Transportation

Public transportation is generally well organized and reliable

If you need to travel by train or bus you can plan your journey in Denmark, locally and nationally (choose English or German in the upper right corner) HERE

Specifically for the buses in Aarhus: It is possible to buy a ticket on board the bus (DKK 20,00 for 2 zones), or you can buy a 2-zone card with 10 rides in most kiosks and supermarkets (DKK 140). The 10-ride card at DKK 140 can be used at any time of the day. If, however, you travel outside the rush hours, you can buy an 'off-peak' 10-ride card for DKK 110, which can only be used Monday-Friday between 11am - 1pm and  6pm-7am, plus Saturdays, Sundays and holidays
