How to find: Cab-inn Scandinavia

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):

  • Press the STOP button after the bus leaves the bus terminal at the central station, unless someone else does.
  • Leave the bus at the City Hall square (Rådhuspladsen), and change to one of
    linedestination
    2Brønshøj Torv
    11Bellahøj
    The buses go every 10 minutes or closer.
    Bus 11 stops at the bus stop where you got off 250S. Bus 2 has its own stop in area B just outside restaurant Vesuvio.
    Show your stamped blue card to the driver when you enter the bus.
  • The bus ride takes only a few minutes. Pres STOP when the bus crosses the Lakes.
  • When you leave the bus, you'll be directly across the street from the beginning of Vodroffsvej. Walk a few hundred meters down Vodroffsvej and find the hotel on the left side.

From the hotel to the conference site

  • Leave the hotel about 35 minutes before you want to arrive at the conference site.
  • Walk back to the same bus stop where you got off the bus when you arrived. Take the bus further away from the city center:
    linedestination
    2Brønshøj Torv
    11Bellahøj
    The buses go about every 10 minutes or closer.
    If you spot one of the following buses approching on the embankment between the lakes, see if you have time to cross the Åboulevard to the other bus stop:
    linedestination
    8Tingbjerg
    12Islev
    13Rødovre Centrum
    The spacing between these buses varies.
  • In either case, stamp your blue card once as you enter the bus. The bus ride takes a few minutes. Here's where to get off this time:

  • Press the STOP button at the right time, and leave the bus at Jagtvej. Change to
    linedestination
    18Nordhavn st.
    Buses go every 10 minutes on weekdays, less often in weekends.
    Show your stamped blue card to the driver when entering the bus.
  • The bus ride takes 7-10 minutes. Again, press the STOP button at the right time, and leave the bus at Lersø Parkalle.
  • If you timed your exit correctly, you'll be at the bus stop marked "Bus 18 from Frederiksberg" on this campus diagram:

  • FLoC is in the building marked "HCØ" on the diagram. Whether there will be signs (displaying the FLoC logo) leading from the bus 18 bus stop is still not decided.

  • Alternative route. The above directions relies on your being alert enough to find the right place to exit the bus. Since there are no really unmistakeable landmarks to show the right point, you may want a more foolproof option. In that case you can take bus 3 and 42/43/150/184/285, as described in the directions for Cab Inn Copenhagen.

When going back to the hotel:

Take the same buses in reverse order (except that you'll have to choose between 2/11 and 8/12/13 in advance). To go into the city center, take any bus from the bus stop outside DIKU.
