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.

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.

The Danes who are involved in the travel industry are likely to speak impeccable English and in many cases German too.
