    Car Hire at Copenhagen Central Train Station - Discovering the Danish Capital

    Copenhagen Central Station is a major railway station located in the heart of the Danish capital, just a few minutes from many of the city's top tourist attractions, including several museums and the world-famous Tivoli Gardens. Serving more than 100,000 passengers each day, it provides Copenhagen with Intercity and Express trains to destinations throughout the whole of Denmark such as Odense, Aarhus, Aalborg, Esbjerg, Thisted and Sønderborg, as well as regular services to numerous international cities, including Stockholm and Hamburg several times a day.

    Standing proud as a monumental reminder of early 20th-century Danish architecture, the current station building dates from 1911 although there's been a station on the same site since 1847. Designed in the same style as Copenhagen’s nearby City Hall, it offers travellers and visitors alike a very wide range of on-site amenities and facilities, most notably an impressive shopping centre and several cafés and restaurants. It's possible to buy tickets to anywhere in Denmark and beyond using the many self-service ticket machines that have touch-screens and an English-language facility.

    One of the world's most popular tourist destinations, Copenhagen is a stylish blend of northern and central Europe with a cutting edge arts and cultural scene. Along with Tivoli Gardens (its number one attraction), the city boasts a staggering number of first-rate museums and galleries, including the Nationalmuseet where visitors can see some of the country's rarest treasures. Copenhagen's lively harbour area, the Nyhavn, is another must and one of the best places in the capital to wine and dine, especially on warm summer evenings.

    With a car hire at Copenhagen Central Train Station you'll have quick access to the city's surrounding regions comprising verdant landscapes, picturesque seaside towns and dozens of ancient and very historic castles. Many of Scandinavia's leading attractions lie within a short distance of the city, most notably the Viking Ship Museum, Hans Christian Andersen Museum and Legoland. The capital's day-trip potential is seemingly endless with neighbouring Malmö and the rest of southern Sweden easily reachable by car.

    Parking tips

    A busy metropolis, Copenhagen attracts more than a million car-driving visitors every year, so the city is very well prepared for tourists looking to park their car rental at Copenhagen Central Train Station and other parts of the centre. Although it’s quite easy to get around Copenhagen by car, there’s always a great demand for parking spaces, especially in the busy downtown areas and particularly during the weekday rush-hours. Public parking is widely available right across Copenhagen and naturally you'll have to pay to park there and sometimes comply with time restrictions imposed in some parts of the city. Situated very close to the station, Q-Park Vesterport is a two-level underground in a very convenient central location, within walking distance of Tivoli Gardens, Strøget (the city's main pedestrianised shopping area) and Copenhagen's beautiful City Hall Square. Downtown Copenhagen is divided into zones and time-restricted areas, and the further you park away from the city centre then the cheaper it will be. The good news is that parking is free over the weekend from 5pm Saturday until 8am Monday, as well as on public holidays. Outside pay zones there's no tariff but please be aware that there may be time restrictions, so always check the street signs before leaving your vehicle. In short, you should always follow the rules and time restrictions whenever you park your car rental in Copenhagen or risk paying a hefty fine.
