Travel information

How to get there

Stockholm, capital and largest city of Sweden, is located at the junction of Lake Mälar (Mälaren) and Salt Bay (Saltsjön), an arm of the Baltic Sea, opposite the Gulf of Finland. The city is built upon numerous islands as well as the mainland of Uppland and Södermanland.

By air

Stockholm is located 37 km south of the main international airport, Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which has flights from over 181 international destinations, operated by more than 80 international and regional airline companies.

A taxi journey from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to the city centre of Stockholm will take approximately 40 minutes dependent on the time of day. Please note that taxi fares in Stockholm are not regulated, which means that prices can vary significantly between companies. The average cost is around SEK 450-500 Recommended taxi firms are Taxi Stockholm, Taxi 020 and Taxi Kurir. Approved taxis with metered fares always bear yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted.

The Arlanda Express high speed train service takes you from Arlanda Airport to the city centre. The platform is easily accessible underneath the arrival terminals. Departure is every 15 minutes (for most of the day); travel time is around 20 minutes and the ticket cost is 280 SEK for a single trip and 540 SEK for a return journey. The Arlanda Express station is 5 minutes’ walk from the Congress venue.

Public Transportation

Stockholm Public Transport, SL, is responsible for buses, underground trains, commuter trains, trams and certain ferry lines in Greater Stockholm.

The underground is the easiest way to get around town. Tickets can be purchased at SL Centers, underground ticket booths, newsagent kiosks, via SMS or via the SL app. It's not possible to pay cash for tickets on board buses in Stockholm. Failure to show a valid ticket during a control will result in a penalty fee of 1,200 SEK. A single ticket is valid for 75 minutes and costs 43 SEK (30 SEK if you use a prepaid SL Card instead). It's also possible to buy 24 hour, 72 hour and 30-day tickets.

A trip on the number 69 bus or number 7 tram that goes out to Djurgården is a superb way to discover Stockholm. The tram connects you with major attractions like Skansen and the Vasa Museum.

Stockholmers are always heedful of their beautiful surroundings, and this has led to many inner city buses running on eco-friendly fuels such as ethanol. The Stockholm underground is also known as the world’s longest art gallery as so many of its stations are adorned with the works of different artists.
