How to find: Cab-inn Copenhagen

From the airport to the hotel

  • After clearing customs at the airport, proceed straight ahead for about 100 m. Your path will be blocked by the staircase leading to platform 1 of the railway station. Circumnavigate the staircase and you will be at the "Train tickets" counter.
  • Buy a blue discount card for DKK 90. If there's a long line and you have a Visa card you can also buy your blue card in the red vending machine next to the Track 1 escalators. The "Klippekort 2 zoner" button should produce a blue card.
    (At least there's a poster in Danish that claims that the machine accepts Visa. The instructions on the machine does not repeat this claim, and we haven't tried with an actual non-Danish Visa card).
  • Go to the public bus stop area in front of Terminal 2. Close to the Terminal 2 main entrance you find the bus stop for
    linedestination
    250SBuddinge st. -or- Københavns Rådhusplads
    Buses go every 10 minutes until about 1900, then every 20 minutes until midnight.
    Stamp your blue card twice (face towards you) in the yellow machine just inside the front doors of the bus.
  • The bus ride takes about 30-35 minutes. Memoize this map sketch so you can find the right place to get off the bus (or bring a hardcopy if you're a quitter):
