Getting Around Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a great walking city with most of its wondrous sights within a square mile of its center. A good place to begin a city tour is Town Hall Square; the Tivoli Gardens are across the street and just north of Tivoli is Rauspladsen, the central city square and the main terminal for the local bus network. To the east is the city's waterfront, including the canal district of Christianshavn.

There are more than 1,700 government-licensed taxis that service Copenhagen, and most accept credit cards for trips of any length. Just make sure you tell the driver at the onset of your journey that you'll be using a card. You can hail taxis easily enough and most drivers speak English. The first drop is approximately 23 DKK and 10 DKK per 1/2 mi/1 km thereafter on weekdays from 6am - 4pm The first drop alwayss remains the same, but from 4pm - 6am, the per mi/km fare increases to 11 DKK. On Fridays and Saturdays, between 11pm and 7am as well as all day on holidays, the per mi/km fare increases yet again to 13 DKK. Drivers round up to the next krone, but no other tip is necessary. We recommend that you only ride in metered taxis.

From the main cruise facility at Langelinie Pier, bus #26, which runs every 20 minutes, will take you to the city center. A waterbus near the polar bear statue at the end of the pier can also get you to the center of the city (a one-day ticket lets you get on and off all day). Taxis are plentiful for the 10-minute ride in. If you've disembarked at Freeport Terminal, shuttle buses are generally close by -- as are taxis.

Copenhagen Airport is six miles (9 km) from the city's center. Shuttle buses are generally available to cruise ships, but contact your cruise line for more information. If you arrive at Terminal 3, there are trains every 20 minutes to town. A taxi to Langelinie Pier takes about 25 minutes and costs about 225 DKK. There's also a direct SAS bus running from the airport to Central Station. A local bus service (#250S) connects the airport with Rauspladsen and Central Station, but takes 35 minutes.

You can transfer from all methods of public transportation -- bus, train, metro -- with the same ticket. A basic ticket (grundbillet) is 15 DDK and allows for an hour of travel with unlimited transfers within the zone where you started your trip. You can buy a pack of 10 for 90 DKK. Kids under the age of 11 ride for half fare (those under four ride free on the trains; the cut-off is six on the buses). For more information, call 70-10-00-10.

The 24/7 Metro, which operates virtually every two minutes during rush hour (every 15 minutes in the evening), runs from Vanlose (in the west) to Vestmager (in the south). To transfer to the S-tog system, you must change at Norreport. For more information, visit www.dsb.dk.

Copenhagen has 1,300 free "City Bikes" that anyone can use within central Copenhagen between May 1 and December 15 by inserting a 20 DKK coin (get it back when you return it to any one of 125 City Bike Parking places) into the bike's locking mechanism. There are plenty of these hard-to-miss bright red or blue bikes by the Langelinie Pier, but not the Freeport Terminal. Pick up a City Bike Map from any Copenhagen Information Center (there's one next to Langelinie Pier, one on Bernstorffsgade and one at Tivoli's main entrance) and ask about three easy-pedal tours.

Car rental companies like Avis, Hertz and Danecars/National have offices in the city as well as at the airport. Check their Web sites for exact locations and prices. The cost of parking weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. is determined by zones (red, green and blue) and each has its own pricing. The farther away, the cheaper (the red zone is 20 DKK per hour, the green zone is 12 DKK and the blue zone is 7 DKK). Other times are free. Parking away from the city center is free for up to 2 hours. Tickets are purchased from coin-operated meters at the parking areas.

For travelers debarking (or embarking) here, Copenhagen has one of the most convenient rail services between downtown's main terminal (Kobenhavn) and the airport. The ride takes about 15 minutes. For travelers with a day to kill before flying, the rail station offers baggage storage.
