How to get a Taxi in Copenhagen

There are plenty of taxis in Copenhagen. They come in many colours, and are usually quite large and comfortable. They can be flagged on the street or taken from ranks at various points around the city centre.

If the yellow taxi sign is lit, the taxi is available for hire. Free taxis also display the word FRI. Stands can be found outside hotels, and major tourist spots such as the Rosenborg Castle, National museum of Denmark, on Vestergade (where DIS is located), by Gammel Torv (The Old Square) and by Hovedbanegård, Copenhagen’s Central Train Station.

If you’d prefer waiting inside during cold months, you can book a taxi by phone or use a taxi app. Two of the main companies are DanTaxi and Taxa 4×35.
