Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and acts as a cultural and geographic link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia. Copenhagen is a modern metropolis with excellent shopping, culture and nightlife opportunities, yet still small enough that it's easy to navigate and retains a cosy community feel.
Copenhagen is beautiful all year round. The winter is atmospheric and snowy, and during the summer the city becomes perfect for being outdoors all day with many parks. The cheapest time to go is usually between february and April.
It takes just over 10 minutes by mainline train to get from Kastrup (Københavns Lufthavn, Kastrup Station) to the Central Station (Hovedbanegården, abbreviated København H) in the city centre. You can also take the metro to or from central Copenhagen with trains leaving very regularly during the day. Copenhagen Airport is located in zone 4, which means that metro, trains and buses all require a 3 zone ticket to get to or from inner Copenhagen, and this costs 36 Kr for a single. Bus number 5A also connects the airport to Copenhagen’s Central Station and the city centre. Taxis are usually waiting outside each terminal and take around 20 minutes into downtown Copenhagen.
In Copenhagen the trains, Metro and buses can be used with the same ticket.
Discovering Copenhagen is really best on two wheels. Copenhageners are avid cyclists, and the city is infamously cycle-friendly, making it an important means of transport and a dominating feature of the cityscape. Copenhagen's considered one of the world's greatest pedestrian cities. It's blessed with narrow medieval streets but the city has also worked to improve the quality of its street life, for example by turning one of the main streets into a pedestrian thoroughfare. Sizewise, Copenhagen is just about perfect to discover on foot.
Copenhagen Central Station is located right in the centre of the city, bordering the trendy district of Vesterbro. It is the main and the largest railway station in Denmark, and it serves as a gateway to all public transportation in and out and around Copenhagen. The station is also a main hub for rail provider DSB. Though the station is not connected to the Copenhagen Metro network, all S-train services except the F-line stop at the station. Tickets for the metro and S-trains are purchased on the platform or in the train terminal, while bus tickets can be purchased on the bus.
