Train from Gothenbury to Copenhagen

Need advise to what train do I take from Gothenburg to Copenhagen. Is noon a good time to get on the train and enjoy a 3 and 1/2 hour ride to Copenhagen?

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.

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.

Joen
