Introduction

These pages will supply information about the cities the Stones will be visiting this summer. To read about each individual city please select the actual city link in the IORR travel guide pages. If you have information for these pages please send e-mail to [email protected].

Nearest big city

Copenhagen

How to get to the city

Landing at Copenhagen Airport : Theres a direct train connection every 20 minutes to the Central Station ( Hovedbanegrden ). About 15 minutes. Further information here : Copenhagen Airport

Traintravellers will arrive at the Central Station. Read more here : Copenhagen Central Station

Norwegian and Polish fans will probably arrive on the ferries from Oslo, Swinoujscie and Gdansk.. Right in the heart of Copenhagen. Near Nyhavn. Nyhavn

How to get to the venue

Most places in Copenhagen can easily be reached by simply walking around. But we buses, local trains and even a metro. Check out the ticket-system at ht.dk Click on 'tourist'. Be sure to buy a 'discount card' - in Danish iBlt klippekort'. For 95 DKK you get 10 travels with public transport in the two inner zones ( including 'Parken' ). These cards cannot be bought in the buses, but you can buy them at stations and in various kiosks. Beware that major route-changes are taking place from May 25th. This is very important if you think you already know the lines to Parken. So you can use the following from the city-center : Line 1A heading towards 'Hellerup', Line 14 towards 'Svanemllen' and Line 15 towards 'Ryparken'. Bus nos 3 and 18 are also possible, but not from the city-center. And do not worry : There are lots of public transport also after the concert.

Travel information

Almost everybody speaks English in Denmark, so dont worry about not understanding how to get to Parken. Parken location shows you how Parken is situated. Dont worry. You wont be late. Except if youre driving a car to the venue. Like almost everywhere else parking can cause a problem and may be quite expensive. Take a look at the official information in English here : Parken English Guide

Venue maps

Recommended hotels

First of all you will like to find a place to stay. If youre on a low budget this is the place to stay : http://www.sleep-in.dk/ Its decent, clean and only 200 metres away from Parken. If money isnt your first concern, then be sure to book this hotel : http://www.admiral-hotel.dk/default.aspx?s=4 Its situated at the harbour near Nyhavn, the most beautiful part of the city centre - and you may even walk ( 30 minutes ) to Parken from this hotel. The restaurant there is excellent. Fans from Norway coming by boat will have to walk only 50 metres from the ferry. A very fine hotel with a direct bus to Parken ( approx. 40 minutes ) can be found here : http://www.hotel-memory.dk/ A mid-price hotel situated in what used to be the red-light district can be found here : http://www.aok.dk/E/V/CPHDK/0006/40/52/3.html This area - Vesterbro/Copenhagen V. - is a very nice place to stay in. Nice restaurants, bars etc. Almost part of the city center. Direct bus to Parken ( 30 minutes ). If youre still not satisfied, then look here : http://www.hotels-in-denmark.dk/copenhagen-hotels-denmark.asp or http://www.arp-hansen.dk/index.html The Rolling Stones will - if they stay in Copenhagen - most likely stay here : http://www.remmen.dk/dangleterre/index.htm

Recommended bars/restaurants

Just before the concert you may end up here five minutes away from Parken : McGrath's Irish Pub

This could be the place to meet before the concert. Or you may want to eat as well close to Parken, then its here : Park Cafe

Its almost impossible to write about resaturants. Drinking a beer or two can be done everywhere, but a few very good places have to be mentioned :

Also check out the following address I Byen - a nice web-site only in Danish. Well, simply see Nyhavn
