Single ticket, a City Pass or something else? Find the right ticket!
The metro, bus and train services have a fully integrated ticket system in the Greater Copenhagen area. When you buy a ticket for the metro you can use it on the buses and trains as well. And you can bring along two children under 12 years on your adult ticket free of charge.
You can purchase single tickets, ten trip cards and City Passes from the metro ticket machines located in all Metro stations, including the station at the airport. The machines accept Danish coins and all major credit cards. Alternatively you can purchase tickets online or from the train ticket outlets.
Single tickets and ten trip cards
A 2-zone single ticket costs DKK 24 while a 2-zone ten trip card costs DKK 150. A 3-zone single ticket costs DKK 36 while a 3-zone ten trip card costs DKK 200. You need three zones from the airport to the city center.
NB: Ten trip cards will no longer be available for purchase from February 8th 2015.
