Arrival:
The Niels Bohr Institute is situated between the lakes and the commons in Copenhagen.

The address:
Blegdamsvej 17
2100 København Ø


By plane:
  Copenhagen Airport(Kastrup Lufthavn) is close to the city and well connected by public transport.
At the end of terminal 3, straight ahead after you exit from baggage reclaim, you will
find ticket booth and information about public transport. You will need a 3-zone ticket to
get to central copenhagen. You have two choices:

- Take the metro to Nørreport St. or take the regional trains to Copenhagen central station.
- Then take the S-trains or buses to get to your hotel or the institute.

The Metro is found at the end of terminal 3, and regional trains beneath terminal 3.

Public transport:
At Rejseplanen you will find a public transport travel planner. At the bottom of the page you can switch to English.

You can walk to the institute from Østerport St. or from Nordhavn St. You can also take bus line 3A from Nordhavn which stops right in front of the Niels Bohr Institute.

Tickets are valid on all public transport (bus,train,metro,harbourbuses).
It is a good idea to buy a "Klippekort"(ten tickets in one) as they will almost halve the price.
Remember to get your ticket stamped.

Transportation:

Why not get around Copenhagen like a real Copenhagener. Many hotels offers bike rental, but it is often
quite expensive.  Instead you can rent them at half the price at bike shops:
