The venue is super close to Copenhagen Airport! You can walk there in only 20 minutes if you really want to - or you can get public transportation that takes you right there!

By bus - Take either 5C or 2A to the busstop "Skottegårdsskolen" which is very close to the venue.
By metro - Get off at Kastrup Station where it will be a 800 m walk to the venue. (You can also get on the bus from here if you really dislike walking)
By train - Get off at the airport and either walk the 1.4 km or change to the metro.
By car - enter "Saltværksvej 63, 2770 Kastrup" into your GPS. From Saltværksvej you should turn onto Nordmarksvej, there will be an asphalt playground area where cars may be parked.


Med offentlig tranport: Det er muligt at komme rigtig tæt på venue med bus ved enten at tage 5C eller 2A til stoppestedet "Skottegårdsskolen".
Det er også muligt at tage metroen til Kastrup St. som er ca. 800 m væk derfra.
Hvis man kommer med tog bør man stå af ved lufthavnen og enten gå de 1,4 km derfra eller skifte til metroen.

Med bil: Plot adressen "Saltværksvej 63, 2770 Kastrup" ind i din GPS. Fra Sltværksvej skal du så dreje ned af Nordmarksvej, hvor du kan køre ind af lågen og parkere i skolegården.

There are four supermarkets, a bakery, a pizza/burger place, and an asian resturant all within 500 m of the venue.


Der er fire supermarkeder, et bageri, et pizza/burger sted og en asiatisk resturent inde for 500 m derfra.

Sleeping at the venue is possible on both Friday and Saturday nights and will be free for competitors and guests. There will be a form send out on email about sleeping around two weeks before the competition.
If you will be sleeping at the venue you will need to provide your own sleeping bag and mat etc.
SHOWER UPDATE: It will be possible to shower in a short window saturday and sunday morning since we managed to get two of the gym halls at the venue for a limited time.

Since it is close to the airport, there is also a lot of different hotels to choose from in the area - the closet one to the venue being Quality Airport Hotel Dan


Det vil være muligt at sove ved konkurrencen både fredag og lørdag nat. Dette er vil være gratis for deltagere og gæster. Der vil blive sendt et spørgeskema ud ca. 2 uger før konkurrencen omkring det.
Hvis du skal sove ved konkurrencen, skal du selv medbringe ting, du kommer til at have brug for som liggeunderlag, sovepose og pude.
BAD OPDATERING: Det vil være muligt at gå i bad i et kort tidsrum lørdag- og søndag morgen, da vi har formået at få to gymnastiksale ved venuen i begrænset tid.

Siden det er så tæt på lufthavnen, er der også mange forskellige hoteller at vælge imellem i nærheden. Den, der er tættest på, er Quality Airport Hotel Dan

In order to register successfully please follow the steps of "Registration requirements" under the "General Info" tab.
Once you have registered and paid using Stripe through the WCA website your registration should be confirmed within 48 hours.
If there are issues with your registration not fulfilling the requirements one of the organisers will contact you to help complete your registration.

Each guest will have to pay 15kr. at the check-in desk. We only accept danish kroner in exact cash or mobile pay.


For at registrere dig skal du følge trinnene for "Registration requirements" under fanen "General Info".
Når du har registreret dig og betalt på Stripe gennem WCA hjemmesiden, burde din registrering blive accepteret inde for 48 timer.
Hvis der er et problem med din registrering, så vil en af organisørene kontakte dig, for at sørge for, at din registrering går igennem.

Hver gæst skal betale 15 kr. ved tjek ind når de kommer. Vi tager kun imod danske kroner kontant i lige penge eller mobile pay.

Alle deltagere skal have læst WCA regelsættet.
Vi vil lave en hurtig gennemgang inden den første disciplin, hvor at vi vil forklare hvordan det foregår når man deltager. Der vil blive givet en demonstration af nogle af vores mest erfarne deltagere. Der vil stå i skemaet hvornår den vil finde sted.

Du skal være tilmeldt konkurrencen online for at kunne deltage! Du kan tilmelde dig her. Din tilmelding er fuldført, når du ser dit navn blandt de andre deltagere (her).

Nye deltagere skal medbringe noget legitimation, for at bekræfte deres identitet til konkurrencen. Et pas vil være et godt exempel, siden der står fødselsdato og hvilket land du repræsenterer.

Det er forventet at du hjælper til under konkurrencen. For hver disciplin du deltager i, så skal du også hjælpe med at dømme i den disciplin, for en anden gruppe. Hvis du ser en tom dommerplads, så vær sød og døm!

Hver gang der er en disciplin med bind for øjnene, så skal der være helt stille i rummet! Det kræver meget koncentration, så vær sød at være stille.

Ingen billeder med blitz er tilladt i hele lokalet! Normale billeder uden blitz er tilladt.

Du må gerne optage dine officielle forsøg, så længe at du ikke kan se kameraets skærm, eller at den er slukket.

Alt publikum skal forholde sig mindst 1,5 meter væk fra alle deltager borde.

Når en runde er i gang, skal alle deltagere i den igangværende gruppe vente i venteområdet, indtil de bliver kaldt op til at løse.

Du må ikke tale om blandingerne før runden er overstået! Ellers kan du blive diskvalificeret.

Du behøver kun at være til stede under de discipliner du deltager i! Vi foreslår at du er der en halv til en hel time, før din første disciplin, da skemaet måske kan ændre sig. Så hvis du kun kan være der en af dagene, så er det fint, så kan du bare kun deltage i de discipliner der er på givne dag. Du må meget gerne skrive hvilken dag du vil være til stede, i noten, når du tilmelder dig konkurrencen.

Du vil modtage en email et dage før konkurrencen. I den vil der stå hvilke mulige ændringer der kan være sket. Den vil også være fuldt ud opdateret, med alt andet information du muligvis vil have brug for.


All competitors must have read the WCA Regulations.
We will have a quick run down before the first event, and explain how to compete and judge. There will be a demonstration by some of our most experienced cubers. You can find out when this will happen in the schedule tab.

You must be registered for this competition online in order to compete! You can register here. Your registration is complete, when you see your name among the other competitors (here).

New competitors must bring a valid identification card, to confirm their identity at the competition. A passport is good example since it shows your date of birth, and country of representation.

You are expected to help during the competition. For each event you participate in, you will then need to judge at least one other group in the same event. If you see an empty an empty spot for a judge at a solving station, please take it! This helps the competition run a lot smoother!

Every time there is blindfolded event, there has to be complete silence! It requires a lot of concentration, so please be silent. If you need to talk or make noise, please leave the venue room where people are solving to do so.

No flash photography in the entire venue! Flash is distracting to the competitors. However pictures without the use of flash are allowed.

You are allowed to film your official attempt, as long as the camera's screen is either off or is out of sight.

All spectators must remain at least 1,5 meters away from every solving station.

When a round is in progress, then all competitors in the current group must wait in the competitor waiting area, until they get called up to solve.

You are not allowed to talk about the scrambles until the round is done! Otherwise, you might get disqualified.

You only need to be present, when you have to compete, in the events you are registered for! We recommend that you are present half an hour to an hour before your first event, since the schedule might change. If you can only be present one of the days, then you can only compete in the events on the given date. If you would like, you can write which day(s) you are coming, in the note, when you sign up for the competition.

When we approach the competition date, you will receive an email. It will contain some changes that might have happened. It will also contain more ‘up to date’ information, which you might need.

6x6x6 and 7x7x7 cube events will be held with a cumulative time limit of 35 minutes. This means that you will have 35 minutes to complete up to 6 solves (3 of each event). If you are competing in both events you will be able to choose which event you start with.

We will include this option in an email which will be send shortly before the competition, so please be sure to fill out that form!


6x6x6 og 7x7x7 vil blive afholdt med en samlet tidsfrist på 35 minutter. Det betyder, at du vil have 35 minutter at færdiggøre op til 6 løsninger (3 af hver terning). Hvis du konkurrerer i begge decipliner, kan du vælge hvilken deciplin du starter med.

Vi vil inkludere dette valg i en mail, som sendes ud kort før konkurrencen, så vær sikker på at udfylde spørgeskemaet!
