To and from the airport
The Copenhagen Metro runs to and from Copenhagen Airport. The metro is the fastest and cheapest way of getting from the airport to the City, Frederiksberg and Vanløse.
The metro station is in Terminal 3, at the very end. On arrival you need to go past the airline check-in counters (SAS, Lufthansa, etc.) and up the escalators. Terminal 2 is a short walk away. With departures to and from the airport as often as every four minutes, you don’t need to plan anything in advance. The trip from the airport to the City takes just fourteen minutes.
Metro or train?
The metro is the fastest way of getting to and from Copenhagen City or Frederiksberg. However, if you want to go to Copenhagen Central Station or the western part of Copenhagen City, you are better off taking the train. The regular train is also operating from terminal 3, and you can check the best route to your destination by using the Journey Planner, see the link below.
You can purchase tickets for public transport from the metro ticket machines located in all metro stations, including the airport. You can also buy tickets from the ticket counter in Terminal 3.
The tickets are valid for the metro, the trains and the buses in greater Copenhagen - you need a three zone ticket from the airport to the city center or a City Pass.
