Ingerslevsgade is a street in Copenhagen city centre, mainly known to visitors as the location of the long distance bus station. For more details about the bus station and related services, please see this page:


Ingerslevsgade (the street) runs parallel to the main railway tracks, starting close to the central train station (Kobenhavn H) and going to the south-west towards Dybbolsbro and Enghave (two next S-train stations). The street ends at the latter station.

You can see the map below. Ingerslevsgade is the first street next to the railway on the north / north-western side.

The bus station is located near the north-eastern end of Ingerslevsgade, close to the central train station (where the map shows “DGI-byen”, which is a big sports, leisure and conference centre).
