The metro of Copenhagen

The new metro in Copenhagen was inaugurated in 2001 and the system is one of the world's most modern ones. These new metro trains are computer controlled and driverless! They go partly above ground, and if you sit on the front seat you will get a rollercoaster like feeling, or you got the feeling of driving the train. Currently (2017) the metro has two lines (yellow and green).

Part of the driverless metro trains go above ground.


You can sometimes get a rollercoaster like feeling when sitting in the front seats of the new metro trains! These photos were taken from the front seat.

New construction in Orestad, direction towards downtown.



The driverless metro. I took this picture from the front seat where the driver sits in traditional trains,
near Orestad when the trains were new in 2001.

The new subway system also features glassdoors at the stations (left and right). This is the station of Kongens Nytorv.
