Getting to Denmark/Copenhagen
Copenhagen is served by Copenhagen Airport (CPH). For a list of all flights to Copenhagen Airport (CPH), see their website. Airlines serving Copenhagen include Scandinavian and Sterling. For train/bus connections within Denmark, use Rejseplanen (Route Planner). For train connections within Europe, try German railways DB Bahn.
Getting to Panum
Getting to Panum from Copenhagen Airport by public transportation:
Take the Metro (look for the big M) from the Airport to Nørreport Station (10-15 minutes). The Metro departs every 4-6 minutes.
Ordinary trains departs from the airport Terminal 3 every 10-20 minutes. Nørreport Station is just after the central station "København H" (4 stops, 15 minutes) in the direction Copenhagen/Helsingør - the opposite (wrong!) direction is Malmö/Sweden.
Nørreport Station is in central Copenhagen; most hotels are nearby, and the Panum Institute is easily reached by bus. The details are given below.
You need to buy a ticket in the airport terminal before boarding the train (otherwise, you could be fined). Read more about tickets below.
Arriving by Inter-City Train
If you arrive by Inter-City train to Copenhagen, the final stop will usually be the central station København H; take one of the very frequent local trains to Nørreport station (2 stops by S-train), and follow the directions from there (your Inter-City ticket is valid for this as well).
From Nørreport Station to Panum
Locate the bus stop of the busses 185, 150S and 6A (it is in the northern part of the station area, on the same side of the road as the exits for the S-train). All three busses have Nørreport as their final stop, so there is no question of direction. Ask the driver to drop you off at “Rigshospitalet Syd (Tagensvej)”. The Panum Institute is the big red brick building across the street.
Arriving by Taxi
A taxi from the airport to the Panum Institute or hotels costs approx. 300 DKK (40 EUR). A taxi from Nørreport Station to the Panum Institute or hotels costs <100DKK.
You can use the route planner to find out how to get to the Panum Institute by public transportation.
Tickets for Public Transportation
General tickets for public transport
All busses and trains (incl. metro) use the same ticket system, so only one ticket is needed for a journey by bus and train. It is 3 zones from the airport to Copenhagen/the Panum Institute. From the hotels to the Panum Institute it is only 1 zone, but you cannot by tickets for less than 2 zones. Buy tickets in the bus (cash only, preferably exact change) or at ticket stands/machines at the train stations. Or buy via your mobile phone. Read about buying tickets here.
If you plan on taking the bus several times during your stay, it might be cheaper to use a travel card (Rejsekort) than buying single tickets.
The City Pass gives you unlimited access to buses, trains and metro in the centre of Copenhagen and to and from the airport (zones 1, 2, 3 and 4). You can buy a 24-hour or a 72-hour City Pass. The FlexCard allows you unlimited travel by bus, train and Metro for seven days in the number of zones you pay for. If you want to visit some of Copenhagen's attractions, you should consider a Copenhagen Card, which entitles you to unlimited bus, metro, and train travel and gives you a discount or free entrance to many major attractions.
