By public transport to Nørreport Station

The venue is in close proximity (ca. 3 minutes walk) to Nørreport Station, the main hub of public transport in Copenhagen. The next crossing is Nørre Voldgade/Gothersgade, with the Botanical Garden's main entrance at the facing corner.

From the airport

The the metro from the airport (Terminal 3) to Nørreport Station (ca. 15 minutes; there are only two metro routes, both will go to Nørreport Station). You will need a ticket valid for three zones (DKK 36.00). For guidance from Nørreport Station. Taxi from the airport to Gothersgade 130 (ca. 25 minutes) will cost about DKK 250.

By train

Many trains will go directly to Nørreport Station. If yours doesn't, take bus **5C** headed for **Husum Torv** or **Herlev Hospital** or S-Train **A** headed for **Farum St.** from Copenhagen Central Station (Hovedbanegården) to Nørreport Station. Busses will go roughly every 5 minutes, the S-Train every 10-15 minutes. You will need a ticket valid for two zones (DKK 24.00).

A useful route planner for public transport is:




Hotel Arthur ( ca. DKK 1000/night
Ibsens Hotel ( ca. DKK 850/night
Hotel Christian IV ( ca. DKK 900/night
Hotel Nora ( ca. DKK 900/night

There is good public transport in Copenhagen, and the venue is close to Nørreport Station, so it should be relatively easy to get to the meeting form hotels farther away.
