A transport hub

Copenhagen Central Station (Danish: Københavns Hovedbanegård, København H) is the largest train station in Denmark and has 13 platforms. Intercity, Regional trains, S-trains, taxis, buses and from 2017 a underground metro station carry the hundreds of thousand of passengers.

The current station recently celebrated its 100th birthday and plans to modernise it will see it running another century.

One thing that is particularly striking is the wooden beams which span the hall. Usually steel would have been used but the builders of the station opted for the more elegant solution.
