Driving in and around Copenhagen

Key routes

Copenhagen has a good network of highways, including public roads and toll-free motorways. These connect up the various districts of the city itself and also connect Copenhagen with other parts of Northern Europe. Traffic is on the increase here as elsewhere, and the network of arterial roads which take drivers to the city centre are prone to congestion during peak times.

Christians Brygge runs along the riverside before taking a winding left turn into the main shopping centre.

Norre Volgade and Oster Volgade traverse the northern part of the city centre from east to west.

The area around the Amalienborg Royal palace features a neat grid of local roads, in contrast to the more haphazard design of the shopping district.

Major Highways

Gothersgade is the main road in the city, cutting straight through the central shopping area and passing adjacent to Rosenborg Have and connecting with the car ferry for Inderhavnen in the east district. When using these and other roads, remember a few general points about driving in Denmark:

• In Denmark, you are required by law to include a number of specific items in your vehicle. These include headlamp beam deflector stickers, a warning triangle and some other pieces of equipment. If you’re pulled over for a spot check and these are missing you can receive a hefty fine.
• Overtake stationary trams on the right side only, but moving trams may sometimes be overtaken on the left.
• If you’re on a narrow road and traffic is coming the other way, you must use a passing place on your side if there is one and give way to oncoming vehicles.
• The speed limit on Danish roads is 50kph in residential areas, though this may drop to 30kph. On motorways the limit may be 90kph or 100kph, and on all other roads apart from those in residential areas the speed limit is 80kph.
