ticketsBefore you board public transport in Copenhagen it is important to have purchased a ticket. You can buy your tickets in ticket machines, which accept Danish cash and the most common credit cards, or 7 Eleven kiosks at the train and metro stations. Bus tickets can be purchased from the driver but will require you to bring cash, as they do not accept credit cards. Once you have purchased a ticket you may use this for the metro, bus, train and harbor bus. There are period tickets available and you can also buy tickets on separate apps.
Cards such as the Copenhagen Card offer free public transport, in addition to discounts and free admission to several attractions and museums. The CityPass is a 24 or 72-hour period ticket available, offering free public transportation at a pleasant price. Check out Visit Copenhagen’s guide to ticket prices for more information on pricing, apps and more.

Making your way by metro and busCopenhagen’s metro system consists of two lines; the M1 and M2. With 22 stations spread across the city this is one of the best ways to make your way around the capital. The metro runs 24/7, with departures every 3-6 minutes outside rush hour. After midnight on weekdays the metro departs every 20 minutes. On weekends, the metro arrives with a 7-15 minute interval after midnight.
There are more than 400 bus stops spread across the city, ensuring that you can get where ever you need to go with ease and comfort. A-buses are the primary buses in central Copenhagen, with departures every 10 minutes (every 3-7 minutes during peak hours in the morning and afternoon). The A-buses serve at all hours. S-buses service fewer stops than the A-buses and are faster. These however, only run from 06:00 to 01:00.

Our sleek, modern hotel will be the perfect base for your urban adventures, with bus stops and metro stations in close proximity.
