16th Workshop Odense 2020


We bid you a warm welcome in Odense on the picturesque island of Funen! We are looking forward to meeting institutionalist scholars from all over Europe and beyond, colleagues old and new, for two days of lively discussion and exchange.

We look forward to welcoming you to SDU in Odense! Getting here …

By plane 
The best route is to fly to Copenhagen. Copenhagen Airport, the biggest airport in Denmark, is an international airport with many flights arriving from and departing to all regions of the world. For further information about the airport, go to Copenhagen Airport.  

There is also an airport in Billund (to the west of Odense, on Jutland) with less-frequent bus-train connections to Odense. 

Trains to Odense

Trains depart from Copenhagen Airport. Some go directly to Odense some go to Copenhagen Central Station (København H) where it is necessary to change in order to go to Odense. All westbound trains from the airport stop at Copenhagen Central Station (eastbound trains go to Sweden, so check the direction carefully!). Tickets must be bought before boarding the train. Trains that run from Copenhagen Airport to Odense train station run more or less hourly; schedules are available and tickets can be bought at English and German versions are available. There are also ticket offices/vending machines at the airport and at train stations.

Odense has one main train station (“Odense St.” or also called “Odense Banegård Center - OBC”) which has connections to Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Flensburg (Germany).

Local transport in Odense

Buses, lines 41 - 44, run between Odense train station (OBC) and the university (SDU). For Sunday events, exit the bus at the main entrance of the university.  For all other days, exit at the main campus entrance* of the university. If you've taken the train to Odense, you can use your train ticket as bus fare; otherwise it costs 24 DKK.  You can also use an App (“Rejseplanen”) to find routes if needed. Tickets must be purchased in the bus and by cash only. See bus table for additional information (English and German versions are available). 
Taxis cost about 150 DKK (about € 20). Ask the driver to drop you off at the main entrance*. Taxis can be found at the station or booked by phone: +45 66 15 44 15 or
 +45 66 12 27 12. 

*At time of this printing, road construction prevents access to the main campus entrance and buses instead drop passengers near the swimming hall. The bus stop areas and Entrance H are marked on the map (see next page).

Car: Highway E20 connects Europe with Odense.
