“Not worth it”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is my everyday station and I assure you, it is not worth a visit unless you are traveling from there. It was supposed to be much larger, more impressive, but the state ran out of money and ended up with this quite poor example of European railway central stations. Filled with Eastern European pickpockets and beggars, drunks and drug addicts (home grown), noise and dirt I cannot recommend this place.

“precise schedule”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

It was very easy to get around Copenhagen, with a 2 or 3zone ticket, you can travel all around the city to/from the airport, port etc everything is close by, and the train schedule is always precise! And there are baggage facilities also, both lockers and baggage left.

“Very good and clean train station”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Kopenhagen Central Station is easy to use. Everyone will speak English and be willing to help the costumers. The external area is also picturesque, with hundreds (or maybe thousands) of bikes left there by their travelling owners that don't even bother to padlock them... And the external clock is also charming.

“Need modernization!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Copenhagen Central is an old historic building, with the perks and oddities that follow. Unfortunately, most of the buildings has been given too little care over the past decade or more, and despite year-round renovation, the overall impression of the main central station is rather poor. Thankfully, the central station is only a brief stop for most people, but going there to see the actual historical buildings, is not worthwhile.

“Ticket machines didn't work”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Easy station to navigate, but half of the ticket machines at the main entrance weren't working and there didn't seam to be another place to buy tickets.
