How to get to University Hospital of Copenhagen
On weekdays between 06.30 – 15.00 parking options are limited. It is possible to park close to the hospital, but it can be hard to find a spot. Therefore, we strongly recommend using public transportation or taking a taxi. (See the section about public transportation.)
NB! Please note that there is a lot of construction going on in and around the hospital.
Parking at the hospital area is only allowed for patients and employees with a parking permit from Monday to Friday. It is, therefore, necessary to park on the streets next to the hospital.
We recommend Edel Sauntes Allé, Øster Allé, Blegdamsvej and Frederik V’s Vej.
The cost of parking is 15 DKK per hour (approx. 2 USD) – And often the parking around the hospital requires the apps “Easy Park” or “APCOA FLOW”.

We strongly recommend taking public transportation
