Airport transfer

From the airport you can get to the city centre by Metro, bus, train or taxi. If you are heading to Kongens Nytorv or Nørreport station then the Metro is the fastest way and the normal train is your best option to get to the central station.

Tipping

In Denmark the average salary is comparatively high, so waiters and waitresses will not expect you to tip. However, if you are happy with the service, feel free to leave something!
