We are thrilled to welcome you to Kunsthal Charlottenborg, CPH:DOX’s magnificent Festival Center, a baroque palace, now serving as one of the most important Art Centres in Copenhagen. We are transforming Charlottenborg into an international festival mansion with two cinemas, a VR cinema, exhibitions, talks, parties, social events and much more.

From the airport to the city centre

Arrow down

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.

DOT Tickets

For just 30 DKK you can get a ticket, valid for 12 hours, granting you unlimited access to all the buses, trains, and metros within the greater Copenhagen area (including the airport). Tickets are sent by SMS or email and can already be booked before your arrival in Copenhagen. Click here to get your ticket!

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. The Eventbillet is valid within 4 zones. 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).
