Getting to Aarhus:

Three options if you arrive by airplane

  • Aarhus Airport, Tirstrup (AAR) The airport situated closest to Aarhus, but it's small and has only few connections. Transportation time to the city of Aarhus is approximately 45 minutes by bus.
  • Billund Airport (BLL) A slightly bigger airport, with more connections. The transportation time by bus is approximately one hour and a half to the city of Aarhus.
  • Copenhagen Airports (CPH) A large airport with lots of connections. You can continue to Aarhus by domestic flight, train or bus. Flight time to Aarhus Airport is 40 minutes, but train is often easier. The direct train from Copenhagen Airport to central Aarhus is about three and a half hours.

Trains in Denmark are operated by DSB. You can buy tickets online or in the ticket machines at each station. Tickets must be purchased before you get on the train. Get off at Aarhus H.

If you need to cross the country by bus you can either use Flix Bus or Abildskou.

The hotel:

The hotel is just a short walk from both the train and bus terminal. If possible, get off at the Train station for the shortest walk. A single room has been booked for you at Wake Up Aarhus, M. P. Bruuns Gade 27, DK-8000 Aarhus C.

Getting to the department:

To get to the CS department from downtown Aarhus, take a local bus (number 2A or 13 to Vanggaard Centret or Storcenter Nord) - or walk and enjoy the lovely weather that we (almost) always have in Aarhus. Department of Computer Science, Aabogade 34, 8200 Aarhus N.
