COPENHAGEN - DENMARK

 Travel to Copenhagen

How to get from airport to the hotel?

The city of Copenhagen has 2 (two) airports. The main airport is Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (code CPH). It's the largest and the main International airport serving Copenhagen, Denmark, the rest of Zealand, the Oresund Region, and a large part of Southern Sweden including Scania. The other airport is the Roskilde Airport.

The Kastrup airport is close to Copenhagen, about 8 km from the city center.  From here you can take the metro or taxi. The metro station is located right next to the arrival hall at the airport (1st floor of Terminal 3). The Metro runs every 4–6 minute during the day and evening hours, and at a 15–20 minute intervals at night.

A one-way ticket from airport to Christianshavn metro station costs €2-3. You may purchase tickets from the DSB ticket counter or from the automatic machines in the metro station. Please note that the ticket machines accept only coins and credit cards. You should also know that the Christianshavn metro station is located at about 250 from the hotel.

Copenhagen is also served by urban trains that run from the airport to Copenhagen Central Station every 10-20 minutes during the day, offering a journey time around 13 minutes, but the train station is to far away from the hotel.

After a flight, you’re often tired and anxious to get to your destination as quickly and smoothly as possible, so you will probably prefer to take a taxi. You can find a taxi outside of terminals 1 and 3, or, if you prefer to book it in advance, you can download an application such as DANTAXI, TAXA4x35, or TAXI4x27. It will take around 20 min to get to the city center and will cost you around € 35-50.

How to get from the hotel to the city center?

* The Am Friedrichshain tram station is about 50 meters from the hotel. If you take the M4 tram, you will reach Alexanderplatz in 5 minutes (3 stops)

* Bus line 200

* If you prefer walking, you will need about 15 minutes to reach Alexanderplaz

Below you will find some maps that can help you.

BERLIN CATHEDRAL - A church was first built on this site in the fifteenth century. This was the court church to the Hohenzollern dynasty, the Prussian rulers, and then the German Emperors. Due to fires and restorations that destroyed earlier churches, the baroque-style Berlin Cathedral dates from 1905. Kaiser Wilhelm II decided to build a cathedral to rival St..Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London. And he did. We can find here the Baptismal and Wedding Church, the Imperial Staircase, the Hohenzollern Crypt, the Cathedral Museum and the impressive Dome.

CLASSES & PROJECTS

 Betty Stephan

ISABELLA BRACELET - This stunning cuff has a raised center component, giving it a lot of blingy dimension! The center flower is formed with crystal drops and backlit Baroque cabs surround it – giving this cuff a lot of sparkle! The strap of the cuff is a ribbon that has a vine and leaves woven in. This will be the basis for the embellishments you will add. Although the cuff looks quite complicated, it's not hard at all- it's a fun, enjoyable project. Betty will even show you how you can turn this into a pendant- if cuffs aren’t “your thing”.

LA CHAÎNE D'ANCRE - or “ANCHOR CHAIN” refers to the component that attaches the anchor to the boat. Anchor chains are one of the most crucial components of boats. They play a very important role in keeping the vessel in position, especially in choppy waters. The chain acts as a robust link between the anchor and the vessel, ensuring the stability and safety of the boat.

It's in line with this that anchor jewelry often stand for hope, steadfastness, salvation, stability, tranquility, security and good luck.

Inspired by the components of the anchor chain, La Chaîne d'Ancre epitomizes its value. It's big and bold, just like the anchor chain. It's made from flexible links of cubic right angle weave. Suspended from the “anchor chain” is not an anchor, but a large and equally bold rhinestone which swings freely from a “shackle”. The toggle clasp is formed with a chain link with a double closure perfectly centering the clasp at the back of the neck. It's a very comfortable necklace.
