Getting around

The fastest and most convenient way of getting around is the Metro. The station closest to the SSF harbour is ‘Øresund’, a pleasant 10 minutes’ walk from your boat. Trains run very frequently and a 7 minutes’ ride brings you to Kongens Nytorv in the very center of Copenhagen, where you find the famous shopping street ‘Strøget’, the Royal Theatre, Nyhavn, and a lot of fancy bars and restaurants.
Riding the Metro in the opposite direction from Øresund will take you to Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes.
