Why travel by train to Copenhagen?

Travelling by train to Copenhagen takes the passenger through a number of Europe’s most beautiful districts, from the lovely Rhineland through the enchanting Danish countryside. By taking the train, the passenger can relax, enjoy meals and even, sleep, while travelling.

Before you travel to Copenhagen by train - good to know!

Copenhagen is on the coast, which means that the visitor can enjoy seeing the city from water. Many boat trips begin at Nyhavn and sail the visitor past the statue of the Little Mermaid and the Christiansborg Palace. Canal trips are also available. Another joy is open-air dining in one of Copenhagen’s many food markets, such as Torvehallerne. And for sheer fun, you cannot beat the extraordinary and surreal Tivoli Gardens near the city centre. Frederiksstaden is Copenhagen’s historical district. In addition to the Amalienborg Palace and the Royal Danish Playhouse, visitors delight in seeing the Odd Fellows Mansion. Built in the late eighteenth century, this Rococo house is open to the public and includes a concert hall.

How to Get to Copenhagen by Train

Travelling to Copenhagen from the UK by train tends to involve two changes on the Eurostar from London St Pancras International. Managed by Network Rail, there are direct services to London St Pancras International from the cities of Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Sheffield. The underground station for St Pancras is King's Cross St Pancras. The first Eurostar destination after leaving St Pancras International is Brussels Midi. From here, InterCity-Express operate a service to Cologne Central in Germany. Trains to Copenhagen from Cologne usually run overnight and take just over 11 hours before arriving at Copenhagen Central. The station at Copenhagen is situated near the city centre and is within walking distance of most amenities. A regular bus service also operates from near the station.

Copenhagen

Exploring the city of Copenhagen is incredibly easy as it is relatively compact in size and much of the city is pedestrianised. As one of the world's leading bicycle-friendly cities, there is a bike rental shop on almost every street corner and, with a good selection of bike lanes, this is a great way of seeing the city. Perhaps the most iconic of its sights is the bronze statue of The Little Mermaid, which has stood as a tribute to the city's most famous resident, Hans Christian Anderson, for over 100 years. The Danish capital also boasts a broad selection of museums and galleries, including the National Museum, the country's largest collection of cultural history and archaeology, and the National Gallery.
