Best Free Travel Apps for Denmark
We have listed some of the best apps currently available to accompany you on your journey to Denmark.
Keep in mind that most of these apps require an internet connection to function properly. We will let you know in each description if they don’t.
Rejseplanen (Windows, iPhone and Android):
This handy app will help you navigate public transport in Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark. You do need data or WiFi to use this app, so why not plan your trip while you enjoy breakfast at your favourite Danhostel or while sitting at a café? The app is especially helpful if you are going beyond Copenhagen city centre and perhaps venturing out to the rest of Denmark.
The app allows you to send your travel plan to your email once you have found it, but a screen shot of the plan works just as well. It can show you the price of the trip, then you can buy the ticket at the station or on the bus (note that bus drivers accept only cash and prefer coins or small bills).

CityMaps2Go (iPhone and Android):
Do you want to avoid the hassle of folding and unfolding city maps? Then CityMaps2Go may just be for you! CityMaps2Go is a free app that allows you to download a detailed map of Copenhagen (and most other large cities in the world). Once you get to your destination, use the map from your phone while offline – no money spent on roaming fees. The app includes an easy to use search function and allows you to search for restaurants and other places of interest whilst being offline. The places are ranked and reviewed by users of the app and reputable travel sites - meaning that you can steer away from any tourist traps.
If you don’t feel like going digital, pick up your free Copenhagen city map in your Danhostel reception area.
ART CPH (iPhones)
All the art in Copenhagen is just at your fingertips. While the booming art culture in Copenhagen makes the city more beautiful by the minute, it is also increasingly difficult to know where to start. However, by using this handy app, you’ll get access to exhibitions, galleries, museums as well as upcoming and current events within the city! The app is free but available only via iPhone or iPad.
CPH Airport (all platforms)
This is the official app of Copenhagen Airport. As you’d expect, this app gives you access to flight times, overview of shops as well as shop reviews. It can even guide you around the airport while showing you where you are and how far you have to walk in order to get where you want to go. It's a very neat app to have if you’ll be spending some time at Copenhagen Airport. The app is available on all platforms.
Spotted By Locals (Android and iPhone)
If you want to experience Copenhagen in an authentic fashion - as the locals do - download this app! Spotted By Locals was created by local residents and gives you access to a map with points of interests in more than 66 European cities. All you have to do is download the app on your Android or iOS device, select Copenhagen on the list of available cities and you’re good to go! What’s more, the app doesn’t need an active internet connection to work.
Danhostel App (Android and iPhone)
Be sure to download this app if you’ll be travelling around Denmark. With this app installed on your phone you’ll always know where to find a warm bed for the night, as it lists every Danhostel in the country. You are able to book a room while on the move and you can even get directions based on your current location. Be sure to check out our app, which is available free of charge on both Android and iOS devices.
