Travelling from the Airport

By Taxi:  Taxi to the area costs about DKK 350 (€ 47), while dropping off downtown costs  about DKK 250 (€ 34). The tip is included in the price.

By Public Transportation

The easiest way to get to Rockefeller by public transportation is by metro to Nørreport Station (runs every 4-6 min – traveling time about 15 min), and then by bus from Nørreport Station. You'll find ticket-automats at the metro station and at the DSB (train station) counter at Terminal 3. The metro station is located at the end of Terminal 3. You need a three-zone ticket, price: DKK 36 (€ 4.80). The ticket is valid on the metro, train and bus for 1.5 hours.


If you are going downtown first, you can take bus no. 250 (express), or any train that goes to the main train station (KBH H), or bus no. 12 to the City Hall (Rådhus).

Traveling from Downtown/Nørreport

By Taxi: From downtown to Rockefeller it costs about DKK 90 (€12). Vacant cabs carry a sign with the word FRI (free) on display. Upon completion of your ride, cab drivers can provide you with a receipt upon request. Credit cards are welcomed in most taxis, but you should ask when you get in. Most cabbies understand English.  

By Public Transportation: Bus no. 150S, 173E, 184, 185, 42 or 6A from Nørreport Station going north/west. Get off at Nørre Campus (5 minutes). The Rockefeller Complex (Juliane Maries vej) is a short walk north up Nørre Allé from bus stops.

You need a three-zone ticket (36 DKK - € 4.80) from the airport, or a two-zone ticket (24 DKK - € 3.20) to the Rockefeller Complex from Nørreport. There are ticket-automats at all subways and train stations. Tickets can also be bought from the bus driver (only cash payment). Each zone-ticket lasts for 30 minutes (three zones = 1.5 hours).

Traveling from Rockefeller to HCØ

The experimental condensed matter part of the Center for Quantum Devices is located at the H.C. Ørsted Insitute (Universitetsparken 5). Consequently it is often necessary to walk from the Rockefeller Complex to The H.C. Ørsted Institute along the route marked in red on the map.

Danish cash

A bank service is available in the baggage claim area and to the left when you exit customs in Terminal 3. There are also cash withdrawal machines (ATM) there, and in the street (outside of banks) in many places in Downtown Copenhagen; look for a sign that says KONTANT (cash).
