Time from airport to city centre

We are scheduled to land (with hand luggage only) at Copenhagen airport at 9.40am on a Sunday and plan to travel straight to our hotel in Nyhavn, by metro, to leave our bags before exploring. Do you think we could get to the town hall in time to join one of the 11am walking tours which start from there?

If the plane is on time it should be doable, but quite tight.

Too tight in my opinion. I live in the City centre and it usually takes mé around a 60 - 90 minutes to get home via the Metro from the airport and I know exactly where I'm going.

It will take about 30 minutes from landing to taxi to the gate, disembark, complete immigration and walk through the airport to the metro station.

You then need to buy your tickets, walk to the platform and catch the Metro to KN. Then at the other end, find your hotel. At least another 30 minutes but probably more as you'll need to get your beatings when you exit the Metro.

It is then about a 10-15 minute walk from Nyhavn to Rådhusplasen.

I Think you'd have a better chance of making the Tour if you take the train from the airport to Central Station

and store your bags there, it is then just a few minute walk to Rådhusplasen.

One glimmer of hope I Can offer you - I've flown into CPH three times this month and All of my flights have been early by at least 15 minutes.
