Conference venue – how to get there

The conference takes place at DTU main campus, building 116, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby – see in Google Maps

You can reach the DTU main campus by taxi or by public transportation. Several busses cross or pass the campus area, and Lyngby Station is just 2 km away with even more bus connections. 

From Nørreport Station in central Copenhagen, there are several transport options to the DTU Campus. Buses 15E and 150S run approx. every 10 minutes from Nørreport St. to Rævehøjvej, DTU (Helsingørmotorvejen) – a short walk from the venue. You can also go by S-train (line A) to Lyngby Station and take bus 300S or bus 181 to DTU (Anker Engelunds Vej).

Tickets for public transport can be purchased from Your Public Transport – DOT. It is possible to purchase a ‘Large City Pass’ for DKK 160 a day, which grants unlimited access to the Copenhagen area and to the DTU campus in Lyngby.

As a one-way ticket from the airport to the venue is approx. DKK 68, we recommend the city pass for its price and flexibility. Purchases are made in the ‘Your Public Transport’ app or at vending machines on the stations. You can read more at Your Public Transport.

The easiest way to go from the airport to central Copenhagen is by Metro.

Access the Journey Planner to see how to get to DTU with public transportation from the airport and the main stations of Copenhagen.
