Visitors usually arrive in Copenhagen, either flying in to gleaming Kastrup Airport or pulling in to the city’s Central Station, connected with the European rail network via Germany and, across the spectacular Øresund bridge, to Sweden. Most international buses also arrive at Central Station. In addition, the regional airports at Aalborg, Århus and Billund handle a growing number of budget flights, mostly operated by Ryanair. There are regular ferry services to Sweden/Norway (via Frederikshavn or Hirtshals) and a rather lengthier connection to the Faroe Islands/Iceland (via Hirtshals).
