In the past things were much simpler; you only to had to choose which clothes, shoes and accessories you should pack for your holidays abroad. Nowadays, you also have to think which apps will make your trip easier. If you’re visiting Denmark, worry not because we have you covered. These nine apps (plus Culture Trip’s!) are everything you’ll need.


Mobilbilletter is one of the most useful apps if you’re planning to use public transportation in Denmark. You can buy your tickets online and save yourself a lot of struggle. The ticket system in Denmark can be confusing for newbies, while trying to find how many Danish Kroner you should give to the bus driver in order to get a ticket can sometimes take longer than you think.

Bike & Stay

If you’re planning to take one or more bike trips around the country make sure to have downloaded the Bike & Stay app beforehand. Route maps, the best campsites and recommended sights can all be found with a simple click on your mobile. The best part is that the app also works offline, so you don’t have to look for Wi-Fi spots while enjoying the Danish countryside.

Every Dane has this app on his or her mobile phone, and you should definitely to do the same. Rejseplanen shows all the important information about the country’s public transportation. You just have to type your location, whether it’s an address, a bus stop or train station, and the place you want to go. Rejseplanen will show you the best way to reach your destination as well as the timetable, the price and even delays or cancellations.

XE Currency

This is an application you have to download whenever you visit a place that has a different currency from your home country so, technically it’s not only for your trip to Denmark. Download XE Currency if you want to keep updated about the exchange rates and not lose a lot of money while also use it when shopping, dining or ordering a cold Danish beer and manage to stay on budget.

I Bike CPH

Biking is the best way to explore Copenhagen but it’s not always easy for foreigners that don’t know the best cycling routes and aren’t used to massive bike traffic. With I Bike CPH though, things are much easier. Find the best routes and shortcuts, search for addresses or the city’s attractions and let the app’s GBS get you to your destination while you’re enjoying the ride.

CPH Airport

CPH Airport is, as the name suggests, Copenhagen’s airport official app. It has all the important information about departures, arrivals and delays so it’s very useful for those who have a layover in Copenhagen and want to explore the city without stressing out and it shows the airport’s shops, restaurants and cafés for those who prefer to stay in the airport.

If you don’t already have Tinder on your mobile phone, downloading it before visiting Denmark is a good time. Don’t get us wrong, the international dating app is very popular in Denmark, so it’s a great and easy way to meet some locals. Plus, there are higher chances to persuade a Dane to go on a date through Tinder than if you try to ask them out in person.

CityMaps2Go is one of the best apps to download when traveling to Denmark because not only does it offer detailed maps and a lot of useful information about a city’s nightlife, hotels, food, you name it, but it is also accessible without an internet connection. It’s very easy to use, and you can save the places you would like to visit and plan your whole trip in advance.

Donkey Republic

Donkey Republic is a self-service bike-sharing system. The app’s users can rent a bike through their mobile, pick it up from a nearby place and after using it for as long as they wish, they just have to take it back to the pick-up location. It’s as easy as it sounds.
