Flintholm Station is the biggest station on the transverse urban railway, Ringbanen (the Ring Railway). Flintholm Station has been designed by architects from both KHR Arkitekter and DSB (Danish State Railways). It is obvious that Flintholm is pure architecture with its elegant transparency, which, in spite of its great size, makes it easy to find your way around it. The visual structure is covered by a huge roof construction of 5,000 square meters in glass and steel, which is suspended in eight steel pillars. Flintholm is a true junction, where you take the Metro, S-train and busses, all around to the whole city of Copenhagen.
The Metro covers most of Copenhagen and it runs all the time and never shuts down. You can take it from Copenhagen Airport and ride it all the way out to Vanløse, at the outskirts of the city. It runs constantly so if you arrive at the airport in the middle of the night, it is easy to reach your destination in the city without having to hail a cab. Also, if you love the nightlife, it is not only during the weekends you get the comfort of the Metro but also on those long nights during the week. You can always trust the Metro to get you home safely!
The S-train is your connection to the rest of the Copenhagen Region and much of Sealand. With 84 stations, including 32 in the central areas of Copenhagen, you will easily get to experience many things outside the city. The S-train network has seven lines on six radial sections. The trains are heavily used by people going to and from work around Sealand. The hours of operation stretches from 5 am to about 12:30 am, so if you go out to a late movie or have dinner far away from home, the S-train is there to bring you back.
If you are going sightseeing in the inner city or in the bridge quarters, then you may not necessarily have to take public transportation. Why not try out one of the many rickshaws that ride around the city? Inspired by their Asian brothers, the Copenhagen rickshaws give you the bicycle experience of Copenhagen – without having to pedal yourself. The chauffeurs will gladly offer advice about the city and maybe for a little extra tip speed up a bit. The rickshaws have no regular taxi stands but you have to hail them like you would a regular taxi.
The Oresund link was inaugurated in 2000, and had its 10th anniversary in 2010. It links Denmark and Sweden and has increased the cooperation between Copenhagen and Malmö. In addition to the bridge, the Oresund tunnel is also a part of the link. It is four kilometers long and is divided into two railway tracks, two express way tracks and an escape and service track. The link is used by commuters, tourists, and cargo trucks, and has really brought Denmark and Sweden closer together.
The Copenhagen Metro opened in 2002 and has, since then, provided Copenhageners and tourists alike with a dependant and environmentally friendly mode of transportation through the city. The construction began in 1997, and in 2002, the first stage was ready, followed by the second stage the year after. In 2007, the route to East Amager was expanded with stops all the way to Copenhagen Airport. The trains have no conductors and the doors are fully automatic with pressure sensitive sensors that ensure the safety of the passengers. There is already another expansion planned, the City Ring, which opens 17 new stations in 2018.
Langelinie was established in 1894, and is a part of the Copenhagen Freeport. Langelinie is known for a number of things, among others, there is, on average, a big cruise ship alongside the wharf every other day. The Little Mermaid also claims Langelinie as Her home, but She needs no further introduction. Langelinie also offers cheap brand name clothes at the many outlet stores, and exquisite meals and delicacies. Langelinie is simply one of those places you must visit when you are in town.
Copenhagen Central Station is the central junction of both Denmark and Copenhagen, and is situated in the heart of the city opposite of Tivoli. There is a strong possibility that you will make a stop at Central Station in some capacity if you are visiting as a tourist. Almost all S-trains make a stop here like lots of the city’s A-busses and regular busses. Trains going through Europe and regional trains for all of Denmark depart here. The Central Station also offers a travel agency, postal office, shopping centre, supermarket, eating places and much more.
Dybbølsbro Station is the next southbound stop after the Central Station. It ties Vesterbro to the rest of the city, and if you go to the left, you might end up in the fashionable night club area, Kødbyen. If you go to the right, you will go to the big shopping centre, Fisketorvet, where all your shopping needs may be met. Fisketorvet shares grounds with a big multiplex cinema, Cinemaxx.
