Copenhagen is a fascinating city to visit, with plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets and travel plans. Copenhagen, despite being the capital of Denmark, manages to retain an intimate feel, and is easy to explore on foot, or by public transport.
Copenhagen sits on the shores of the Oresund Strait, making a cultural and geographic bridge between Scandinavia and mainland Europe. Visitors to the city centre will discover brash new architecture, sitting beside fairy-tale evidence of its past, as well as plenty of culture, nightlife and high-end shopping and dining.
Chain hotels, offering comfortable accommodation of guaranteed quality, can be found near the Copenhagen central train station and around the city’s suburbs.
If you’re able to stretch your budget a little further, then the streets between the station and the city centre, have some reasonably priced hotels and more luxurious 5 star Copenhagen properties, giving you rooms with TVs, Wi-Fi and en-suite facilities. As you get nearer the city centre and the Tivoli area, prices start to rise, but look out for cheap out of season deals.
An alternative option, which gives you a more authentic taste of city life in Denmark is to browse for apartments in the station district.
These give particularly good value for money if you are travelling with a group, and especially if you want to save on restaurant bills. With apartments you have total freedom and flexibility to set your own itinerary and timetable, without having to worry about meal times, or other restrictions.
Once you have settled into your apartment, or other accommodation, head out to see the sights of Copenhagen, starting with the Danish National Gallery, moving onto Copenhagen Zoo and finishing with a relaxing boat trip, or exciting visit to Copenhagen’s two amusement parks, the famous Tivoli Gardens and the less well-known Bakken Park.
From the train station area you can easily get to Parken Stadium by metro or train.
Copenhagen Central Station (Danish: Københavns Hovedbanegård, København H is the largest train station in Denmark, placed in Copenhagen, with entrances to Bernstorffsgade (at Tivoli Gardens), Banegårdspladsen, Reventlowsgade and access to platforms from Tietgensgade. (If including the metro, then the Nørreport Station has more passengers stepping on and off)
The station is served by InterCity and regional trains as well as S-trains. It has 12 tracks. On the station concourse, there are small shops and fast food outlets. It is situated in fare zone 1.
From Kobenhavn H you can reach the Bella Convention Center and nearby hotels in about 10 minutes.
The first station in Copenhagen, constructed in wood, was built way back in 1847 outside the city’s fortifications, but railway development soon outstripped its size, and it was rebuilt on its present site in the late 19th century.
The present concourse, designed by architect Heinrich Wenck, was opened in 1911, with seven platforms, supported by ticket offices, bathrooms with showers, luggage lockers, shops, cafes and fast food restaurants.
Trains arrive at the station from across Denmark, as well as from international cities, such as Stockholm in Sweden, Hamburg city centre and from Berlin Hbf in Germany.
The station is located at Bernstorffsgade, København 1577.
Time zone — GMT + 1 (GMT + 2 from last Sunday in March to last Sunday in October)

Unlike much of Europe, Denmark has not adopted the Euro currency, however you will find many shops will still accept it as payment as long as you don’t mind any change being given in Danish Krone.
Language — The official language of Denmark is Danish although the majority of Danes do speak some English. The Danish people have long been used to learning and speaking other languages and are usually happy to do so.
The Danes who are involved in the travel industry are likely to speak impeccable English and in many cases German too.
