Travelling from the airport
Copenhagen airport (CPH)
The Copenhagen airport has excellent facilities including many duty-free shops and refreshment outlets. There are several airport information and transfer desks, and service centres located throughout the airport. The two transfer centres are in Terminal 3 and can handle re-bookings, missed flights and cancellations. The service information areas are in the transit hall and terminals 2 and 3, both situated next to security check-in. These information desks can handle enquiries regarding airport services, flight information and much more.
There are several options to get from the airport to Copenhagen city centre:
Copenhagen airport train station
There is a modern train station located at the end of Terminal 3 directly over from arrivals.
If you want to go to central stations like Kongens Nytorv or Nørreport, you should get on the metro. The metro is at the end and above terminal 3.
All the trains go in the same direction from the airport (M2 to Vanløse Station), so you do not have to worry about getting on the wrong train. Tickets can be bought at the metro station and at the DSB ticket sales counter in terminal 3. Please note that the machines only accept coins and all major credit cards, not notes.
Bus 5C will take you directly to Copenhagen Central Station, Town Hall Square, Nørreport and other stations. It takes about 30-35 minutes from the airport to the Central Station.
Taxis can pick up passengers outside terminal 1 and 3 and will get you to downtown Copenhagen in about 20 minutes depending on traffic. It will cost approximately DKK 250-300. (approx. £30-£35)
You have a choice of tickets for the metro, bus and train services, which are integrated in the entire Greater Copenhagen area, where a metro ticket is valid on the buses and trains as well.
Always buy a ticket before boarding the train or metro. You can buy your ticket in ticket machines, which accept Danish cash and the most common credit cards, or 7 Eleven kiosks at the train and metro stations. In Copenhagen airport arrival hall and at Copenhagen Central Station there is a DSB ticket office as well as ticket machines. Please note that not all ticket types/travel cards are for sale via machines.
Always have your ticket with you in case a conductor wants to see it. Travelling without a valid ticket will result in a fine of up to DKK 750.
The City Pass gives you unlimited access to buses, trains, metro and harbour buses in zones 1 – 4, which includes the centre of Copenhagen and to and from the airport. The City Pass is valid for 24, 48, 72 or 120 hours. You can buy your City Pass at the ticket vending machine at all stations and at the airport.
