Get Your Interrail Denmark Pass

Having an Interrail Denmark Pass allows you to ride any trains of the country’s major railways. Most trains are run by the Danish State Railways (DSB).

Your Interrail or Eurail Pass is valid for Denmark’s regional trains (RØ, RV, ØR, IR), InterCity (IC) trains, Copenhagen suburban trains called S-Tog, as well as international trains that connect Danish cities like Copenhagen to neighboring European cities like Stockholm in Sweden, and Berlin and Hamburg in Germany.

Depending on the kind of Pass you decide to purchase, you can use it to ride unlimited trains on designated travel days within a specific validity period.

This is especially perfect for travelers who want to maximize their trip by exploring as much of the country as they can in a short period of time.

Note, however, that some trains, such as the high-speed ones or the ones for long journeys, still require reservations even with an Interrail or Eurail Pass.

One of the greatest benefits of having an Interrail Pass is that it offers you the luxury to be spontaneous while traveling. It allows you to be flexible with the trains you get on, so you don’t need to rush in order to catch a specific train, and can easily check the times of the next trains heading to your destination.

This way, you get to have more fun and see more without worrying about missing crucial rides.

Your Interrail or Eurail Denmark Pass also gives you free or discounted travel on certain buses and ferries on your valid travel days.

But most of all, having an Interrail or Eurail Pass offers you ultimate convenience in planning your Denmark trip, so that you can fully enjoy your travel experience.

For travelers who are residents or citizens of countries outside of Europe, the available option is the Eurail Pass, which functions almost the same as the Interrail Pass.

Click here and it will lead you to Eurail.com where you can select and purchase your Eurail Pass.

Youth, senior, and family discounts for both Interrail and Eurail Passes are available.

If you are interested to tour Denmark or another single country only, check out the list of Interrail and Eurail One Country Passes available for you.

If you are planning to travel across different countries in Europe, the best option for you would be to get an Interrail or Eurail Global Pass.

A third option for non-Europeans is the Eurail Select Pass, which allows you to visit selected countries during the specific validity period.           

Price Reduction: Interrail Denmark Pass

Interrail Passes can be bought at discounted rates in certain cases. If you’re 27 years old or younger, you’re eligible for the Youth Pass which gives you 25% off the standard price of the Interrail Pass.

Interrail/Eurail Denmark: What To Do, Where To Go?

Whilst we are strong advocates of the spontaneous approach when it comes to your Eurail or Interrail Germany route planning, thinking ahead a little never hurt anyone!

To that end, here is our top 5 list of places to see and things to do on your Interrail or Eurail Germany trip – feel free to use them, or add your own in the comments!

Copenhagen

Copenhagen is Denmark’s capital, a city overflowing with rich cultural sites as well as recreational attractions. Visit Tivoli Gardens, the world’s second oldest amusement park, and the inspiration behind Disney’s theme parks. It offers a variety of attractions, from roller coasters to puppet plays to concerts, and the gardens transform into a Christmas wonderland during winter.

Dyrehavsbakken, or Bakken for short, is the world’s oldest amusement park, found just north of Copenhagen, in the woodlands, so you can enjoy picnics and horse carriage rides surrounded by nature in between your roller coaster and drop tower rides.

Amalienborg & Nyhavn

Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish Royal Family, is located in the Frederiksstaden quarter in Copenhagen.

It is made up of four identical palaces forming an octagon, which shows off the Danes’ unique architectural design. Check out the Soldiers of the Royal Guard in their bearskins while you’re there.

Nyhavn is a charming harbor found behind the Amalienborg Palace that is often featured in most postcards of Denmark because of its picturesque row of colorful houses and tall ships along the quayside. Stroll along the area and grab a bite to eat at the restaurants and cafés.

Helsingør

Venture outside of Copenhagen and visit Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, the closest city to Sweden. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is the setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Explore the castle and its many attractions, and don’t miss the grand Shakespeare theater festivals in August. Helsingør also has numerous cultural attractions, such as museums for art, architecture, and even wine; you can also spend your summer holiday by the beaches.

 

Odense

You can stop by Hans Christian Andersen Museum in Odense, the master storyteller’s birthplace. The museum displays all things Andersen, such as artifacts and artworks. Known as the heart of Denmark, Odense is also host to a number of music and film festivals throughout the year.

Another famous Danish castle is Egeskov Castle, in Kvarnstrup, near Odense, which looks straight out of a fairy tale with its majestic spires, a knight’s hall, and the best preserved moat in Europe. It boasts of attractions such as its vintage car museum, a dollhouse, a play forest, a treetop walk, Segway tours, and other historical exhibits.

Billund Legoland

Denmark is the home of the Lego, so it is a must to visit the original Legoland theme park located in Billund, in Jutland, right next to the original Lego factory and the Billund airport.

Admire Miniland, featuring famous local and international landmarks recreated with Lego bricks, and relive your childhood with the park’s different themed lands and rides.

 

Aarhus

And while you’re in the Jutland peninsula, take time to visit Aarhus, Denmark’s second-largest city.

It is a vibrant university town with cultural attractions such as the Den Gamle By, an open-air museum that features reconstructions of historical Danish towns and buildings, and ARoS Art Museum, which is known for its iconic rainbow-colored panoramic circular skywalk.

Go shopping around the Latin Quarter and try out the Nordic cuisine, and don’t miss the NorthSide music festival in the summer.

Recommended Interrail Denmark Route

The best place to start off your tour of Denmark is Copenhagen, especially if you arrive in the country at the Copenhagen airport. Spend a few days to soak in all that Copenhagen has to offer, then head up to Helsingør to see Hamlet’s Castle – it’s only a quick, 45-minute train ride away with the regional express train.

Maximize your day trip up north by visting nearby attractions such as the Louisana Modern Art Musuem, Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, and Roskilde.

Helsingør>Frederiksborg>Hillerød>Rosilde

After seeing most of the sights in these cities, all located on the island of Zealand, explore Funen Island, Denmark’s third-largest island.

The train ride to Funen’s major city, Odense, Hans Christian Andersen’s hometown, only takes around two hours.

To complete your tour across Denmark, ride to the country’s largest island, Jutland, which boasts its own rich culture. Notable cities worth visiting include Aarhus, a vibrant, cultural hub and Jutland’s unofficial capital, and Billund, where Legoland is located.

Which Interrail Denmark Pass Will I Need?

If you plan to stay only in Denmark for the entirety of your trip, then an Interrail Denmark Pass is the best choice for you. However, an Interrail Global Pass can also be of great use to you if you plan to visit other countries in your European tour.

Eurail Denmark-Germany Pass

Germany borders Denmark at South Jutland. Commence your Denmark journey at Copenhagen on Zealand, then make your way through Odense on Funen and Aarhus on Jutland plus their surrounding attractions.

There are regular trains that go to major German cities daily; you can hop on a train to Germany from Aarhus or even from Copenhagen.

Eurail Denmark-Sweden Pass

If you plan to visit Sweden after Denmark, the closest Danish city is Helsingør. A suggested route is to set your starting point at Jutland Peninsula, by arriving at the Billund airport and kicking off your Denmark travel at Legoland Billund.

Then you can explore the rest of Jutland and move eastward through Funen Island (Odense) and Zealand (Copenhagen), and cap off your tour at Helsingør.

Then you can catch a train that brings you to Stockholm, Sweden. A Eurail Denmark-Sweden Pass would come in handy for this trip.

Which Eurail Denmark Pass Will I Need?

If you are eligible for a Eurail Pass, you have a lot more options to mix and match to come up with the most useful and convenient Rail Pass especially if you plan on inter-country travels.

The Eurail Select Pass allows you choose either two, three, or four neighboring countries to visit during one trip.

The best choices are Denmark-Sweden, Denmark-Germany, or a combination of both, as Germany borders Denmark on the south, and Sweden on the east.

You can also opt to go for the one-month Eurail Scandinavia Pass, which allows you to visit Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Visit Eurail.com to discover other combinations you can do.
