Here are some suggestions on how to do to get the most out of your stay.

How to get to Stockholm?


By air

Stockholm has four international airports, all with good connections to the city center. The largest, Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is one of the top-ten airports in Europe in terms of on-time performance, while Stockholm-Bromma airport is conveniently close to downtown.

By train

High-speed trains are green travel alternatives for getting to and from Stockholm. The Öresund Bridge connects Sweden to Denmark and the rest of Europe, making the train journey faster. Together with Cityterminalen bus station, Stockholm Centralstation is the busiest railway station in the Nordic countries with over 200,000 visitors every day.

By ferry

Several major ferry lines serve the countries around the Baltic Sea, and Stockholm’s harbors are centrally located. The approach through the beautiful Stockholm archipelago with its 30,000 islands is an experience in itself. The ferry lines arriving and departing from Stockholm are Viking Line, Tallink Silja Line and MOBY SPL (St Peterline).

By car

Stockholm is easy accessible following the E4, E20 and E18 highways. Congestion tax is charged on weekdays between 06:00-18:29 for vehicles driving into and out of Stockholm city centre and on Essingeleden. Each trip in or out from Stockholm’s inner city costs between 15 – 45 SEK, depending on the time of day and season of the year (the maximum amount per day per vehicle is SEK 135). Road toll cameras register all vehicles and an invoice is sent to the vehicle owner at the end of the month.

Transportation in Stockholm

By subway, tram, bus, ferry or commuter train. Stockholm’s local transportation network takes you almost anywhere. You do not need an fysical transportation card to buy single tickets. Instead, you can blip your payment card directly against the ticket reader or buy an app ticket in the SL app and blip the mobile phone. There are also travel cards available for 24 or 72 hours.
