Renting a Bike Independently in Copenhagen

Emergency Response and Contingency Plan, DIS Summer

If you are enrolled in a session at DIS Copenhagen, you may want to consider renting a bike. Biking always makes your commute to class just a little more convenient and is a great way to discover your local neighborhood.

Once you have been assigned a housing placement, you will receive communications regarding the transportation options that are available to you. If you are eligible for Housing-to-DIS Transportation Coverage, you can choose to have a Summer Bike for your time abroad. If you are not eligible or do not choose the Semester Bike option, you can still rent a bike on your own (independently). However, your bike rental will not be subsidized or covered by DIS.

Take Part in the Local Culture: Rent a Bike

You can arrange to rent a bike before you arrive in Copenhagen or you can wait until you arrive. DIS currently has informal partnerships with the below bike companies. While these deals are special for DIS students, you have the freedom to choose other bike companies if you prefer to do so.

Note: We have discontinued our partnership with Rent Your Bike Here and Nørregade Cykler, and highly recommend that you refer to the above bicycle shops instead.

Short Term Rentals

If you do not want to rent a bike for your full time here, but want to occasionally borrow a bike or you visitors, past students have used these bike rental companies:

  • ABC Student Bikes offers free bike rental (up to one week) for relatives visiting you during your summer

You can also sign up for a bike tour through Copenhagen Fairy Tales, a Copenhagen-based sightseeing company.
