Organizing your trip
Means of transport recommended in town
All bigger cities and towns in Denmark have an excellent bus network of city and intercity buses.
Copenhagen is the only city in Denmark with a metro system. The metro offers connections to S-trains, which are electric trains connecting the city center with the suburbs of Copenhagen. The numerous S-trains just like the metro leave at frequent intervals and form the heart of the public transportation infrastructure of the city. Metro offers an extension to Copenhagen Airport ( reachable from the central station by a 12 minutes drive).
Means of transport recommended in the rest of the country
There are twelve civilian airports, plus the Copenhagen International Airport (Kastrup), which is a major international airport and serves as the Scandinavian hub for SAS (Scandinavian Airline System). Copenhagen Airport was voted the world's second best airport in 2003 by the international airline organization IATA and the “Best in Europe” in 2005.

Traveling by yourself
If you on the other hand wish to explore the country by yourself there are numerous possibilities of renting a car. Even though all the road signs are in Danish, it does not present tourists equipped with a road map with any difficulties of finding their way around in the country. You should however be alert since Denmark has a high volume of bicycle traffic - so keep an eye out for bicycles in intersections and roundabouts. Another interesting fact about Denmark is that the use of dipped headlights is compulsory at all hours.
