Boarding point Stroget was difficult to find for the 1st time. It's a 1 hour 30 minute ride which is nice. Many boarding places.

Excellent solution for visiting the city without having to prepare a travel itinerary in advance: they thought about it! Well done

It was really very useful to be able to travel on this bus and be able to stop where you wanted and then pick up the next one

A great way to see all that Copenhagen has to offer. Hop on/off wherever you like.
