Getting from the airport to the center of Copenhagen
When you land at Copenhagen Airport, the easiest way to get to the city center is to take the metro and get off at Nørreport Station. It takes 15 min to get to the center with metro. Both metro lines (M1 and M2) go in the same direction, so you don’t need to worry about going the wrong way. 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.

Option A – Get to Forum St. (both metro lines) and walk 6 min to Søpavillonen
Option B – Get to Nørreport St. (both metro lines) and walk 14 min to Søpavillonen
Option A – Get to Peblinge Dossering with bus 12 or 66 and walk 2 min to Søpavillonen

Where to buy tickets
You can buy your ticket in ticket machines, which accept Danish cash and the most common credit cards, or in 7 Eleven kiosks at the train and metro stations. In Copenhagen Airport arrival hall and at Copenhagen Central Station there is a DSB ticket office, where you can also purchase your tickets. Please note that not all ticket types/travel cards can be purchased in the ticket machines.
Extra tip: Always have your ticket with you in case a conductor wants to see it. Travelling without a valid ticket will result in a fine of up to 750 DKK.
