Getting Around Copenhagen
Public Transportation Zones
The Greater Copenhagen area is divided into zones. At bus stops and stations, you will find coloured zone maps by which you can calculate the fare for your journey. The zone system applies to all buses, trains and metro.
Central Copenhagen is zone 1, the conference hotel is in zone 3, and the airport is in zone 4. The zone numbers get higher the further away you get from the city centre.
Nearest Metro Subway Station to Conference Hotel: Ørestad
From the Airport:
All the trains go in the same direction from the airport (M2 to Vanløse Station), so you do not have to worry about getting on the wrong train.
The trains run with 4-6 minutes intervals during the day and evening. During the night the train runs every 15-20 minutes. It will take you 13 minutes to get to Nørreport Station (hub in city centre) from the airport.
Tickets can be bought at the metro station and at the DSB ticket sales counter in terminal 3. Please note that the machines only accept coins and credit cards, not notes.
