Copenhagen is a compact city and everything is close at hand. Most hotels, restaurants, sights and shops are within walking distance. Unlike any other European capital city, Copenhagen has few traffic problems and no congestion, which guarantees minimal travel times between any of the locations in and around the city.
To and from the Airport
In 2011 CPH serviced a record-high 22.7 million passengers and continued the increase of passengers. Currently 64 airlines operate flights in and out of CPH. Copenhagen has direct flights to more than 100 destinations outside Denmark.
Train and metro station is connected directly with the airport terminal. The train and metro run around the clock and go in direct line to the city center and Bella Center (the Metro) and the majority of hotels. Busses and taxis are also available at the airport.
The Metro’s fully automated trains guarantee effective and fast link between the large urban areas. The Metro is operating around the clock. During peak periods trains run every 90 seconds from stations above and below ground level. The proposed venue, Bella Center, has its own Metro station.
Trains and buses
Trains and buses are plentiful and run frequently to all parts of the country including the airport as well as in the city of Copenhagen.
Two harbor buses also function functioning just like ordinary buses making it easy to travel between the centre of Copenhagen and Christianshavn/Holmen/The Opera House.
Trains leave from Malmö in Sweden and it is very easy and conveninent to travel to Bella Center. The train leave every 20 and the travel time is approximately 35 minutes from the city center.
Taxis are comfortable and clean clearly licensed. They operate at fixed mileage rates depending on the time of day and accept all major credit cards.
Travel Passes for delegates
The Copenhagen Transport Authority (Movia) issues special discount travel cards for delegates of larger conferences. These cards can be used on the Metro, the buses, waterbuses and the trains in the Greater Copenhagen area. The card offers great savings compared to a normal day ticket.
Walking and Bicycling
Copenhagen was the first city in the world to introduce pedestrian streets and with its’ manageable size and most attractions located in the city centre, walking is an attractive option.
Copenhagen is also known as the "City of Bikes" due to its longstanding and lively cycling tradition. Most locals use bicycles as an indispensable mean of transport.
