Getting from the Copenhagen airport to Odense: At the airport, follow the signs for the trains (at some point you will pass a ticket office where you can buy a ticket for Odense in case you have not bought one online in advance). Then take the first train in the direction of Copenhagen (a little bit of care is needed at this point, since if you take the train in the wrong direction, the next stop is in Sweden, which is a bit of a detour and not covered by your ticket to Odense). Some of the trains continue to Odense after stopping at Copenhagen central, and others do not. So, if necessary simply get off the train at Copenhagen central and take the first train bound for Jutland (the part of Denmark connected to Germany). Their end stations vary a bit, so it might be a good idea to ask at the central station which train to take, but they all stop in Odense so you cannot take a wrong train, as long as it is Jutland-bound. If you happen to take a train in the morning it might be a good idea to reserve a seat when you buy the ticket, as they tend to fill up. And of course you have to get off the train once you reach Odense (there is only one station, so you cannot go wrong there).

Getting from the Odense train station to Campus: Find the tram stop in front of the station and take the first tram bound for Hjalleste St. Get off at the stop called Odense Campus , and you will find yourself by the main entrance of the university. The mathematics department is in the opposite end of the campus so you will need to walk a bit.

Finding the department: Locate the main entrance on this map map (it's to the left) to figure out how to find your way to the department. Basically you will have to walk all the way down the long main corridor called Gydehutten until you reach a perpendicular corridor on your left called Knoldene and at the end of that, the department (acronym: IMADA) is placed on the first floor. My office is located down by our local library, roughly where the big red arrow on the map is pointing.

In case you get lost: Give me a call on my cell phone (0045-21816859), and in case I don't pick up, try calling our department secretary (0045-65502387).

Travel planning: When using public transportation within Denmark, the website 'rejseplanen' is quite handy, and the language can be set to either English or German if your Danish skills are not up to snuff.
