Public Transport in Denmark


Most people prefer to know a bit about the public transport system in the country they will be visiting before they arrive, and frankly, we would too. Therefore, we’ve come up with a guide to introduce you to the public transport system in Denmark.  After you have read the guide, we hope you’ll know just how to get around!

Although Denmark is a relatively small country, it is made of more than 400 islands, so a well-connected transport system is necessary to meet the demands of the Danes who travel to work and school each day. When Danes aren’t driving their cars or using their bicycles - which they do a lot - their primary means of transportation are buses, trains and metro. The transport system in Denmark is generally reliable, especially in larger cities such as Aarhus and Odense.  The metro has been award “Best Metro” and “Best Driverless Metro” at the 2010 Metrorail Congress in London.

What about tickets and prices? We would like to give you a straightforward answer, but tickets and prices vary depending on which part of the country you are in, so to answer the question, we will have to go into a bit more detail.
