Non-European travellers in Denmark can take advantage of the Eurail Denmark Pass, for cheap train travel in and around Denmark. Eurail also offers a Europe-wide Eurail pass which includes travel in Denmark. If you are a European citizen, you can use the InterRail Denmark Pass instead, for cheap rail travel round Denmark, or the InterRail Pass around Europe.
If you prefer travelling by coach, or want to explore more remote areas of Denmark, the country has an extensive network of long-distance bus routes. These are operated by different companies and not all of them have English-language websites, so it’s a good idea to contact the tourist office of the destination you have in mind, to ask for their guidance on routes and tickets.
