How to get there?
Though the preferable choice of transportation for the upcoming fairy tale might be a horse carriage, we have a few ideas of transportation that might be just a little faster and more convenient for your journey.
If you would like to fly to Denmark, there are often cheap flights from the big cities around Europe. When travelling with plane, the first destination of your trip would be either Copenhagen, Billund or Aarhus. We recommend Billund or Aarhus.
There are many options for affordable travels through Europe with bus, we recommend travelling with Flixbus. If you fly to Copenhagen Airport, this would be the cheapest transport to the venue as well. Going from Copenhagen you can travel with Flixbus to Grenaa, where the venue is located. This will be the most affordable option for anyone who travels through Copenhagen. We advise you to book the fare travelling from København Hovedbanegård (Copenhagen Central Station) to Grenaa Havn (Grenaa Habour). This stop is only a 15-minute walk to the venue. We recommend that you buy the tickets in good time!
If you are travelling by car insert the venue address onto your GPS or Google Maps. This way you’ll find it easily.
The address for the venue:
Coming by train, you should make Aarhus Hovedbanegård your point of destination. Once you arrive here, it will be possible to catch an EFPSA bus to arrive to the venue in time for the adventure to begin.
The Organising Committee will provide EFPSA buses for the participants. These buses will follow different schedules from Aarhus City Centre, Aarhus Airport, and Billund Airport to the venue on the first day and back from the venue to Aarhus City Centre, Aarhus Airport, and Billund Airport on the last day. You have been asked to fill in information about your arrival and departure; the schedule of the buses will be determined on this information. Please note that this service is paid by the participant themselves. Further information will be provided by e-mail to the participants. The EFPSA buses will be an easy, affordable and convenient solution for all participants.
NB: If you arrive/depart on other days than the official travel days, travels will be at your own responsibility. However, if that is the case we would recommend you to look up your travel options on either google maps or Rejseplanen.

Do you have a few days to spend in Denmark before the Congress? Here are few tips on how to spend the time!
Copenhagen is a beautiful city with a lot of different things to see. And if you are wearing a pair of comfortable shoes everything is in walking distance from the centre! For all you explorers in need of some sightseeing tips, look here:
- Amalienborg Palace is home to the royal family in Denmark. Every day at 12:00 noon you can experience the changing of guards, when the Royal Guard marches from their barracks through the streets of Copenhagen and end up at the palace.
- From the castle you can easily walk to The little Mermaid. This little bronze statue is inspired by the fairytale of Hans Christian Andersen and is a must-see when in Denmark.
Fun fact: her head was cut of and stolen twice!
- Nyhavn was originally a busy commercial port where ship from all over the world would dock. Now it is a gorgeous neighbourhood with a nice and relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to rest your feet and eat an ice cream at the quayside.
Fun fact: H.C. Andersen used to live in this neighbourhood for several years.
- To get a good view of the old part of Copenhagen you should visit The Round Tower - an observatory built in the 17th century by Christian IV. The tower is only 36 meters tall, but if you want to get to the top you will need to walk up the spiral walk. Thus, depending on how close you walk to the outer wall or the core of the building you will walk between 85-268 meters to the rooftop.
- Rosenborg Castle holds the Danish Crown Jewels and the Royal Regalia. Make a visit for the treasuries or to take a walk in the sun through the King’s Garden.
