Public Transportation in Denmark

Denmark is a small country and the public transport is easy to use and efficient. There is even a journey planner website, which is great fun to use. There are regular train services between Copenhagen and towns across Denmark and southern Sweden. You can buy train tickets and find the times with DSB (Denmark’s National rail Company) by calling +45 70 13 14 15 or going to their website where there is a useful little tutorial about using the Danish booking system.

Public transportation in Denmark consists not only of trains and buses, but being an island nation it has thousands of ferry routes between the islands and between Denmark and other countries.


There are many different bus operators, so prices and styles differ. Mostly you can buy tickets from the driver or ticket machines at the stop, so it is best to bring cash with you. Trains and buses tend to provide an integrated service.
