The Scandinavian countries are known as expensive destinations for which tourists have to prepare a higher budget for all their experiences – from accommodation and transport to food and museums.
Denmark is no exception, but at least when it comes to transport, this summer fans in the North have the opportunity to save and redirect this part of their budget to other pleasant things.
The popular Rejsepas ticket for locals and tourists for an 8-day unlimited train ride returns this summer. It costs 399 kroner (about 53 euros) and allows each adult to travel unlimited on the trains of the Danish national railway company for 8 consecutive days.
The ticket is also valid for Arriva buses and trains, for the Copenhagen metro and S-trains, as well as for the Letbane system in Aarhus and a number of local trains.
The ticket price is almost equal to the price of a standard train ticket from Copenhagen to Aarhus.
The ticket also has a version for children under 16, and its price is 199 crowns (about 27 euros). But if an adult travels with the 8-day ticket, he is entitled to take up to two children under the age of 12 for free. Does this sound like a plan for an epic family trip to Andersen’s country?
With the ticket you can spend a few days in Copenhagen, which you can combine with a tour of cities and landmarks in the diamond region of Aarhus (European Capital of Culture in 2017) and Odense (the birthplace of the children’s writer, where his new museum is located). .
The ticket is intended for summer travel and must be used between June 25 and August 7. Rejsepas goes on sale on June 1, and the number of tickets is limited to 75,000, so it’s a good idea to buy yours early.
