Pretty much every major air line company offers flights to Copenhagen, and European trains and busses surely also travel the roads of Denmark, so getting here is not an issue and we are looking forward to welcoming you to our little Scandinavian gem.
By plane: If you arrive by plane you get out at Terminal 2 in Kastrup Airport (Copenhagen Airport). In the terminal you can find two banks located on your left hand where you can exchange money or withdraw directly from their ATMs. You can also just use your credit card during the whole trip. All places accept them, but they may charge an extra fee for foreign credit cards. However, some events and parties tend to only accept cash, but that will be clearly stated in the event description in our event calendar.
In Terminal 2 you will also find an information desk and a place where you can buy tickets to get to Copenhagen city center. From the airport to the city center you need a three zones ticket (3 zoner) which you can buy from the train ticket office or from one of the automatic ticket machines. The easiest way to get to Copenhagen city center is by metro; you take it from the airport (Lufthavn st.) and you get off in the city center (Kongens Nytorv or Nørreport st.), or at the closest station to your accommodation. You can also take the train (tog in Danish) from the station underneath Terminal 2 and get off at the Central Station (Hovedbanegård).
By train or bus: If you come by train or bus you get off at the Central Station (Hovedbanegård) located in the city center;
By car: If you come by car you will quickly understand why people here prefer to bike instead of searching for a hard to find and expensive to get, parking spot.
Smart tip: If you are more people travelling together, you can buy a ten ride travel card (3 zoner klippekort) and clip one ticket for each. Remember if you need to change train or bus you can do it using the same ticket within an hour.
Don’t be a fool tip: In case you take the train towards the opposite direction of the city center you will end up in Sweden as the next stop after the Airport st. is Malmö, which is not necessarily bad but can be annoying if it wasn’t your plan to begin with.
Before you leave
If you are leaving by plane, the fastest and easiest way to get to the airport is by metro or train. A ride from the city center to the airport takes around 15-25 minutes. At Kastrup Airport you will find machines where you can check in for most of the air line companies. It can save you a lot of time as you can go directly to the gate if you don’t have any luggage to check in.
