Important regarding transport to Sandbjerg Estate from Copenhagen (CPH)

Plane: the flight company “Alsie Express” is flying directly to Sønderborg from Copenhagen (CPH): http://alsieexpress.dk/en/ (45 min). This is the easiest way to get to Sønderborg (12 km from Sandbjerg Estate). The Alsie express is only flying once pr. day during the weekends (6 Aug at 7:30pm). We believe that you should book this flight as soon as possible as it is a domestic flight route with very few seats. The alternative Airports (Billund (BLL) and Aarhus (AAR)) both have a transportation time to Sandbjerg of approx. 3 hours. 

Train: connection every second hour, travel time is 4 hours (one change in Copenhagen central station). Available up to 19:24 starting to Sonderborg and 7:36 up to 19:36 starting in Sonderborg)
