Transportation and Getting to CIS

Here is a map of the DSB train system in the Copenhagen Area for the Daytime of Weekdays.

Please note that train routes and schedules may differ in the night and during the Weekends.

The use of Rejseplannen is recommended.

From the airport:  The best way from the airport into the city is using the metro. Tickets can be purchased from the transit company (DSB) at the airport and it takes approximately 20-25 minutes to get directly downtown. Here is a link for information from the airport.  Within the city, the ideal way to get around is by S-Trains; the simplest way is to switch from the metro to the S-Train at Nørreport station.


To plan your route and find the train/bus numbers please visit “rejseplanen” (available in English). For information on ticket options and how to buy them please visit this website.


To the school: The best option at the moment (used by our students/staff) will be to take transit to the S-Train station called Nordhavn and walk from there (walking map).  


Once the school has booked a hostel/hotel, we are happy to provide exact details on transport from the hotel to the school. Please email
