Arlanda Airport is the only international airport in Stockholm. It is the largest airport in Sweden and the third-largest in the Nordic countries. In 2016, it served nearly 25 million passengers.
The Arlanda Express runs non-stop between the airport and Stockholm Central Station, a 20-minute trip. There are two stations in the airport, Arlanda South (terminals 2, 3, and 4) and Arlanda North (terminal 5). Trains depart every 15 minutes and cost roughly $33 US.
There are also buses that service the airport, including Flygbussarna Airport Coaches, which travels to Stockholm City Terminal every 10 minutes most of the day. An adult one-way ticket costs about $12 US.
Getting Around Stockholm
See a city guide here.
Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL), Stockholm's public transit system, consists of a metro, buses, and several ferries.
The SL Access card allows unlimited rides throughout the city and to and from the airport, as well as ferry rides to Djurgården. Cards can be purchased at SL centers, at the central station, or at Sky City at the airport. Cards may be loaded for various durations.
Three main north–south metro (tunnelbana, or T-bana) lines (red, blue, and green) serve the region around Stockholm and travel through the central station. Metro stations are closed 1–5:30 am Sunday–Thursday. Most stations are decorated with sculptures, paintings, and other art.
Buses are a great way to get around the city perimeter and into the suburbs. Night buses are available when the metro is closed.
Other Modes of Transportation
- The Djurgårdslinjen from Norrmalmstorg to Djurgården stops at many famous attractions, including the Vasa Museum, Skansen, and Gröna Lund.
- Take advantage of the fact that Stockholm is built on 14 islands and travel by boat!
- A taxi from the airport to the headquarters hotel takes approximately 32 minutes and costs around $75 US during the day; expect higher rates 7–9 am and 3 pm–12 am. Fares are unregulated.
- Uber is available but is generally more expensive than public transportation.
- City Bikes has a bike rental system April to October, with 90+ stations around the city. A 3-day card is about $20 US.
