Get a quick guide to the metro and how to ride it.

In the coming weeks, Denmark is hosting the Ice Hockey World Championship for the first time. The Copenhagen Metro is prepared and excited to bring thousands of hockey fans from the City Centre to the Royal Arena.

How to get to the venue

In order to get from the City Centre to the Royal Arena, you must take the green line - M1 bound for ‘Vestamager’. Get off at ‘Ørestad’ and follow the signs to the arena and the fan zone nearby. It’s a 5 to 10 minute walk. (There's a shortcut but Google Maps doesn't know it).

If you’re new to the city, you might need some assistance on how to navigate the metro system, so below we have gathered a few helpful tips.

Don’t get on the train without a ticket

You can neither buy nor validate your ticket inside the metro trains. You can buy tickets from the ticket vending machines on all stations. Single trip tickets are valid from the time of purchase and do not need to be validated. This means, you cannot buy a stack of single trip tickets to be used at a later time. Instead, you can buy a citypass or one of our other ticket products.

The metro runs 24/7

The Copenhagen Metro is a fully automated system with two lines, M1 and M2. The system operates all hours with very frequent departures. This means, that you don’t need a schedule or timetable – the next train will arrive in 2 to 6 minutes during the day depending on your position on the line and the time of day.

The metro is an open system – no turnstiles

Although the Copenhagen Metro is fully automated and both trains and stations are unmanned, you may encounter Metro customer service personnel in trains and stations. They are there to help you and answer any questions as well as to inspect tickets and direct passenger flows. You are required to follow the instructions of such Metro Stewards.
