Travel info

Coming by plane:
Copenhagen airport is Scandinavia's main airport serving as SAS's hub and thus as one of the Star Alliance hubs, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding a connection. Getting from Copenhagen airport to the city itself is easy: the train from the airport leaves at least 3 times an hour, and the trip to Copenhagen Central Station takes only 13 minutes. You can also take a taxi of course. It'll cost you around DKK 300 ( 40), and it'll take around 15 minutes.

Coming by car:
Parking in Copenhagen is a nightmare, but free in the evening and the weekend. You will probably want a hotel with parking facilities. Write this on your registration form, and our conference service provider will look into the possibilities.

Transport in Copenhagen and surroundings:
Public transport is quite well-developed in Copenhagen with a metro, and S-train system (sort of an older metro) and many busses. Buying one-ride tickets is not inexpensive though, so you might want to buy a tourist pass or multiride tickets (sold at any kiosk or station).
Another way of getting around town is renting a bicycle. Most streets have bicycle lanes, so getting around on a bike is really fast and convenient.
