Getting around Copenhagen is easy. The CPH:DOX Festival Centre at Kunsthal Charlottenborg is located in the very centre of Copenhagen and in walking distance from the hotels and most of the cinemas and venues.


Getting around in Copenhagen

Public transportation
Copenhagen has a very efficient and reliable public transport infrastructure. Buses, metro and S-trains can take you everywhere in the city centre within a short period of time – also at night.

On (also available as an app) you can type in your journey and it will show you the fastest and easiest way to get to your destination. You can also download Rejseplanen as an app for your smartphone – and yes, you can choose English as a language!

Tickets can be bought both at the metro station, train station or on buses. You can also buy a ticket on your smartphone via the app DOT Mobilbilletter.

The metro station closest to the city centre and the CPH:DOX Festival Centre is Kongens Nytorv.

And with the new city bike rental system, bike renting has never been easier: locate a bike near you on the app and return to the pickup location when you’re done using it.

Getting here from the airport

From the airport to the city centre
Reaching Copenhagen’s city centre from Copenhagen Airport is quick and easy. Public transportation from both Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 are easy to spot. You can choose between taking the metro, train or taxi.

The metro is located above Terminal 3. All trains go in the same direction from the airport (M2 to Vanløse Station), so you don’t have to worry about catching the wrong metro train. It takes about 15-20 minutes to reach stations Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport Station which are located in the city centre of Copenhagen.

The train station is located underground in Terminal 3. The trains run every 10 minutes during the daytime and will get you to the Copenhagen Central Station (København H) in about 15 minutes. From Copenhagen Central Station you can easily get to many of the cinemas and venues during CPH:DOX.

Outside of Terminal 2 and 3, you can choose between several taxi companies which will quickly take you to the centre.

To reach Copenhagen’s city centre with public transportation from the airport, you must purchase a valid ticket for three ‘zones’. Tickets for both metro and trains are available in the ticket office and ticket vending machines located in Terminal 3.

It is not possible to buy a ticket once you have boarded the train or metro. Therefore, always buy a ticket before boarding. A valid ticket can be used in the metro, bus, train and harbour bus, as long as you do not pass through more zones than your ticket allows. To get around the centre you normally need a ticket for zones 1-2. Always bring your ticket with you in case of inspection, which happens rather frequently. Travelling without a valid ticket will result in a fine.

If you are planning to visit Copenhagen for several days, you may want to purchase a 24-hour ticket, a City Pass or a Rejsekort (Travel Card). Read more on the Metro website.
