About the station

The ShowMeTheJourney guide to Copenhagen's main train station, København H, points out what to look out for when departing and arriving from here by train.
It also explains how travel on to the city centre, the tourist attractions and Kastrup Airport - as well as featuring details of the most highly rated places to stay near København H.

Many historic stations in Europe, are compared to cathedrals, partially because when they built they were the only challengers to the cathedral's status as the city's largest building.
Use København H station in the evening and this comparison is fully realised, due to the soft lighting and somewhat hushed atmosphere.


Seven Things Worth Knowing About Copenhagen's Main Station:

(1) København H is located on the western edge of København/Copenhagen city centre.

Norreport station is actually closer to the city centre.
So it's worth checking the location of the your final destination in the city before you book tickets.
Most trains to København/Copenhagen travel beyond København H station to call at Norreport.

(2) Those trains which call at Norreport also terminate or call at Østerport Station - the closest station to the statue of The Little Mermaid.

(3) When departing from København/Copenhagen to the east, south and west by train, if you haven't reserved it can be a good idea to join a train at Norreport station instead.
Most of the spare seats can be taken by the time a train arrives at København H.

Though if you need to buy a ticket head to København H as it has staffed ticket counters.

(4) The station concourse at København H bridges the spor (platforms/tracks) that the trains depart from - which are at a lower level and are accessed by escalators and lifts/elevators.

(5) The entrance/exit to København H station on the road named Bernstorffgade, is across the street from The Tivoli Gardens.

(6) At the other end of the concourse is the entrance/exit on to the street named Reventlowsgade - which gives easy access to many of the nearest hotels to the station.
The new København H metro station is also located here.

However the Reventlowsgade entrance/exit is at a different level to the main concourse, - but there is an elevator available if you have luggage etc.

(7) The left luggage office is also located by the Reventlowsgade entrance/exit.
