Hovedbanegården, the Grand Central Station, is the centre for all train traffic in Copenhagen as well as Denmark. From Central Station, you are able to travel to the forest as well as the beaches with the S-train. You will also find departures to most of the bigger cities of Europe, on ordinary trains. In 1911, the Central Station moved to its present location on Vesterbrogade, just across the road from Tivoli. The man behind this grand building was DSB's chief architect Henrik Wench. At the beginning of the 1990s, several fancy shops and cafés opened up in the arrival and departure hall, which lead to the creation of the shopping centre Hovedbanen. The ambience is very relaxed at Central Station, at any time of the day or year, with all kinds of people. Even the Royal Family have their own apartment at the Central Station, where they wait for their train to depart. There is a clock just inside the entrance; many people make arrangements to meet 'under the clock'.
