Getting here

Copenhagen Contemporary is located on Refshaleøen.

The entrance to Copenhagen Contemporary is marked by a vertical sign “Art Center” and large, orange neon CC letters.

How to get here

By car

There are three accessible parking spaces right in front of CC’s main entrance.

There are many more parking spaces available in the area.

Please note that you have to buy a valid parking ticket.

By bike

It’s easy to reach CC by bike, just 10 minutes from Kgs. Nytorv.

The ride along the water takes you through a historic part of Copenhagen, which today houses the Opera House, the old naval fortifications of Holmen, Noma, and Refshaleøen’s green and rugged industrial surroundings.

By bus 2A

There is approximately 500 meters from the 2A bus stop.

At the T-junction in front of the bus stop, turn left. Then, turn right and continue straight for 250 meters.

By the Harbour Bus

You can take the Harbour Bus to Refshaleøen, which is a wonderful, easy, and relaxing way to see Copenhagen from the water.

From the harbor bus stop, walk along the pier on the paved path on the same side as where the harbor bus docks. Then, continue to the right around the yellow building at the end of the path. On the other side of this building, follow the parking spaces for cars for 250 meters.
