1Theo,you are very lucky,Danish passport holders can enter Turkey for 90 days visa free :)
If you arrive between 06.00 and midnight you can use the metro and tram to reach the city.
From outside the airport buy a token for 3TL for the metro.This will take you as far as Zeytinburnu where you buy another 3TL token and board the tram to Sultanahmet,Sirkeci,Eminönü or Karaköy depending where you plan to stay.
There are routes plans above the doors of metro and tram plus there are clear voice anmnouncements as each stop approaches so you will know when to get off.
