The venue is located at Hotel Scandic Copenhagen in the very center of the beautiful visitor-friendly Copenhagen, with everything reachable by walking or short public transportation. 

Copenhagen is an old maritime city with the oldest monarchy in the world. There are plenty of tourist attractions as museums, architectures, parks, and royal buildings. ISS in 2016 takes place in June and summer is the perfect time of year to visit Copenhagen. It never really goes dark and dusk does not set in until late evening.
