Copenhagen is Denmark’s capital city. Although it has a population of just under one million, the city is filled with commercial and cultural activity. The visitors it draws annually go to experience the city’s attractions, and also to travel across the Oresund Bridge, which connects the country to Sweden. The two main train stations are Copenhagen Central, and Norreport Station. Local train networks include the Copenhagen S-Train and the Copenhagen Metro. Bus networks are also available.
Copenhagen Central Station is the city’s main train station. Located on Bernstorffsgade near the Tivoli Gardens, it has other entrances at Banegardspladsen, Reventlowsgade and Tietgensgade.
Copenhagen Central Station is a hub for the DSB rail network, Denmark’s largest state railway. The network offers links to other Danish and international cities. DB (Deutsche Bundesbahn) runs several trains daily from Cologne in Germany to Copenhagen Central. The journey is over 400 miles and takes between 9 and 14 hours, depending on the number of changes required. All trains stop at Hamburg, and other changes can occur at Hanover, Neumunster, Flensburg and Fredericia in Denmark, before arriving in Copenhagen. Trains from London St. Pancras arrive daily in Cologne, and tickets for these routes can be purchased from the Omio website.
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.
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.
