During ICANN58, ICANN will have 24/7 resources on the ground to help with any questions, concerns and situations – whether medical, security or logistical.

BEFORE YOU TRAVEL


MEDICAL
Before traveling, consult with a travel health professional about any medical preparations required.
Make sure that you have an adequate supply of any regular medications. Work with your health professional to determine if your medications are available in Denmark, and if not, any alternate medications you can take if your medications are lost or stolen. Always carry your medications in your carry-on baggage. Food and tap water are safe to consume throughout the country.

PASSPORT
Make color copies of your passport and visa (if applicable) and carry them with you in a separate location from the originals. It's also a good idea to leave a copy with someone at home.

STAYING IN COPENHAGEN

AIRPORT (CPH)
Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (CPH) is located on Amager Island, a ten-minute drive east from the Bella Center and a 15-minute drive south-east from the city-center. It is a world-class airport with money-changing counters, ATMs and free Wi-Fi. Stores and restaurants are generally open until 10:00 pm. The Copenhagen Metro system has a train station at Terminal 3, which can be used to catch an M2 train into the city.

In the event of adverse weather or any other developments causing disruption at Copenhagen Airport, travelers may instead be able to fly to Malmö Airport (MMX), located around 50km to the east in neighboring Sweden, and then drive into Copenhagen.

LANGUAGE
Danish is the official language. However, the vast majority of Danes also speak English – especially hotel and airline staff.

MONEY
Denmark's currency is the krone (DKK). Banks typically offer the best currency conversion rates, though using a hotel or exchange desk may be more convenient. Some banks and most major hotels accept traveler's checks. ATMs are widespread and bank/credit cards are widely accepted. Most establishments accept major credit cards such as MasterCard and Visa, with American Express and Diners Club accepted to a lesser extent. Please note that some vendors may not accept cards that do not have a security chip.

TIPPING
Tipping is completely optional in Denmark, although locals may opt to leave up to 10% in tips, particularly if a service charge is not included in the bill. Generally speaking, nobody will take issue with a traveler who does not leave a tip.

TRANSPORTATION
Copenhagen has a small but highly effective metro system with two lines: M1 travels between the city center and the Bella Center, while the M2 runs between the city center and the airport. Trains run continuously, 24/7. Buses and waterbuses are also available and suitable for foreign travelers. More information is available on the Metro and DOT websites. The city center is very walkable, while the area around the Bella Center is more suburban and movement to and from the venue is likely better served by public transport or taxi.

Taxis are safe and reliable modes of transportation; available taxis can be identified by the lit up "Fri" sign behind the windscreen.
                                                                                           
TRAVEL SAFETY GUIDANCE

  • As with most major European cities, there is a low but credible threat posed by terrorism; travelers should maintain standard security awareness and report any suspicious packages or behavior to the police.
  • Keep an eye on your belongings and maintain heightened security awareness in touristic sites and crowded transit facilities to deter opportunistic crimes such as pickpocketing or bag snatching.
  • We recommend carrying a mobile telephone programmed with useful and emergency contact numbers, including the ICANN Health and Safety Center numbers (see above). Also record the numbers on paper, or grab a copy of the ICANN58 Health and Safety tri-fold pamphlet as well.
  • While Copenhagen is a safe city for female travelers, we recommend taking standard security precautions, such as traveling with at least one companion after dark and not leaving drinks unattended.
