Access by air

Via Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (CPH)

For most international travellers it is best to go to Copenhagen Kastrup airport (airport code CPH). Many international airlines have cheap direct flights there. Copenhagen Airport has an own railway station. From there you can take direct trains to Höör station. They operate every hour during daytime and the journey takes only 50 minutes.

For schedules of the trains check the excellent web site of the German Railways (in 6 languages) or the Danish State Railways or Swedish State Railways. Please note that you have to buy your ticket in advance. Boarding the train without a valid ticket is regarded as fare-dodging in Denmark (and there are plans to introduce a similar system in Sweden too). There are vending machines and ticket booths at the airport station in Kastrup.

Arriving in Höör take the railway station exit to the left of the train direction (northwestside). Walk in the opposite direction of the train direction along "Bangårdsgatan" for 150 metres. Turn right, keeping a small lake to the left. After 100m fork off right into Åkersbergsgatan. After 150m you will see the venue on the left.

For schedules of the trains check the excellent web site of the German Railways (in 6 languages) or the one of Swedish State Railways. At the latter, you can buy tickets also.
