Public transport. A detailed plan with time, connection and platform information can be retrieved using the official Journey Planner. Enter CPH Lufthavn as your starting point and Erling Jensens Vej 1, 3000 Helsingør as your destination. You can buy tickets at the ‘DSB ticket office’ in Terminal 3 or you can install the DOT Tickets App on your cell phone.

Helsingør Station can be reached by train from Copenhagen. Trains bound for Helsingør leave every 20 min. From the airport (CPH Lufthavn) to the central station (Københavns Hovedbanegård or København H), there is a direct train connection. Alternatively, you can take the airport Metro line (M2) and change line to the central station (M3 or M4) at Kongens Nytorv Metro station, or you can take the airport line directly to Nørreport combined Metro and train station and change to the Helsingør train connection. 

The train ride from the central station to Helsingør Station is 45 min. At Helsingør Station you can catch a city bus to Hellebo Park bus stop, which is an 8 min ride, and you can then walk to the Konventum venue location (400 m).

Alternatively, to the bus ride you can hail a taxi in front of Helsingør Station or at the back of the station at 'Kims Corner'. It is possible to phone Dantaxi around the clock, order online or install their app.

Car. It takes about 60 minutes by car from Copenhagen City Hall Square to the Konventum venue location.
