Travel

Getting to, and around in, Stockholm couldn’t be easier: there are numerous options for traveling to the city.

Getting to Stockholm

By air: The Greater Stockholm area has four international airports, all with good transit connections to downtown Stockholm.  All of the region's important cities are within comfortable reach, and all of northern Europe's major cities are less than two hours away.
By train: Getting to Sweden by train from Europe is quick and easy, especially since the Öresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden opened. The state-owned rail company SJ runs most long-distance routes to Oslo, Copenhagen, Berlin and domestic routes in Sweden. The X 2000 express from Malmö in southern Sweden takes around 4.5 hours to Stockholm, and around three hours from Gothenburg in the west of Sweden.

Getting around in Stockholm

By public transit: Stockholm is often praised for its comfortable, efficient and safe transportation. The system is unified, with Stockholm Public Transport being 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. The city is divided into three zones, and zone tickets are good for several trips within the hour. Tickets can be purchased at SL Centers, underground platform barriers, newsagent kiosks or via SMS. Most bus stops have ticket machines that take both coins and cards.
Prepaid cards are the best alternative for those making few trips. It's also possible to buy 1, 3, or 7-day cards, which allow free travel in all zones during the validity period. Another alternative is the Stockholm Card, which allows free travel and free entry to 80 museums and attractions in the city. Stockholm Cards are valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours.
