Travel and accomodation

Welcome to Stockholm

Stockholm is a city of contrasts. It’s unquestionably alluring, and widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Stockholm is urban yet historic and very close to nature; water is an ever-present feature in this city where green areas, medieval buildings, and skyscrapers meet. Diversity, equality, and innovation are celebrated and embraced here. This is a modern hub for tech, fashion, music, film, design, gaming, and all creative industries. This is a city open to everything and to everyone.

Getting to Stockholm

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. Stockholm Central Station is, combined with the City terminal bus station, the busiest railway station in the Nordic countries with over 200 000 visitors every day. Services include intercity trains, regional trains, local trains, intercity buses and the Arlanda Express. 

For more information about how to book tickets, fairs and timetables please contact your local train operator or travelling agency. 

Several major ferry lines serve the countries around the Baltic Sea, and Stockholm’s harbors are centrally located. Stockholm is also a popular cruise destination and every year around 300 cruise liners from all over the world put in to the city. The approach through the beautiful Stockholm archipelago with its 30,000 islands is an experience in itself.
