Fly Stansted to Copenhagen in around an hour and a half with a direct service.
The climate in the Danish capital is fairly mild, which is conducive for exploring the city streets through summer months that do not serve up excessive heat. Winter can see the city framed quite beautifully by frost and snow, equating to an excellent time to visit Copenhagen.
The airport lies five miles south of the city centre, while neighbouring Malmo is 15 miles to the east. Copenhagen is well-served by buses, trains, taxis and a metro system, which can all be used to help you complete your onward journey.
The number 5A bus connects the airport to the city centre, and stops at the Central Station along the way. The number 36 meanwhile heads to Nøragersmindevej, and the 888 can help you make the trip to Arhus which is found on the Jutland Peninsula.
There are regular trains between Copenhagen Airport and the city centre, with departures every 10 minutes. The ticket office and platform can both be found in Terminal 3. There is a free shuttle bus to this building that takes 5 minutes from Terminal 1.
Taking the Metro to the city centre takes 15 minutes, with the station located under cover at the end of Terminal 3. Tickets can be purchased from here or at the terminal building’s DSB ticket office. Metro services depart every five minutes or so through the daytime and evening, which lengthens to every 15-20 minutes through the night.
There is a taxi rank outside Terminal 3, while car rental companies Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt all operate from the airport.
