Airports

The best way of getting to Stockholm is by air as the city has an international airport and two secondary airports.

Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is around 25 miles north of the city and is the international airport in Stockholm. Bromma Airport is 5 miles from the city and operates mainly domestic flights. Skvasta Airport offers national and international routes and is 62 miles from Stockholm.

To travel from the airport to the city centre there is a regular bus service called Flybussarna which connects the two destinations in only 5 to 10 minutes. There is also a special train service called Arlanda Express which makes the connection.

Ferry is another practical method of travelling between Stockholm and its neighbouring countries. Ships and ferries carrying cars and passengers berth in the port which is near the city centre.

Alternatively, Swebus and Eurolines are the two main bus companies which operate from Stockholm and connect it with other cities and countries.

Public Transport

It is easy to get to the centre of Stockholm by foot. However, the best option is public transport which is renowned as being very punctual and efficient.

The metro in Stockholm consists of three lines, the red, green and blue lines. Altogether they make up around 68 miles of track. The metro symbol is a blue T.

The city also has various bus lines. Buses routes 47 and 69 are the most popular because they stop in the city centre and offer a number of tourist destinations.

It is not advisable to travel within the city centre because the streets and motorways in Stockholm are very busy. Bicycle is one of the most popular means of transport in Sweden and there are many cycle lanes in the country which makes it a very accessible way of travelling.

Or why not take a cruise along one of the rivers or canals in Stockholm and discover the city in a way that you will never forget.
