Practical information


The EMBRACE workshop on June 2-4 will take place at the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in building 208. DTU is located in Lyngby, 10 km north of Copenhagen. You can get to DTU in Lyngby by car or by public transportation. Several busses stop almost at the door and Lyngby Station is just 3 km away with even more bus connections.


Copenhagen Metro travels from the airport to Nørreport Station in the centre of Copenhagen. There is a service every 4 minutes. In addition, there is a train service every 20 minutes from the Copenhagen Airport train station to Nørreport. At Nørreport Station, bus no. 150 S leaves approximately every ten minutes and stops at DTU. The price of a ticket for this journey is around DKK 70. Alternatively, you can take the s-train (S-tog) from Copenhagen Central Station in the direction of Hillerød and Holte (line B or E). Both those trains will stop at Lyngby station from where you can get the bus 300 S in the direction of Nærum/Kokkedal and get off at DTU.

A taxi ride from Copenhagen Airport to DTU costs around DKK 400 and takes from 30 minutes. From the centre of Copenhagen to DTU, a taxi ride also takes about 30 minutes and costs approximately DKK 200.


For participants accomodation will not be pre-booked; thus, the participants must ensure that they make these bookings themselves in good time.

In Lyngby, Hotel Scandic Eremitage is the closest situated hotel to DTU. If you prefer staying in central Copenhagen it is worthwhile to check out the following website where cheaper accommodation can be found Hotels in Copenhagen. If you book accommodation in Copenhagen, we recommend that you find a hotel close to Copenhagen central station or Nørreport station, from where transport to Lyngby is easy.


CBS will organise and pay for lunch for all participants throughout the workshop and also cater for drinks and coffee breaks. A workshop dinner will be arranged on Thursday evening, where costs are covered by the EMBRACE funding. However, participants will have to cater for the Wednesday dinner themselves.

All travel, transport and accommodation costs will not be reimbursed by the organisers, but should be covered by participants' own budget.
