Transport in Denmark is developed and modern. The motorway network now covers 1,111 km while the railway network totals 2,667 km of operational track. Bridges across the Great Belt and the Øresund have done much to improve traffic flow across the country and between Denmark and Sweden. The airports of Copenhagen and Billund provide a variety of domestic and international connections while ferries provide services to Germany, Sweden, Norway and the UK as well as routes to the Danish islands.

The fare system is based on 95 zones covering the capital area. Tickets are transferable from one means of transport to another within a time limit. The more zones a ticket is valid for, the longer its time validity with a maximum of two hours. Discount cards (Rejeskort) and period cards are available. Ticket prices are high and have increased substantially in recent years leading to a decrease in passenger numbers. In fact, the percentage of trips made on public transportation in Copenhagen is quite low by northern European standards.

Airports: Copenhagen Airport is the principal airport serving Copenhagen. It is the largest in Scandinavia and the 17th largest in Europe. It is located in Kastrup on the island of Amager and has very efficient connections to downtown Copenhagen with metro trains going to Kongens Nytorv in 15 minutes with 4-6 minutes between departures and regional trains going to the Central Station in 12 minutes. Its location also makes it the most important international airport for large parts of southern Sweden. Over the Øresund Bridge trains go to Malmo South in 14 minutes or Malmo Central Station in 22 minutes. Copenhagen Airport has won the award as “The best airport in Europe” four times, and as “The best airport in the world” two times. Copenhagen Airport is the seventh best airport in the world – second best in Europe – when you ask the passengers. The British organization Skytrax is doing so every year, writes the airport in a press release. 40 criteria are employed for the ranking

Bus Lines: There are over 400 Bus-lines in Copenhagen to serve the citizens and the tourist that visit the capital of Denmark. The two main Bus-terminals in Copenhagen is at the Town Hall Square and at the Central Station – where the most popular and busy public busses transport customers in and around Copenhagen every day and all year round.

Danish and international trains: Copenhagen Central Station provides Copenhagen with Intercity and Express trains across Denmark, as well as services to several international destinations. The train traffic to Hamburg is especially heavy, and other distant destinations can also be reached by daily international trains. Trains to southern and western Sweden depart every 20 minutes.
