You can reach Aarhus on the Jutland peninsula in about 3 hours with a train from Copenhagen.
The Danish railway system is a good choice, it is fast, efficient and runs on time, unless you are in the middle of a snowstorm, and the railway is also the cheapest form of public transport in Denmark.
Today with the bridges connecting Zealand and Funen and connecting Funen and the Jutland peninsula it’s fast and easy to catch the train to and from Copenhagen to the Jutland peninsula and if you like you can continue your journey down through Europe.
The Danish bus transport system is efficient and will get you to just about any town in the country.
In towns serviced by trains, you will normally find the bus station next to or close by the train station.
The tickets are normally issued by the bus driver.
You will find that on the eastern part of the Jutland peninsula, Funen and Zealand, generally there are about 25-30 km. between towns with a population at about 20.000 or more, with 2-3 smaller
towns in between, most of these towns are connected by bus and buses depart just about every hour between 6 am and midnight.
On the west coast on the Jutland peninsula you will find that the distance between the towns can wary a bit more.
Be aware of the X-Buses as they are normally called, the X-Bus is an Express bus, and normally travels about 50-60 km with limited stops, most of the times the bus will only stop 4-5 times on the journey.
Make sure that the bus stops where you need to get off. If not, take the normal bus transport.
