Sunday the 29th of September 2019 in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg

Join us in inaugurating the Cityring M3

We look forward to welcoming all citizens and visitors of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg to their brand-new metro line and we would also like to give thanks for the patience to the many neighbours of the metro construction sites. Therefore, in collaboration with the municipalities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg we invite everyone to join in the celebration of the grand opening of M3 the Cityring with lots of entertainment across Copenhagen and Frederiksberg.

At Rådhuspladsen (City Hall Square) in Copenhagen you can experiencing live music and an opening ceremony from 1 PM to 3 PM and on Solbjerg Plads at Frederiksberg there will be family entertainment from 12.30 PM to 4 PM. You can follow the event on this site or on our Facebook-event (in Danish only).

M3 The Cityring will open for passengers at 3 PM at the metro stations at Rådhuspladsen and Frederiksberg. From 4 PM all stations will be open for passengers and on this special day it will also be free of charge to travel in the metro system. We expect a lot of people on the opening day and therefore we advise you to leave your bike at street level.

 

Big party for the people at City Hall Square in Copenhagen

 

 

The party at City Hall Square starts at 1 PM with a live concert on the big stage. A varied setup of known Danish musicians will be playing.

 

The opening ceremony begins at 2 PM with a special opening show that focusses on how the capital will be changed with the opening of The Cityring’s new 17 metro stations.

Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark Margrethe II will be present at the ceremony.

At 3 PM the announcement of the opening of The Cityring will be made and all customers will then be able to use the whole metro system – both the two current metro lines and the new M3 The Cityring – free of charge all day the 29th of September. In the first couple of hours some waiting time may occur because we expect substantial interest in experiencing the new stations. Metro staff will be ready to handle and help the many customers.

Family friendly music, theatre and magic at Frederiksberg

The Frederiksberg celebration will be a fun and engaging day with entertainment for both neighbours to the construction and all other Frederiksberg citizens. Come and be a part of a mutual celebration of the new metro line and of the different urban spaces that are now handed back to the citizens.
