Biking

Denmark is world famous for its biking culture. Danes love biking – to work, to school and even on summer holidays around the country.

Copenhagen was in 2017 named ‘Best city for cyclists’ and the ‘World’s most livable city’. Copenhagen offers a variety of favorable biking conditions — dense urban proximities, short distances and flat terrain — along with an extensive and well-designed system of bike lanes. Biking is generally perceived as a healthier, environmentally friendly, cheaper and often a quicker way around town than by public transport or car.

Denmark is biking heaven for cyclists!

Drivers license

If your driver’s license is issued in an EU Country, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland or the Faro Islands, no conversion is necessary unless you are holder of a driver’s license without a limited administrative validity period of 15 years. This means that if no “valid to” is stated on your driver’s license, license must be converted to a Danish license.

Some countries outside the EU are added to the list of countries who’s citizens do not need to swap driver’s license. The list of countries can be found on following link from borger.dk. The list is continuously updated and valid for the whole country.

Citizens could be tempted to wait for their home country to be included on the list. This is, however, no option. The rule will not apply for citizens already living in Denmark. Only newcomers.

Please ask your Settwell counsellor for detailed information on changing driver's licenses.

Electric scooters

Electric scooters are a new and environmentally friendly way of exploring Copenhagen. 

Download the app from VOI or TIER, register yourself and wupti you are good to go. 
The app will have details about available scooters near you.

Parking

Parking restrictions apply in most towns and cities in Denmark. Parking restrictions are strictly enforced but parking regulations are clearly indicated.

Sometimes free parking is available with time restrictions indicated on parking signs (hours written in black or white refer to workdays, hours in brackets refer to Saturday and hours in red refer to Sunday and holidays). In areas with restricted parking, a parking disc is required to show the time of arrival.

Private car parks also operate in various towns and cities. Private car parks have their own parking rules and fees.

General parking rules include:

  • Stopping is only allowed in the right side of the street and is prohibited on main roads and motorways
  • Parking is prohibited at full-drawn center lines where the distance between the line and the car is less than three meters
  • Parking is prohibited less than five meters from a pedestrian crossing or end of a cycle path and less than 10 meters from an intersection
  • Parking is prohibited on cycle paths and pedestrian crossings
  • Parking is prohibited at bus stops where painted yellow or within 12 meters of a bus stop sign

Public transportation

Denmark has an elaborate public transportation system.

The public transportation system covers both trains, metro and buses. Areas are split into zones and price depends on how many zones you pass. There are different ticket options depending on how often and how far you travel.

Costs
Public transport uses a common pricing and zoning system. The cost of your journey depends on how many zones you pass, what type of ticket you hold and what time of the day you travel. You can either buy zone tickets and pay for each zone you travel through or you can use the electronic Rejsekort (Travel pass), which automatically reads the zones you pass through. Payment is automatically deducted from the Rejsekort. You can top up your Rejsekort both online and on stations. A Rejsekort can be purchased in Copenhagen Airport (arrival hall), at major stations or electronically by ordering a Rejsekort once you have obtained your NemID.

You can transfer freely between buses, trains and Metro on the same ticket or card, provided that you do so within the time and zones of which your ticket is valid (usually 1-2 hours). Travelling by train or Metro your ticket must be purchased before the start of your journey.

Travel passes
If commuting regularly, it is recommended to buy a travel pass (Rejsekort) covering both trains, buses, Metro and harbor buses in all zones. Every time you begin a journey or change means of transport, you must check in at a card-reader in the bus or on the station. You only need to check out when reaching your final destination. The different types of passes can be compared here to see which type meets your needs.

If you travel on a regular basis to <-> from work and occasionally need to add other zones, the Rejsekort Commuter will be the best and most economical solution for you. The commuter Rejsekort can be bought online or at Copenhagen Central Station.

Commuter pass (APP)
If you only commute by public transportation to <-> from work, the best and most economical solution is to buy a monthly commuter pass via the app DSB pendlerkort

Once you have downloaded the app, please follow these steps:

  • Type your Danish mobile number and date of birth
  • Your will now receive a four digit code on your smartphone
  • Please type the number given to access the app
  • Choose the zones you will need for your commute
  • Click zones on the map or type the address from home -> to work
  • Type start and end date for your commuter pass and the app will calculate the cost Minimum period is 30 days
  • Confirm and accept terms and conditions
  • Please type in your credit/debit card details (Foreign credit accepted)

Your pass is valid from the date you have chosen. Do not forget to extend the travel pass before it expires.

A commuter pass is valid for all the means of public transportation offered in the zones you have chosen. You will only be required to show your pass upon request from a ticket inspector, or when you board a bus.

Single and multiple tickets
Always buy your ticket before boarding the train or Metro. You can buy your single trip at ticket vending machines, which accept Danish coins and most common credit cards, or at major 7-Eleven kiosks at the train and Metro stations. Otherwise buy your ticket via the apps DSB or DOT. On busses, a single journey ticket can be bought on board using Danish coins or using the apps above.

Furthermore tickets can be purchased via a text message on your mobile phone. Text location and the number of zones you will pass to the number 1415. A few seconds later, you will receive a confirmation message to which you need to reply “JA”. Again, a few seconds later your will receive the actual ticket. Do not delete text message until end of journey.
