Good to know:
Besides for trains of State Railway DSB, Eurail is also valid on the largest private railways, Arriva and Oresundtag, allowing you to travel on almost the entire network. On the main lines starting from Copenhagen, Intercity trains run at frequent intervals to major cities such as Aarhus, Alborg, Odense and Esbjerg, but you will also find frequent connections on the other lines in the country.
Timetables are available in our schedule planner or the Eurail app which include all trains and timings. You can also check on the national schedule planner.

Important routes run from Copenhagen and Fredrikshavn to Oslo, from Hirtshals to Larvik, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen as well as from Fredrikshavn to Göteborg and from Helsingor to Helsingborg.
