Taking the Metro

Transportation in and Around Copenhagen

In September 2019, a major extension project to open Cityringen (also known as M3) was completed, bringing an additional 17 lines to the metro. With advanced technology, the trains are driverless and therefore the metro system runs 24 hours a day!

Metro stations are scattered around the city, and can be spotted with a big red “M.” During the day the metro runs frequently and often on time, with trains coming around every four minutes, and during late night hours, every 15-20 minutes.

The metro conveniently connects the airport to Copenhagen’s city center with a roughly 20-minute journey.
