Transportation to Odense
The central rail station in Odense is a transit point for all trains from the European mainland towards Copenhagen, therefore it can be reached from anywhere in the country. Odense is just one hour by train from Copenhagen Central Station. There are also direct trains from Copenhagen Kastrup Airport to Odense.
Funen is crossed by the major European highway E20, and is thereby connected to Zealand with the Great Belt bridge (toll bridge) and to Jutland with the Little Belt bridge (free).
The small Odense Airport is located around 17 km from the city center of Odense, but except for holiday routes to Southern Europe, it is only accessed by chartered airplanes. The airport is home to a number of air charter companies, but chartering an airplane is of course comparatively expensive. Some major international airports nearby are Copenhagen Airport and Billund.
A good road and motorway system connects all coastal towns with each other as well as Odense. A highway connects the capital Odense with Svendborg. Even rural roads are of high quality, as in the rest of Denmark.
The island of Funen is very bike friendly, with only the center of the island being hilly. Most roads in and from Odense have dedicated bike paths. Beware of no-cycling signs, though.
All towns and small communities are served with high daily frequency. In Odense an extensive bus network serves all parts of the city as well as its suburbs. By Tram
