Copenhagen car rental

We have arranged a car for our last day in Copenhagen to have a day trip up the coast and perhaps to Roskilde. The intention was to drop it next day at the airport when we leave on our 8:30 am flight to Amsterdam. We are staying at Best Western Hotel Hebron and there doesn't seem to be a lot of nearby parking. Would we be better off just dropping the car in town at the end of the day and taking public transport back to the airport the next day? Thanks for your advice.

I would say definately yes.

If you can even find a parking space close to your hotel, you'd have to pay for it all through the night.

With the hotel that close to the main train station just jump on a train.

Driving up the coast and perhaps down to Roskilde is a nice trip, but perhaps not as relaxing as going by train.

Some parking in Helsingør will require a prepayed ticket - from a vending machine in the street - other places be sure to indicate on the little clock face in the car when you parked.

Same in Roskilde - there's no limedless parking on the street in cities around Copenhagen.

Actually the plan is more likely the Karen Blixen museum, Louisiana, and Fredensborg. It is too far from the train station for my husband to walk to these sights. Will we be able to get a train to the airport that will put us there 1/2 to 2 hours ahead of our flight? Thanks very much.

Ok, parking at Karen Blixen Museet, Louisianna is good - and should be possible in Fredensborg too.

You will indeed be able to catch a train to get to the airport in time.

Between the hours of 1 a.m and 4 a.m. it runs once an hour, but at all other times at least evey 20 minutes - often every 10 minutes.

During your stay just pop over to the station and check the train schedule and find the right track, it's easy.
