More information on getting to and from the airport.

Easy to get around

Copenhagen CityCopenhagen is a compact city with a well-planned network of public transportation, making it easy for visitors to get around. The city is served by a Metro system, local S-trains (red), and buses, and connected by regional trains to points beyond the metropolitan area.

Most hotels, restaurants, sights and shops are within walking distance. Unlike any other European capital city, Copenhagen has no traffic problems and no congestion, so minimal travel times between any of the locations in and around the city can be guaranteed. Swift and easy transport is available between Copenhagen Airport, Copenhagen Business School and the city centre.

Public transport in Copenhagen and surroundings is comfortable, efficient and safe. It is easy to get around and to transfer between buses, harbour buses, trains and the metro - all on the same ticket.

The Metro

Copenhagen MetroCBS Venue is located on the metro line, and all hotels are easily reached by Metro.

The Metro’s fully automated trains link parts of the Danish capital in a new way. There is now an effective and fast link between the large urban areas from east to west, with the city centre acting as the hub. The Metro operates around the clock. During peak periods trains run every 90 seconds from stations above and below ground level.

The high quality public transportation system, consisting of the metro, buses and trains, connects the centre with its suburbs and the airport (a mere 20-minute ride). With the metro, CBS is easily accessible – four minutes from the city centre with three metro stations serving the CBS Campus.

Bike

Copenhagen Bike

Besides public transportation in Copenhagen there are other options as well. In the centre of town you can rent a bike through different stands. This type of bike is known as bycyklen. You need DKK 20 to rent the bike and there is no limit to how long you can use it. You need to stay in the inner city and cannot use the bike to and from CBS, you lock the bike by returning it to one of the many stands. In the centre of town you can also hail a Rickshaw to take you around the city in a more relaxed fashion.

Walking

Copenhagen was the first city to introduce pedestrian streets and many visitors find walking an enjoyable and relaxed way of getting around. Most attractions in the city centre are located close to each other, and since Copenhagen is a safe city, walking is an attractive option.

 

Social Programme

Thursday, 19 November

19.30                  Welcome Reception
                           Porcelaenshaven (CBS campus), Klin Hall

Porcelænshaven - Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory
Porcelænshaven - Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory

Located at the corner of Smallegade and Søndre Fasanvej, bordering Frederiksberg Have, you find Porcelænshaven. The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory has been converted and refurbished to provide the premises for education and research. Owned by FUHU (the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education), which leases Porcelænshaven and the Råvarebygning to CBS, the buildings of Porcelænshaven and the Råvarebygning have a total of approximately 20,000 sqm.

Porcelænshaven - Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory 2The Factory has existed since 1882 and created the framework. After the relocation of the production there is now more room for other activities. 19,000 sq.m of the old factory have been converted into classrooms and administrative offices. The rest of Porcelænshaven is intended for houses, and student life is, therefore, an integrated part of the residential area. The major part of the refurbishment of the factory buildings was completed in 2005 - and CBS' units and departments started to take up residence.

The second phase of the project included renovation and refurbishment of the Kiln Hall. The old kiln hall of The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory, which is 1,000 sq.m, now serves as a main hall with a cafeteria, which makes the area suitable for larger events. Apart from that, the Kiln Hall also houses classrooms and a fitness room.

The third phase is the refurbishment of the 3,000 sqm Råvarebygning, which is expected to be completed during the summer of 2009. Henning Larsen Architects has been chosen to rebuild the Råvarebygning, which will house modern teaching and research communities with classrooms, offices and meeting rooms.

Friday, 20 November

                          The Danish National Gallery - Sculpture Street

Statens Museum For Kunst 

Statens Museum For Kunst logo

The old museum building dates back to 1896 and was designed by the architect Vilhelm Dahlerup. This building reflects the exuberant joy - so typical of the period - taken in mixing several historical styles. This is most clearly evident from the richly decorated facade and the imposing entrance, which makes for a solemn transition from the outside world into the museum collections.

Statens Museum For KunstUntil the 1960s, a huge staircase dominated the Entrance Hall. Here, museum visitors could ascend to the first floor, which was devoted to paintings. The ground floor presented the museum's collection of plaster casts of historical sculptures. Today, this particular aspect of the museum has its own exhibition venue: the Royal Cast Collection in Toldbodgade, near the Royal Palace of Amalienborg.

The museum was short of space from the very beginning. It was not until 1970, however, that the amount of floor space available for exhibitions was increased. This was done by roofing two atrium wells in the middle of the museum.  

Statens Museum For Kunst 2

The 1998 extension has provided the museum with a significant - and much-needed - increase in the exhibition space available. The magnificent, modernist extension building is situated in parallel with Dahlerup's old museum, opening the house up towards the surrounding parkland. The architect Anna Maria Indrio from the major Danish firm of architects "C.F. Møllers tegnestue" created the new architecture. The two widely different buildings are separate entities, yet linked by a glass-roofed Sculpture Street, with footbridges connecting the first floors. The two buildings meet and merge in a single fluid movement while also clearly demarcating their distinctive characters and the architectural differences between them.
