Travel in Denmark

Denmark consists of the peninsula of Jutland and an archipelago of 433 named islands. All 72 inhabited Danish islands are connected by ferryboat service or bridge. The two largest and most densely populated islands are Zealand and Funen. Denmark has two mega-bridges – one connecting Funen and Sealand (the Great Belt Bridge) and one connecting Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö (the Öresund Bridge). Both are among Europe’s biggest. Bridges also connect other Danish islands, including the bridge between Jutland and Funen (the Little Belt Bridge).

The Danish motorway network now covers 1,111 km and the railway network totals 2,667 km of track. You can travel to most cities by train, bus, or ferry. Copenhagen has one of the world’s most efficient metro systems – a fully-automated system operating 24/7. Denmark has several international airports, the largest of which are Copenhagen and Billund. There are also domestic flights between Copenhagen and the cities of Aalborg, Aarhus and Rønne.
