List of Copenhagen Metro stations
There are 37 stations in the Copenhagen Metro, a driverless rapid transit system serving Copenhagen, Frederiksberg and Tårnby in Denmark. Of the original 22 metro stations, nine are underground, twelve are elevated, and one is at street level. Christianshavn Station offers transfer between the system's two metro lines (M1 and M2), which share track between Vanløse and Christianshavn stations. From Christianshavn, M1 branches south traveling to Vestamager Station, while M2 heads southeast to Lufthavnen Station, which serves Copenhagen Airport. Flintholm, Nørreport and Vanløse stations offer transfer to the S-train, the city's other rapid transit system which the Copenhagen Metro was built to supplement. Transfer from the Copenhagen Metro to regional trains is possible at Lufthavnen, Nørreport and Ørestad stations. The City Circle Line, which is operated and opened on 29 September 2019, has 17 stations, with transfer between the current and new lines at Frederiksberg and Kongens Nytorv stations. The new lines has a stop at Copenhagen Central Station (København H), the largest train station in Denmark.
The Copenhagen Metro opened in 2002, with additional stations opened in 2003, and the M2 branch to the airport completed in 2007. M1 and M2 are in total 21 kilometers (13 mi) long, of which 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) is in tunnels and 11 kilometers (6.8 mi) is elevated. Each line takes 23 minutes to travel from one end to the other. The City Circle Line is intended to form a 15.5-kilometer (9.6 mi) loop around the city center, with a full circumference taking 25 minutes. The plan is for M3 operated the full circle and for M4 to only operate the eastern half. The system is owned by Metroselskabet, a company owned jointly by the municipalities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, and the government of Denmark. The metro and its 34 trains are operated by the private company Metro Service.
The following two lists name the stations. The first lists the stations that opened between 2002 and 2019. It states the stations name, which lines serve it, whether it is elevated or underground (the grade), travel time in minutes to Nørreport, the ticket zone and any transfer possibilities available at the station. The second table lists those stations on the future M4 line which are yet to be build.

The M4 was previously planned to service Trianglen, Poul Henningsens Plads, Vibenshus Runddel and Nørrebro stations on a temporary basis. This plan has been abandoned, and the M4 is currently planned to serve the Ny Ellebjerg - København H - Østerport - Orientkaj route. The City Circle Line opened on 29 September 2019, the two Nordhavn stations are planned to open in 2020, and the five Sydhavn stations in 2024.
The Nordhavn end of the M4 will have 2 stations, while the Sydhavn end will have 5 stations. As the buildup areas at the Nordhavn area expands towards the North-East, no less than 9 versions of a future extension has been examined.
