Travel from airport
Most international travellers will arrive at
Arlanda Airport. From there, travel by train (Arlanda Express) or bus (Flygbussarna) to Stockholm Central
Station. The train is fast but somewhat costly. If you are staying at Elite
Palace you may considering taking the buses because they have a stop very
close to that hotel ("Norra Stationsgatan").
in and around Stockholm with buses, subway ("T-bana"), commuter trains, and the
occasional tramway is easy with a single prepaid travel card. Buy this
in the "SL Center" at the Central Station or in
most newsagent's shops such as "Pressbyrån".
A 7-day ticket would suit most attendants of the conference. Buying
tickets at the subway gates is very expensive and it is not possible at
all on buses.
