  1. Denmark is shut down completely for tourists for now. It's simply not a valid reason to enter the country. No cruise ships will arrive for now. These restriction will stay in place AT LEAST until April 13th. You can get the updated information from the Danish authorities here: https://politi.dk/en/coronavirus-in-denmark
  2. There is no programme out yet, but usually the street party on Vesterbro is on Thursday afternoon/evening during the festival. There will be disturbances like noice, drunk young people roaming around etc. But it depends very much on your exact location. I live close to the event on Nørrebro and is not affected very much, it's easy to avoid. But people who live just above a stage feel differently. There is music at various small stages on Istedgade, Sønder Boulevard usually, but they generally close down at midnight. The festival has become better at managing noice and garbage though, so the neighbourhood should be back to normal the next morning. Distortion usually also has other events during the festival, like classical concerts, stuff for kids etc, so the programme is worth checking out even for you. And most of it is free. On June 5th, some museums and many shops are closed. Restaruants are open. Just plan ahead and check opening hours beforehand, you will find a lot of stuff to do on June 5th as well.
  3. Until the metro company announces an opening date, I wouldn't be all that confident about when it opens. The city circle line was delayed and so test runs and other things relating to the Nordhavn line will also be delayed because of that. It might open in spring 2020, but we don't know yet.
  4. If there is space enough for it in the trunk it's fine. There are no formal limits, only practical ones. Some taxis are stationcars and can fit quite a lot of luggage...
  5. Yes, it does! You can buy tickets for several people with one app. You need to have mobile data/roaming on to use the app. The app has been relaunched under a new name. Search for "DOT Tickets" on ios appstore or android google play
  6. If you are going directly from the airport, Flixbus has direct busses from both Schönefeld and Tegel, so it could be a very practical solution for you!
  7. DSB will likely run a new direct service between Copenhagen and Hamburg in 2020. So it could be possible to do Kiel-Copenhagen with a single change of trains. Not sure if it will be much faster though. The new timetable will be available in December 2019.
  8. Actually, this is a thing of the past. With the new taxi law, prices have been deregulated so the taxi companies have different rates. There is, however, a maximum rate and the company rates are generally quite close to those. So there is not much of a difference, but there is one!
  9. Marathon May 19th 2019 update Central Copenhagen will host the marathon on may 19th. You can see the route here and traffic info here: https://copenhagenmarathon.dk/en/traffic-information/ You can cross the route on foot/bike (provided you can get past the runners!), so you should be able to move around the city on the day. The marathon means that bus lines in the centre will be diverted/cancelled most of the day. All other forms of public transport (metro, s-train, train, harbour bus) will operate like a normal Sunday Getting to Oceankaj Folke Bernadottesvej will be open in both directions. This means, as far as I can tell, that you can get bus 25 or 27 from Østerport station to Oceankaj. You can take the S-train to Østerport from Copenhagen central or Nørreport station (same single ticket; 24 DKK). I am unsure that bus 25 will continue to Nørreport. I don't think so. Folke Bernadottesvej will also be open for cars, so you can take a taxi there from parts of the centre. In other parts of the centre your taxi may need to take a detour west (via Bispeengbuen) out of the centre. Getting to/from the airport Metro and trains to the airport run as usual. Taxis can exit the city south (via Kalvebod Brygge) or east (via Torvegade), so that shouldn't be a big problem, although trafic may run less smoothly than what it usually does on a Sunday. The runners start at 9.30 AM and the last joggers are expected to finish around 3.45PM. Everything should be back to normal at 4PM. Start and finish line is at Islands Brygge If you check www.journeyplanner.dk a warning triangle probably means that the bus route is diverted/cancelled.
