The whole country at your feet

The furthest you can cycle from the sea is 50km, so coastal adventures are never far away. Towns have safe cycle paths and it’s easy to join in with the locals and cycle between shops, cafes and nightlife. And if your feet are in need of a short break, you can bring your bike onto trains all over the country.

Two-wheeled culture

Danes love to cycle and most own a bike. In fact, a third of people working in Copenhagen commute by bike. Whether you are planning a cycling holiday in Copenhagen or the rest of the country, you’ll find that two wheels are one of the best ways to experience the landscape, culture and people of Denmark.
