Travel to Stockholm
The main airports in Stockholm are Arlanda Airport (served by most international flights) and Bromma Airport (mostly domestic flights and some intra-Scandinavian ones).
From Arlanda, the express train takes about 20 minutes and costs about SEK 300. The airport bus takes 45-60 minutes and costs SEK 140. A regular taxi will set you back about SEK 600, and takes 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. Make sure you get a fixed price.
Skavsta is about two hours by airport bus (SEK 240) from the city. This airport serves only a few low-cost airlines.
Long distance trains arrive at Stockholm Central Station, which is about a 30-minute walk from the venue, or a few stops on the red line on the subway.
Stockholm is very walkable, accessible and safe. As long as you stay “within the moat” (i.e. central Stockholm), most places are within 30-40 minutes’ walking distance.
Public transport in Stockholm is plentiful, clean and accessible. The closest subway station to the venue is Stadion.
All public transport in Stockholm is operated by SL. A single ticket covers the subway, commuter trains, buses, and even some commuter boats. You can buy day-passes or individual tickets, or you can just use your credit card directly on the green card readers at the turnstiles. Single-fare tickets are SEK 38, and are valid for multiple entries on the whole network up to 75 minutes.
Trips to and from Arlanda airport with public transport carry a surcharge.
Credit cards are universally accepted in all shops, restaurants and attractions, including vending machines and public transport, even for tiny purchases.
Many places no longer accept cash at all. Your best bet is to go cash-free.
