Transport Tips

How to get from the airport to the city centre

When you land at Copenhagen Airport, the easiest way to get to the city center is to take the metro (direction: Vanløse) and get off at Nørreport Station. The airport is the end station of the metro, so you don’t need to worry that you will go in the wrong direction. It takes 15 min to get to the center with metro.

You can also take a bus, regional train or taxi, but metro is definitely the fastest option. At Nørreport Station you can switch to buses and S-trains to get to your hotel/hostel or your host’s place.

 

Travelling around Copenhagen

 

Bikes

The best way to travel around Copenhagen is definitely by bike! The city has a fantastic bike infrastructure, with over 390 kilometers of designated bike lanes. So give it a try and hop on a bike while you are here!

A bike rental place called Donkey Republic has created a special deal for The Swing Challenge participants: a 15% discount on renting their bikes!

The discount is valid in the period from the 5th to the 14th of September. You can rent their bikes with the discount by downloading their app, and writing the code SWING. Each user can use the code once, to rent from 1 to 5 bikes, from any hub in Copenhagen.

 

Bus, Metro and S-Train

Another alternative for travelling around Copenhagen is of course public transport. You can choose between buses, metro or S-train, which connect all parts of Copenhagen with each other. An easy public transport option between all our class- and party venues is the bus called 5C, which runs every few minutes.

Schedule
You can check the public transport schedule on Google Maps or on Rejseplanen.

Tickets
It is important to know that any ticket to public transportation works for all buses, trains and metro in Copenhagen, as long as it covers the appropriate zones. There is 3 zones from the airport to the city centre, while a 2-zone ticket will work for the whole city centre. It’s easy to get help from staff in the airport arrival terminal.

Single tickets cost:
2 zones (centre of Copenhagen) – 24 DKK
3 zones (centre of Copenhagen + airport) – 36 DKK

If you are planning to use a lot of public transportation, then the 72 hours City Pass for 200 DKK might be your best option. You can buy it online and have it sent to your phone via SMS. You can also buy a paper version of City Pass at the Copenhagen Airport, at Copenhagen’s Central Train Station and at other train and metro stations.
