Accommodation

Delegates will have to make their own arrangements regarding accommodation. An ideal location for accommodation is around the Kongens Nytorv area of Copenhagen (or Royal Theatre - Det Kongelige Teater in Danish), only two stops from the conference centre by Metro and an area central for restaurants, shops and bars.

Accommodation in Copenhagen can be relatively expensive. General bookings can be arranged via websites such as the Wonderful Copenhagen official tourism website. Take a look there and peruse the list of hotels below. Any one of them should cover your need.

Finally, for the budget-conscious

Danhostel Copenhagen City. H. C. Andersens Boulevard 50 – 1553 Copenhagen V.
Very affordable and centrally located, though not near Kongens Nytorv. Danhostel is within walking distance of the conference and commands a great view of the city centre – esp. if your room is high up. In case of no vacancy, another Danhostel is found on Vesterbrogade 39, 1 – 1620 København V.

Standard Single from DKK 420 (€56), per room per night.

Transport (trains, buses, metro)

Kastrup is Copenhagen's international airport. There are numerous budget flight services to Kastrup, as well as to Malmö (Sweden), which is linked to Copenhagen by road bridge. Trains run around the clock between Malmö and Copenhagen central. Sea links to Copenhagen are available, too, from the Baltic region, as well as rail. 

The conference will be held at the:
Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies
University of Copenhagen
Njalsgade 128, DK-2300 Copenhagen S

Metro: Whether en route to the city centre from the airport or in order to get around locally (including to and from the conference venue), the metro is a handy option. The university is close to the Islands Brygge stop (an 8 minutes' walk); see the green M1-line below. "Lufthavnen", meaning "the Airport", is the terminal stop on the yellow M2-line.


How to find us
Show location on map

Again, the easiest way to get to the conference location is via the Metro. It is safe, clean and reliable. The nearest stop to the conference is “Island's Brygge” - two stops from Kongens Nytorv, which takes only minutes. Single tickets can be purchased at the metro stations.
Tickets for the Metro usually include travel on buses, trains and dock waterway "buses".
Alternatively, you can purchase a 24-hour ticket, priced DKK 130 (€17) and valid for one day on any public transport in the entire city area. These are available via SMS and from the Central Station, some kiosks and newsagents. Ask you hotel for details.
