DSB, or De Danske Statsbaner, is the Danish state owned rail transport system. DSB is responsible for the train operation on most of the Danish railways. DSB is however not responsible for the condition of the railways, this responsibility lies at Banestyrelsen, which is a governmental institution that outsources the operation to train operators like DSB and Arriva. DSB also runs a light railway, called S-tog in the area around the Danish capital, Copenhagen that connects the different areas and suburbs in the greater metropolitan area.

DSB was founded in 1885 when the government-owned company Railways of Zealand and Railways of Funen and Jutland merged.
