Getting There in StockholmEdit This
You will arrive at Central Station. All branches of the Tunnelbana, Stockholms underground system, meet at T-Centralen, the station directly below Central Station. Cityterminalen, nearby, handles all the bus services, both domestic and international, including the airport bus.
The ferry terminals you will find in the northeast and southeast (Katarinavägen) of the inner city. Viking Line ferries arrive at Tegelvikshammen in Södermalm, a thirty minutes walk from the centre. It is connected by bus to Slussen and then by Tunnelbana to T-Centralen. Birka Cruises services dock in Södermalm, too, just up the quayside at Stadsgården. The Silja Terminal is in the northeastern reaches of the city, a short walk from Gärdet or Ropsten, from where you can take the Tunnelbana.
You can't say you've really seen Sweden if you didn't experience a fabulous cruise on the legendary Göta Canal. This enormous waterway expands for miles and miles and goes across one major lake and at least ten smaller lakes. Steam ships defeat this 'Blue Ribbon of Sweden' in order to give the visitors a good view of the surroundings, comprised of meadows, old villages, castles and convents. It's a charming way to get from Stockholm to Goteberg (and the other way around of course).
Arlanda airport is 45 km north of Stockholm. Buses run every 15 min to Cityterminalen (journey time 40 min). There is also a direct rail link between Stockholm and Arlanda. It connects the airport with Central Station in just 20 minutes. Taxis take you down down for a fixed rate. The bus is the cheapest way to go down to the central station.
Bromma airport is closer to the city centre. This is a smaller airport and the facilities are not as abundant as at Arlanda. The airport buses also run from this airport to the central station.
Skavsta airport is situated approx 100 km south of Stockholm at the city of Nyköping. The airport buses will take you you the central station in 1 hour 20 minutes.
