Tickets can be purchased from ticket offices, from vending machines at stations or from bus drivers. The tickets are stamped with time, date and departure zone. You pay for the number of zones you need but the minimum fare is for two zones and the maximum is for 9 (all zones).

If you stay for a longer period, you can buy a 'Clip card' which consists of 10 tickets.


Copenhagen is famous for its many bikes and large number of bike lanes. There are plenty of places to rent bikes. Ask your hotel.

In addition to rental bikes, the Municipality of Copenhagen has made a number of city bikes available in the city. You pay a deposit of DKK 20 to borrow a bike. The use of the free city bikes is limited to the city bike zone in central Copenhagen. There are bike-racks in central places of the city.
