Best way to Copenhagen from Netherlands?

Will be attending the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf in SW Netherlands and trying to get easily and quickly to Copenhagen. Should I rent a car and drive, or is there an easier and yet not incredibly expensive alternative?

Thanks from an eager but confused traveller.

Depending on the number of travelers, renting a car with probable high drop-off charges is not the cheapest way to get to Copenhagen. The train might be a better alternative, or discount airlines (from Brussels?) might offer the best fares.

Kimberly,

Cheaper (unless there are lots of you) and MUCH faster & easier is to take the train to Brussels airport (about 3.5 hours) and from there fly Virgin Express to Copenhagen.

Book your flights as far ahead as possible to get the lowest fares.

BTW, you can reach quite a few destinations on low fare airlines (Germanwings and Hapa-Lloyd Express) from Cologne (Koeln/Bonn) Airport, which would be much closer (about 2 hours away), unfortunately Copenhagen isn't one of them...

For train schedules

Flight bookings:
www.virginexpress.com
www.germanwings.com

Hope this helps,
Andre

Rail service from Amsterdam to Copenhagen will take a minimum of 10-11 hours during daylight with changes in Osnabruck and again in Hamburg.

At first I thought this was my sister's post as she is in fact driving from Amsterdam to Copenhagen and was trying to read the maps for the best route. If there is anyone out there who knows the best way to drive, please post and I will make sure she sees this!
Thanks
