Accommodation in Copenhagen

LARM Conference takes place out of season and it should not be a problem to find accommodation in various price ranges in Copenhagen. Generally the prices are a bit higher in Copenhagen than in most other cities, but if you book in advance cheaper prices may be obtained.

Below we have pasted Wikitravel’s descriptions of various districts in Copenhagen. It quite well sums up the atmospheres.

Indre By (public transport: 25 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 40 minutes)
Centrum, The Medieval city – a place of many names, but it is the historical heart of Copenhagen, dotted with church spires, historic buildings, narrow alleys and excellent shopping.

Christianshavn (metro: 10 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 20 minutes)
Originally laid out as a working class neighbourhood 300 years ago, it is now a thriving area notable for its many canals. The Freetown of Christiania is situated in the eastern section of Christianshavn, along with the old naval area, turned trendy: Holmen.

 (public transport: 30 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 40 minutes)
This district has evolved tremendously in recent years and is now one of the hippest places to live, with cafes and bars dotted along its main artery,Istedgade.

Frederiksberg (public transport: 20 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 1 hour)
A small town which originally formed around Frederiksberg castle, this area is still a separate municipality. Literally surrounded by the City of Copenhagen, it has preserved a special conservative, upscale feel.

Nørrebro (public transport: 25 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 50 minutes)
One of the most vibrant parts of Copenhagen, especially along the main artery, Nørrebrogade, with a mix of immigrants, students, and original working-class Nørrebro-inhabitants.

Østerbro (public transport: 35 minutes to LARM Conference, walk: 1 hour)
A cozy neighbourhood north of the center. Less vibrant than Nørrebro and Vesterbro, and less quaint than Frederiksberg, it is the home of the famous Little Mermaid statue, and the beautifully preserved Kastellet citadel. The area west of the train track is very popular with young families with small children to live in.

Amager (Amager is where LARM Conference takes place, yet there can be up to 1 hour transport to the University, depending on where on the island you are staying)
Once a bastion of the working class, this island with its own distinct atmosphere is booming with new development. Also home of the airport.
