Copenhagen Metro


The Copenhagen Metro operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Currently, The Copenhagen Metro has two lines running from Copenhagen Airport and Vestamager to the centre of the City continuing to suburban Vanløse. In 2018 a new circular line, Cityringen, will open, adding 17 stations to the existing 22 stations.


The Copenhagen Metro has been voted the world’s best metro in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by the International railway conference MetroRail, organized annually by Terrapinn.


After winning 1st prize in the competition for a Metro information totem issued by Ørestadsselskabet, Holscher Design has completed the design and delivery of Metro Totem. The cylindrical column in stainless steel acts as a skeleton on which transparent plates are attached.

The totem’s illuminated information adapts to daylight conditions and becomes a magically blue cylinder at night.
