Travelling to Copenhagen

International travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic

⚠️ To help ticket holders with the key decisions that come next, we have summarised the key entry requirements when travelling to Copenhagen for UEFA EURO 2020. These are constantly evolving and changing and are based on the latest information received by UEFA from the local authorities. UEFA cannot guarantee that it will be accurate or reflect the latest position, although we will do our best to keep this up to date. It is your responsibility to check the government websites to verify the latest position and requirements before your date of travel.

International travel to Denmark is currently restricted. Depending on your country of origin, you may not be allowed to enter the country at all.

Entry requirements for Denmark

Entry requirements depend on whether your country or region of origin is listed in the green, yellow, orange, or red category by the Danish government.

Fans travelling to Copenhagen from Croatia

Since 26 June, Croatia has been listed as a greencountry which means you can enter Denmark. However, as Croatia is not listed as a Schengen country, you need to get a COVID-19 test within the first 24 hours upon your arrival. Remember you still need to adhere to the stadium entry requirements, which include a COVID-19 rapid test, or certificate of vaccination or proof of previous infection.

Fans travelling to Copenhagen from Spain

Since 26 June, Spain has been listed as a yellow country. Some regions of Spain are considered green regions. If you’re departing from a yellow part of Spain, you need to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival in Denmark. No specific COVID-19 related travel restrictions are in place for the green regions. However, you still need to adhere to the stadium entry requirements, which include a COVID-19 rapid test, or certificate of vaccination or proof of previous infection.

Check the requirements for your country of origin

🟢 Green category

If your country or region of origin is listed in the green category, you can travel to Denmark without any COVID-19 related restrictions. However, you still need to adhere to the stadium entry requirements, which include a COVID-19 rapid test, or certificate of vaccination or proof of previous infection.

🟡 Yellow category (rules for EU and Schengen countries)

💉 If you are fully vaccinated, you can enter Denmark 14 days after your last dose. Any COVID-19 vaccine recognised by the EU is accepted.

Has it been between 14 days and eight months since your COVID-19 infection? With a printed version of your positive test result (needs to be from a PCR test) in hand, you can enter Denmark.

If you can’t provide one of the above, you’ll need to present a negative PCR test result no more than 48 hours old when entering Denmark. You must get a negative test before travelling to Denmark and you will be tested once again upon arrival. The arrival test will be an antigen test and if this is negative as well, you can enter Denmark.

🟠 Orange category (rules for EU and Schengen countries)

💉 If you are fully vaccinated, you can enter Denmark 14 days after your last dose. Any COVID-19 vaccine recognised by the EU is accepted.

Has it been between 14 days and eight months since your COVID-19 infection? With the printed version of your positive test result (needs to be a from a PCR test) in hand, you can enter Denmark.

If you can’t provide one of the above, you’ll be required to self-isolate after entering Denmark. This means you will need to show a negative PCR result before travelling to Denmark, take another COVID-19 test upon arrival and immediately start your self-isolation period. Travellers can quarantine in a hotel room or similar accommodation, but always at their own cost.

The isolation period is ten days. It can be shortened by taking a COVID-19 PCR test on day 4. When you receive your negative test result you can end your isolation. This means if you’re a ticket holder for a EURO 2020 match at Parken Stadium and you travel to Denmark from an orange category country, you must arrive in Denmark a minimum of five days before your match.

🔴 Red category

If your country is in the red category, you cannot enter Denmark as a spectator for EURO 2020. Football matches are not included in the list of reasons for essential visits.

Getting there

✈️ By plane

Copenhagen Airport is probably the most easily accessed airport in Europe, with excellent road, rail and sea connections and a direct train to Østerport and Nordhavn Stations, which are right by the stadium.

🚆 By train


Travelling by train in Denmark works like a charm – the infrastructure is top class and trains are fast, convenient and reliable. Most international trains run into København H Central Station. Please note that due to the current travel restrictions, connections from neighbouring countries may be suspended.

🚗 By car


If you plan to travel to Copenhagen by car, please, note that Parken Stadium will not provide parking for private vehicles during the event. Instead, plan to park your car close to the most convenient city transport hub and use public transport to get to the stadium.

Let me give you a top tip:

If you are a disabled passenger, please inform your airline or travel agent and let them know about the kind of assistance you need. You can do this either when booking your flight or closer to your travels, but make sure it's at least 48 hours before you start your journey.

🚆 By public transport

Copenhagen's airport is well connected, particularly when it comes to trains. You can catch a direct train to the city centre or Østerport Station which only takes about 15 minutes. A single ticket is DKK 36 (approximately €4.80). Another option is the metro; line M2 connects Copenhagen airport directly to the city centre. Both services take about 13 minutes and run from terminal 3.

🚖 By taxi

Travelling to the city centre from the airport by taxi will only take you around 20 minutes depending on traffic in Copenhagen. Taxi ranks can be found outside of the terminals. The trip to the city centre will set you back around DKK 250–300 (€33–40). Don't forget to bring you face mask, because you'll need to wear one when travelling by taxi in Denmark.

🚍 By public transport

Public transport in Copenhagen consists of metro, bus (including waterbuses) and rail networks. For all modes of public transport, tickets must be bought before boarding and can be purchased at ticket machines, which accept cash and cards, or kiosks within the transport hubs. Tickets bought for one mode of transport are valid for the others including the harbour bus, so if you're planning a journey that involves multiple modes of transport, there's no need to buy more than one ticket.

Be sure to check the safe travel guidelines available on the official transport operator website.

Let me give you a top tip:

All metro stations in Copenhagen are equipped with elevators or lifts. Most buses and trains are equipped to cater to accessible needs, although if you’re planning on travelling by train contact the DSB Handicap service for more information.

🚴 By Bicycle

Copenhagen is best experienced from the seat of a bicycle. Copenhageners bike to work, to school, to the shops and to the football stadium. It is a way of life, and if you want to experience Copenhagen the local way, you can easily rent a bike.

Ranked as the world’s best bicycle city, it’s easy to rent a bike. The bike lanes can be busy though, so it’s worth checking these guidelines before you hop on.

🚗 By car

If possible, avoid driving in the city. There will be road closures around UEFA Festival sites, the stadium and major attractions. Parking spaces in the centre are scarce and can be expensive, and there won’t be any parking available at the stadium.

🚖 By taxi

Taxis in Copenhagen can be flagged down, while alternatively there are taxi ranks across the city.
