Get around Denmark on a budget

Travel Denmark on the cheap
Getting around Denmark does not have to be expensive. If you walk or cycle you can do it for free, but there are also other options available.

Travel around for free

If you walk or bike, you can eliminate transport costs almost entirely, and Denmark is very well-suited for both pedestrians and cyclists. Denmark has a vast network of walking and cycling routes that offer a easy and very safe way to get around. The short relative distances in Denmark mean that you’re never far away from the next supermarket or lodgings. If you are to cross the Great Belt (“Storebælt”) or the Øresund Bridge you will need to buy a bus or train ticket, as you’re not allowed to use those bridges on foot or by bicycle.

City bikes in Denmark

Free-to-use city bikes are currently being offered in Frederikshavn, AalborgAarhus and other cities. The Copenhagen city bike is a great way to see Denmark's capital city but it costs 25kr per hour.

Cheap train travel in Denmark

You can save a lot of money when travelling by train in Denmark. Especially when crossing the Great Belt, which entitle you to buy so-called “Orange billetter” on selected departures. There are other forms of discounted tickets available, including the senior tickets with up to 50% off and tickets for young people. Kids under 12 years old travel for free with an adult. Consult Danish Railways DSB's site for more information on cheap train tickets.
