... from the Airport

By Taxi: Taxi to the area costs about DKK 250 (Euro 34), while dropping off downtown costs you about DKK 200 (Euro 27).

By Public Transportation: The easiest way to get to the venue by public transportation is by metro to Nørreport Station (runs every 4-6 min, travelling time about 15 min), and then by busses 6A or 42 from Nørreport Station (see details below). You'll find ticket machines at the metro station and at the DSB (train station) counter at Terminal 3. The metro station is located at the end of Terminal 3. You need a three zone ticket, price: DKK 36 (Euro 4,82). If you are going downtown first, you can take bus no. 250 (express), or any train that goes to the main train station (KBH H), or bus no. 12 to the City Hall (Rådhus). Use the ticket machine, or buy a three zone ticket on the bus; price: DKK 36 (Euro 4,82). You can buy a ticket from the bus driver - only cash and not more than 100 DKK bills. Tickets for metro/bus/train are interchangeable.

...from Nørreport train/metro station

By Taxi: From downtown it costs about DKK 100 (Euro 13,40). Vacant cabs carry a sign with the word FRI (free) on display. Upon completion of your ride, cab drivers can provide you with a receipt upon request. Credit cards are welcomed in most taxis, but you should ask when you get in. Most cabbies understand English.

By Public Transportation: Take Bus 6A or 42 from Nørreport Station going toward Buddinge St. or Ballerup Station resepctively. Get off at Arresøgade (Tagensvej). Cobis is very close to the bus stop. The schedule for bus 6A can be found here and for bus 42 you cna see it here. You need a two-zone ticket (DKK 24 - Euro 3,25) to Cobis from Nørreport (or continue using your three-zone ticket if you are coming from the airport). There are ticket machines at all subways and train stations. Tickets can also be bought from the bus driver - only cash and not more than 100 DKK bills. Each zone ticket lasts for 30 minutes (three zones = 1.5 hours).

24-hour or 72-hour City Pass in zones 1-4

The City Pass gives you unlimited access to buses, trains, metro and harbour buses in zones 1, 2, 3 and 4, which includes the centre of Copenhagen and to and from the airport. An adult 24-hour City Pass costs DKK 80 and an adult 72-hour City Pass costs DKK 200. You can buy this ticket at the airport or station or have it delivered to your mobile number from http://www.citypass.dk/. This is by far the easiest solution.
