The meeting venue is Kosmopol, located in central Copenhagen at the following address:
DK-1171 København K
The meeting venue is conveniently located close to Nørreport station, the largest public transport hub in Copenhagen. Follow these directions:
From Copenhagen Airport (CPH):
Take Metro M2 for a 15-min ride to Nørreport station. From there, it is only a 2-min. walk to Kosmopol.
From the Central Station (København H):
Take any northbound S-train from platforms 9-10 (lines A, B, C, E, or H) and get off at the second stop, Nørreport station. From there, it is only a 2-min. walk to Kosmopol.
Single fare: DKK 36 (3 zones) from the Airport, DKK 24 (2 zones) from the Central Station. You can use the same ticket for all means of transportation within the ticket's validity period. Sharing a 10-trip discount "clip card'' (DKK 145 for 2 zones, DKK 190 for 3 zones) might be a good option if you travel in a group or intend to stay longer. Alternatively, you may want to invest in a City Pass, valid in all central zones including the airport for 24 hours (DKK 75) or 72 hours (DKK 190). For more fare and schedule info, visit www.journeyplanner.dk or www.movia.dk.
Please note that regional, InterCity and international trains do NOT stop at Nørreport until April 2014 due to renovation of the station. Use S-train, metro, or bus instead.
We have arranged a special rate for all INSPIRE Winter School attendees at Hotel Twentyseven (www.hotel27.dk), located at the following address:
DK-1468 København K
- Single room w/ one single bed: DKK 795 (ca. EUR 107)
- Double room w/ one double bed: DKK 995 (ca. EUR 133)
The above rates are valid between January 28 and February 1, 2014. They include complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi internet access. Room reservations at these rates can be made directly via DTU by registering online for the meeting. Rooms may be canceled free of charge up to December 29. Cancellation fees may apply after this date.
If you are on a budget, the youth hostel Danhostel Copenhagen Downtown (member of Hostelling International) is located right next to Hotel Twentyseven at the following address:
DK-1467 København K
The hostel has dormitories as well as private or shared rooms with or without bathroom amenities. For more information and bed reservations, visit www.copenhagendowntown.com.
It is an approx. 11-min. walk from Hotel Twentyseven or the hostel to the meeting venue.
The hotel is located within walking distance of metro stations Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport, and of Copenhagen Central Station (København H).
We kindly ask you to register for the Winter School and/or the Meeting before December 15, 2013. Registration will remain possible after that date. However, hotel room availability and rates will not be guaranteed anymore. The reason for this is that the Copenhagen Fashion Fair is taking place at the same time as our INSPIRE event. Accommodation in central Copenhagen is thus in high demand and prices may rise quickly. We therefore advise you to register online before December 15 or to book alternative accommodation as early as possible.
