I've read about this one train/ferry ticket you can buy that will get you from Copenhagen to Helsingor (Elsinore Castle) the ferry to Helsingborg, back down Sweden through Malmo and across the bridge back to Copenhagen. I've tried to find information about how to purchase this ticket, but I can't seem to find anything. Does this still exist? If so, does anyone have any idea how much it costs and how to purchase it at the train station in Copenhagen (aka what ticket to ask for)? Thanks so much!!
To avoid confusion, the castle in Helsingør is Kronborg Castle. A round trip ticket to Helsingborg from Copenhagen would be 136 kronor, ferry included.
The Danish Railways (DSB) page is all in Danish, so it's probably not much help to you. I'm not sure what ticket you are referring to, so you probably should e-mail the tourist center in Copenhagen (www.visitcopenhagen.com) to see if they can help.
At the Central Station in Denmark, you just need to go to one of the ticket booths - all the 'ticket sellers' speak very good English, so it shouldn't be a problem.
The Danish Rail site has a Journey Planner in English: http://www.rejseplanen.dk/bin/query.exe/en?
ALso, you may want to consider the 10-ride tickets as someone else posted, but you can also consider the Copenhagen Card that gives you unlimited rail/bus travel in half of Sealand plus free entrances (no waiting in lines) to tons of museums, or reduced entrance fees, plus discounts on ferries:
Buy the card when you get to Denmark - it's available in many places and you get a booklet. Once you consider the cost of a weekly rail pass or the 10-trip ticket, plus entrance fees, it's worth the cost of the CPH card because you just flash it and go. We use it every time we visit Copenhagen.
Thanks Kate and Phoebe, appreciate it! I've heard about the CPH Card and will definitely get one when I go; it seems like a great value and i will be there 5 days so it seems quite worth it. I just didn't know if this ticket that I mentioned had a specific name. The way I read, it was one ticket that got you from Copenhagen to Helsingor, the ferry to Helsingborg, down to Malmo, and back to Copenhagen and that it was a nice long day trip, which I'd really like to do. I just didn't know what this might cost and also how to ask for it at the train station (even if i'm asking in English LOL) Maybe this "circular ticket" doesn't exist anymore, I will have to search around and see if I can find where it's mentioned.
okay i did a couple google searches and found something called "Round the Sound" - it's mentioned more than one place so are people just calling this do-it-yourself circle "Round the Sound" or is there an actual "Round the Sound" ticket one can by?
I found this on another message board, maybe it is my answer:) "The Round the Sound ticket is good for just one day too if you make several stops (which you do with Helsingor, Lund etc.). I think you have to ask for Öresundbillet (or Öresund Flexi if you are many) but it is in any case the same concept as on the Swedish side and valid there too."
Oh here, I posted too soon http://www.visitoresund.info/content/us/pleasure_right_menu/travel_planning down at the bottom. sounds like that's what I want and sounds like a great deal too. thanks for the help!!
