Stockholm is a little more than a two-hour flight away from major European cities like London, Paris and Frankfurt. With flight connections from all over Europe, visitors will have an easy time of reaching the Capital of Sweden.

From Arlanda Airport

Arlanda Airport is a key hub for flights to major destinations in Europe. It is situated 40km north of the city centre. To get from Arlanda to Stockholm City there are three main alternatives: Arlanda Express (fast train), Arlanda Airport Buses and taxi. More information can be found at

Arlanda Express, departing every 15 minutes for most of the day, takes you from Arlanda Airport to the Central Railway Station. Travel time: 20 minutes.

Arlanda Airport Buses, departing every 10-15 minutes between Arlanda Airport and the City Terminal (located next to the Central Railway Station). Travel time: 35-40 minutes.

From Bromma Airport

Bromma airport is the “local airport” in Stockholm and is located northwest of town, not very far from KTH. Therefore, the preferred way of transportation is with taxi, but more information about different alternatives can be found at

Information about local transportation (buses and underground/metro “tunnelbana”)

Stockholm has a fast and reliable public transport service (SL), so we warmly suggest you to make use of it during your stay in Stockholm. The venue KTH Royal Institute of Technology is located at the underground station Tekniska högskolan.  All underground stations are marked with a white circular sign with a “T” (Tunnelbana is Swedish for Underground or Metro).

You can purchase travel cards that allow you to freely explore the whole city with bus, underground/metro and some ferries (find more detailed info here). The travel pass can be purchased at any SL-center at any of the major stations (Arlanda Airport, Central Railway Station, Tekniska högskolan, Östermalmstorg and many more), check on the SL website to find the more convenient for you, as well as in convenience stores such as Pressbyrån inside the train stations (always check for the SL logo!).


There are many Taxi companies to choose from in Stockholm. Approved taxis with metered fares always have yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted.

Taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden; they may vary greatly. It is the customer’s responsibility to check prices beforehand. Check the price on the yellow-and-white label, which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle. The highest unit price of most taxis is typically between SEK 300–400. The price on the yellow label is based on a 10 km 15-minute journey.

The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish krona. For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, the major taxi companies have fixed prices of approximately SEK 500. Always ask the driver beforehand. In addition to the major taxi companies, there are several independent firms; caution is advised. You can easily get hold of a taxi by calling a taxi company, hailing one in the street or by taking one from a rank, e.g. at NK on Hamngatan or the Central Railway Station.
