The station is located on the Coast Line between Copenhagen and Helsingør, and is the northern terminus of the Klampenborg radial of Copenhagen's S-train network. It is served by a frequent Oresundtrain service between Helsingør and Malmö, operated by the railway company DSB Øresund, as well as line C of the S-train network.

History

Train service began by DSJS in 1863 and was taken over by DSB in 1864. The current station building was built in 1897. Like the other stations on the Øresund line, it was designed by Heinrich Wenck. The station was among the first served by the S-train, as service began on the 3 of April 1934 when the line Frederiksberg-Vanløse-Hellerup-Klampenborg was opened.

Architecture

In line with the stations on the Coast line, as well as of Heinrich Wenck's work in general, the station is designed in National Romantic style. The station site also include an open waiting area covered by an elaborate cast iron roof. All buildings are listed.
