When is the best time to travel to Denmark?

The best time to visit Denmark is in the late spring to early summer when the grey skies have cleared, everything is bright, and there is the least chance of rainfall. Between May and June, temperatures are very pleasant, so you will be comfortable when walking around the streets or trekking on one of the many nature trails. The crowds at this time are also lesser than they are in the late summer months. Another good time to visit is in September when the leaves have turned bright red and orange and the weather is still enjoyable. This is the best time to cycle, as the conditions are ideal for use of the national cycle routes.

Is there transportation in Denmark?

Trains are one of the most convenient ways to travel long distances. Trains come very often and there are a few types of trains available that serve different areas; Regional, InterCity, and InterCity Lyn (an express train). In Copenhagen, there is also a metro network that consists of two lines and runs 24 hours a day. Coach buses are also very common and can connect you from Denmark to other locations in Europe. Public busses operate in most cities but are less commonly used outside of smaller towns. Of course, there is also the option of cycling, which is a very popular means of transportation in Denmark.
