Getting around

How to get around! 

Topic illustration


The most convenient and popular way of getting around in Copenhagen is by bike.

Here are some suggestions for where to pick one up when you first get here: rent from 70kr/month (includes a super-useful built-in tablet for navigating the city)

• rent from 80kr/month rent & buy new and used 

• (e-bay equivalent) buy used

Then there's also Donkey Republic - download the app and find your nearest bike to rent by the hour!


Public transportation

If you need to travel by bus, metro and train there various different tickets you can buy:

  • Bus - you can buy tickets on board (cash only)
  • Train - you can buy 24 hour tickets and single-trip tickets in train stations (more info)
  • Metro - buy tickets in the station
  • 24/72 hour City Pass (including transport from the airport) from 80DKK and 100DKK for adults
  • Rejsekort - a prepaid re-usable ticket you can top up at Rejsekort ATMs or online. Aimed primarily at residents of Denmark (you need a CPR number/to fill in paperwork and provide ID) there is also an option for short term stays (more info).
  • Here’s some advice on how to use it from University Post DK
  • You can also use the Mobilbilletter app for zones 1-8, but Rejsekort is cheaper.

About us

Founders is a startup studio based in lovely Copenhagen, Denmark. We partner with amazing entrepreneurs to build companies from zero to traction (or, idea-stage to product-market-fit).

We made this playbook based on what we've learned welcoming new desk mates, ping pong break pals and co-founders from 20+ nationalities to the Founders Family. Most of this info is already available, but it's scattered between a bunch of different sites and it can be hard to know where to start. We've pulled it all together in one place and thrown in our own recommendations so you can focus on your new job, life, adventure!

Like any good guide, our playbook is a living document that we will constantly be updating. Something you want to see in here? Help us keep the content fresh and relevant by dropping us an email! :)
