Copenhagen Ingerslevsgade Bus Station: Location and Directions
Ingerslevsgade is the main international bus station in Copenhagen. Some people may find it hard to find, because unlike similar stations in other big cities, this one does not really have a terminal building, so it may not be easy to recognize even when you’re standing nearby. Basically it’s just a street with bus stops.
The street’s name is Ingerslevsgade and it is located in Copenhagen city centre, just next to the central train station (Kobenhavn H, where H stands for Hovedbanegård – main station). Unlike Ingerslevsgade bus station, the central train station has a huge (and quite beautiful) terminal building with all the services you may need, including luggage storage, toilets, restaurants, shops, and you can also buy tickets for both trains and Copenhagen’s local transport services here.

Getting to Ingerslevsgade Bus Station
When trying to get to the Ingerslevsgade DGI-byen bus station from another part of Copenhagen, it is best to look for directions to the central train station (Hovedbanegården or København H). Then you simply walk (1-2 minutes) to the Ingerslevsgade bus stops.
By S-train (S-tøg): All but one S-train lines stop at the central train station, which is usually referred to as København H in the S-train network. The one line that doesn’t go there is the yellow line F.
By metro: Before the new metro lines are completed (expected 2019), it is best to go to Nørreport metro station and change to S-train there. It is two S-train stops from Nørreport to København H.
By bus: Although metro or S-train might feel like the obvious choice, from some locations (e.g. Amager) it is actually faster and more convenient to go by bus, particularly the faster bus lines. Most of these buses stop in front of the train station’s entrance in Bernstorffsgade, on the other side (next to Tivoli). You need to cross the railway tracks either via the train station building or via the bridge in Tietgensgade.
