Copenhagen- travel card and getting around

It really is not the easiest to understanding how the travelling works in Copenhagen.

There are various methods to get around:

S-Train

Metro

Buses

Bicycle

Taxi

Car rentals

Note- there is no Uber here. Otherwise a favourite of mine- obviously where the city caters for it.

To get from the airport to the city or elsewhere I would recommend taking the Metro. This is very easy to find and it’ll take you 20 minutes more or less to get into the city: Nรธrreport or Kongens Nytorv.

I would recommend buying the travel card from the station at the airport. This will cost DKK 80 (at the time of writing this!) You can preload this as well with an amount. Note that it is possible to add passengers to your trip- you just need to find the right check in machine and add number of passengers to this.

Another advice is to check in every time you change mode of transport- for example from the Metro to the S-train- only check out when you’ve completed the journey!

Also if you happen to have a CPR number (danish personal number) I would advice to get a Pendlerkort- you can download this App on your iPhone (I’d imagine an Android too).

This is from my personal experience thus far spending time in Copenhagen. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or stories you’d like to share on the best way to get around a city? I imagine it depends how long you are staying for and so on. I also know there are other ways to buy mode of transport in Copenhagen in conjunction with attractions- but I need to research that first before I can recommend further. So for now- I would recommend a travel card or to download the App if you can!
