Via Helsingør

It is a little slower than via Hillerød, but you only have to change trains once, and it is a beautiful and convenient ride. (From December 2020, you must also change at Østerport station)

    • Journey time is 45 minutes
  •  Get off at “Gilleleje” station, not at “Gilleleje Øst” station
    • I repeat: Do NOT get off at “Gilleleje Øst”. And if you do anyway, be sure to tell us 🙂
  • We will pick you up. Call us.

Transportation from Helsingør, when arriving by ferry from Sweden
If you arrive in Helsingør by ferry from Helsingborg/Sweden you simply take the Lokaltog with destination Gilleleje.

  • The yellow “Lokaltog” with destination Gilleleje is located at the south end of the station, on the city center side (West side). (i.e. not at the sea-side of the station).

Rejsekort
If you plan to visit Nukunu again it will be 30-45% cheaper to use public transportation if you use a “Rejse-kort” (a chip based “traveling card”) J.

The card can be bought at most railway stations including Copenhagen Central station, Helsingør station (7-eleven) and Gilleleje station. Rejse-kort cannot be purchased at Copenhagen Airport L.

Rejse-kort costs 100 DKK, and includes 100 DKK for traveling. When it is empty you just fill it up with money from your VISA card in a machine at the station.

Mr. Scrooge wants you to notice that if you go home via Copenhagen Airport, it will be cheaper for you to purchase the “rejse-kort” than to purchase the normal 125 DKK ticket to go to the airport.

Also please notice that when Gilleleje station is closed in the evening and weekend you cannot purchase the rejse-kort. So make sure you purchase it on a weekday in the daytime.

You present the card in the “CHECK IND” stand before travelling, and the “CHECK UD” (=check out) stand when finishing your trip.
