Well, depending on weather, you will for sure get a scenic daylight ride.
It is a nice trip, not many built-up areas along the way, and some pretty coastal scenery in Sweden. The train is modern and comfortable and has some facilities including relatively cheap drinks in a vending machine, but it is probably a good idea to shop a lunch-packet ... Remember that the last part before Copenhagen is via the impressive Øresund bridge, one of the longest in the world.Edited: 07 September 2010, 06:05
Thanks for all your help. What train number is it exactly? IS there a certain train that runs there?
I am booking the train in the reverse direction (ie. from Copenhagen to Gothenburg). The 11 am is an intercity train whereas the 12:59 is an X2000. They take the same length of time. Is the 11 am train a decent one as the time works better for us? Also if I choose our seats on the Sj.se website , how to I make sure that I will be forward facing?
I am not a specialist as regards this train line but I have ben using it 3 x 2 times on various holidays. All trains are modern, quick and comfortable. To get exact schedules, there are various possibilities on the web; one of them is http://www.bahn.de .Choose the English version on the flag button saying "deutschland" on the top row of the entry page; print "Göteborg Central" for Gothenburg, and "KOPENHAGEN" for København/Copenhagen. It will show you more details about the trains. As regards the SJ site, I think you must make a new post here at the Sweden forum, since I am a Dane based in Copenhagen & not qualified to answer the specific question.
