Accommodation

Hotels in Denmark are generally rather expensive. We recommend the following accommodations:

Wakeup Copenhagen Borgergade ($$-$$$$). Centrally located, right between the beautiful King’s Garden and the old dock Kongens Nytorv. The hotel offers a choice between ‘Cheap or flexible reservation’, ‘Room with a view’, and a ‘Room with extra space’.

Copenhagen Plaza ($$$$). A very elegant hotel in the city center, not least for its famous Library Bar. It is within walking distance from the university and located opposite the main train station, making it easy to get to and from the airport.

Hotel Kong Arthur ($$$$). Next to Copenhagen’s lakes, and also right by Nørreport station in the city centre. From both Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport you can catch a metro to the university and to the airport.

Aside from these options, hostels offer more budget-friendly solutions. We recommend:

Generator Copenhagen. A very popular hostel in the city center at Kongens Nytorv Square, just 5 min from Kongens Nytorv Metro Station.

Sleep in Heaven. In a very hip part of town and with a cozy atmosphere. Bus nr. 12 will take you right from the hostel to the university.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel. In the city center is a cool and energetic place to stay. Price includes a free (but crowded!) dinner each night.

Sightseeing

If you have an extra day to spend in Copenhagen, there are a number of museums and sightseeing spots for you to visit. The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek has a famous Egyptian collection, as well as a Classical wing and a French collection that includes some noted works by Rodin (complimentary tickets included with conference registration). Just next to it, the National Museum also has an Egyptian and a Mesopotamian collection, but is most famous for its exhibition on Danish antiquity from the Stone to the Viking Age. The David Collection is one of the largest European collections of Islamic art, covering the 8th through the 19th century. Finally, the Canal Tours will take you on a tour of the Copenhagen harbor, including the Little Mermaid, the Opera House, the parliament (“Borgen”) and the Black Diamond, the Danish royal library.
