Aarhus lies at one of the most important railway junctions in Denmark. There are hourly departures to the north, south and west. Aarhus has hourly services to and from Copenhagen. The opening of the Tunnel under the Great Belt has shortened the journey by one hour, so now the trip takes three and a half hours.

Trains bound for Aarhus railway station leave Copenhagen Airport hourly. The price is about DKK 400 for a one-way ticket (including seat reservation).
