How long does it take to get from Gothenburg to Copenhagen by train?

A direct train from Gothenburg to Copenhagen covers the distance between the cities in approximately 3 and a half hours. If you don’t mind traveling with a quick train change in the scenic city of Malmo, you can save some time and make the journey in approximately 3 hours.

Which train to take from Gothenburg to Copenhagen?

As stated earlier, there are two ways of traveling between these two cities on a train. First is a direct Oresundstag Intercity train, going from Gothenburg to Copenhagen. The second way is taking a comfortable SJ Train in Gothenburg to the Malmo Central Station, there you can board an Oresundstag train which can take you to beautiful Copenhagen. Although a train change seems inconvenient, choosing the second way allows you to reduce the travel time for half an hour.

How much is a train ticket from Gothenburg to Copenhagen?

If you choose to travel on the direct Intercity train, the ticket will cost you something in the range of 85-120 USD, depending on the class you prefer to travel in or how much in advance you book your tickets.
