How to get to Odense

From plane to train:

Most international flights to Denmark arrive at Copenhagen Airport. Should you choose a flight to Billund or any other Danish airport please check airport information on how to get from there to your destination.

On arriving at Copenhagen Airport, you will need to take a train to Odense.

There is an Express Train directly from the CPH arrival terminal to Odense Central Station, and the Conference Venue is a 10 minute walk from the station. 

On arriving you pass through customes and into the arrival area at terminal (3). Walk straight ahead, and you will see the signs to the railway tracks. 

A direct train leaves Copenhagen on average twice an hour. An Express train with a travel time of approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes and none-express trains with a travel time of close to 2 hours. Departure times vary so check at Rejseplanen

On entering the tracks, choose Direction Copenhagen. The Train will say Direction Aalborg, Aarhus, Sønderborg or Esbjerg. 

If you just miss your train, you can take any train to Copenhagen Central Station and change trains here. That will give you more options.

 

Instructions for buying your train tickets

You can buy your ticket in advance on the internet: Rejseplanen or at the counter before entering the tracks. 

If you buy the ticket at the airport, ask at the counter whether it needs to be date stamped on the platform before you get on the train.

If you buy a print-out ticket online in advance you have to show the credit card with which you bought the ticket as a verification on the train.

You can reserve a seat on the train, or not. It is generally not required. If you do reserve a seat, that seat reservation is only good for the one train you reserved it for, but the ticket can be used on an earlier or later train on the same route. Some trains are completely full, and then a reservation is needed if you want to sit. Many trains, especially in the middle of the day, are not full, and reservations are not needed. You can always stand if you want to. 

 

Instructions for riding Danish trains

The Danish system of numbering train cars is confusing when you first arrive. Your reservation may say that you are in car 31. This does not mean the 31st car, but first part of the third car. It generally goes 11, 12, 21, 22, 31, etc.

When you get on the train, there will be little digital displays on the bottom of the luggage rack above each seat. These let you know if the seat is reserved or not. If it is not reserved, it will say, “kan være reserveret.” Which means “Can be reserved”. This tells you that someone else may be reserving that seat at that very moment. It can happen that you sit in an unreserved seat and someone reserves it at the last minute, and then gets on and asks you to move, even though the display has not been updated and still says, ” kan være reserveret.” If it was reserved in advance, it will say on the display which stops it is reserved from and to.

Opening the internal doors on Danish trains is easy once you know how to do it. A motion sensor just above the sliding door detects horizontal movement parallel to the door. Moving a hand horizontally along the door will open the door. Gesticulating wildly will also work, as long as you are within a few centimeters of the door.

Danish Trains occasionally leave a few minutes early if the platform has emptied. Buses are more likely to be ahead of schedule. Get there a bit early.

Once you are aware of the above points, the Danish train system works remarkably well. It is clean, friendly, safe and efficient. Trains on common routes are very frequent.

Getting help

Do not hesitate to ask for help. Danes will usually be friendly and helpful, and almost all Danes speak some English if you have trouble communicating in Scandinavian.
