The easiest/fastest option is to take the metro from the airport. The Copenhagen Metro has four lines M1, M2, M3 and M4. It’s an easy ride of only 13 minutes to Kongens Nytorv. Here you can change to metro line M3. It’s a line with 17 stops around the city, all connected by the metro, forming a circle. One trip around the circle takes 28 minutes, and even if you are “going in the wrong direction” you’ll end up at your destination in a short time.

All three metro lines are in service 24/7. There are 2-4 minutes between each train during rush hour, and 3-6 minutes outside rush hour and during the weekends. Friday and Saturday night (after 01:00) trains arrive with a 7-15 minutes interval and a 20 minutes interval after midnight on weekdays (Sunday through Thursday).

When using public transportation in Copenhagen, all passengers must have a valid ticket. You can read more about the various ticket types and their prices here. There is ongoing ticket control, and both Copenhageners and tourists are responsible for having the correct tickets. If you are travelling without a valid ticket there is a penalty fine of 750 DKK (Approximately USD $105, EUR 100) 


The trains depart every 10 minutes from the airport to Copenhagen Central Station during the day. In evening hours it will be approximately every 20 minutes, and during the night just once an hour. To get to the central station by train will take around15 minutes. At Copenhagen Central Station you will find connections to the rest of the country by train, S-train or bus.

The S-trains are a hybrid urban-suburban rail serving the Copenhagen urban area, except Amager.

The S-trains run between 05:00 in the morning and 00:30 at night. Line F runs every 4-5 minutes, line A, B, C and E run every 10 minutes, and line H and Bx run every 20 minutes.

On Friday and Saturday the trains run once an hour between 01:00 and 05:00. However, line F runs every half hour during these hours.


From the airport you can travel to Copenhagen Central Station by bus as well. You’ll go by bus 5c and it takes around 35 minutes. The bus stop is just outside of Terminal 3. There are several bus lines running between Copenhagen city center and Copenhagen Airport. Find your exact journey at

The A-buses are the primary buses in central Copenhagen. They drive every 3-7 minutes during rush hour (which is between 07:00-09:00 in the morning and 15:30-17:30 in the afternoon) and usually about every 10 minutes before and after rush hour. The A-buses serve at all hours.

The S-buses drive every 5-10 minutes during rush hour and every 20 minutes outside of rush hour. The S-buses are faster than the A-busses due to fewer stops. They usually serve between 06:00 in the morning and 01:00 at night.

Night buses are in service between 01:00 and 05:00 in the night. You can recognize the bus stops by the grey color of the bus stop signs. The night buses are all N buses, for an example 85N.


Just outside both Terminal 1 and 3 you’ll find taxies. It will take around 20-30 minutes to get to the city center by taxi, and cost around 250-350 DKK, depending on the traffic. Many hotels in Copenhagen cooperates with the taxi companies offering fixed prices to the airport. This can be an advantage for you if you are taking a taxi within rush-hours.
