Denmark and Copenhagen are famous for being incredibly bike-friendly. In Copenhagen, even though it’s the capital, everything is within a short biking distance. You can rent a bicycle from most hotels or bike rental shops. The city has well-established bike lanes, some of which are even wider than car lanes. Traffic lights are also adjusted so that green lights align with the average biking speed.


It is easy to get around by car in Copenhagen, though you need to be aware of limited parking options and traffic hours that may prolong your travel time. Traffic hours are mainly from 07.00-09.00 and 15.00-17.00.

Both directly at Copenhagen Airport and in the city center you can find several car rental companies, such as Avis, Budget, Sixt, Hertz and many more. 


Parking in the city center of Copenhagen can be limited and has a cost. The city center is divided into 4 parking zones, where the most central part is the most expensive. There is parking garage several places with good space, but also for a higher cost. Here you can find a map of the parking zones. Map over Copenhagen Parking Zones 

In Copenhagen and its surroundings there is something for everybody – hotels, hostels, airbnb, camping and more. 

We encourage you to book well in advance, as Copenhagen’s biggest hotels are close to being fully booked in the event week due to a big congress in the city. 

But there are still plenty of solutions such as hostels, minor hotels, camping and private airbnb solutions, where you can find bigger and more suitable accommodation options.
