  1. Thanks for this…some quick comments…can you give the approximate price in Euros in brackets? Also for the CPH-SON flight, is the domestic airport far away from the international airport?

  2. I will be visiting Sonderborg this coming June for a week of business meetings with an international group. I have found you blog to be very helpful, especially in how to get from Copenhagen to Sonderbork direct by train, which I would like to do as I enjoy European trains. On the DSB travel planner, is the correct station in Sonderborg named Sonderborg St? And are there taxis at that station?
    Thanks and keep up the excellent blog.

    • Hi Ed, thanks for your comment.

      Yes “Sønderborg St.” is the name of the train station and it is on the Jutland side of the water. All hotels are on the other side of the water so a quick taxi ride is recommended.

      It is a really small station so I don’t think you can assume there to be taxis (although there might be). I would recommend that you give the local taxi company a call an hour before or maybe email them a couple of days before. Phone number is +45 74 42 18 18 email is info@dantaxi.dk

    • It’s a 3+ h drive and there is toll across Storebælt bridge. Toll is 325DKK each way.

      You can see the route on Google maps here: https://goo.gl/maps/eL8uEhtpP5t

      Basically go west on E20 (towards Odense), turn south (towards Flensburg) on E45 and turn east on Route 8 towards Sønderborg.

    • To our knowledge you cannot. You can take a ferry from Als (where Sonderborg is) to Fyn, the middle island, but not all the way.
