TRAVEL

Getting to Lund

Lund is located in the very south of Sweden, not far from the cities Malmö (Sweden’s third largest city) and Copenhagen in Denmark. Copenhagen airport Kastrup is the closets large airport, though Malmö airport Sturup has some international (often low-cost) connections, too, and is worth checking as an alternative.

From Kastrup airport to Lund

The train from Kastrup to Lund leaves directly from the airport building and takes about 40 minutes. The ticket costs 150 SEK (≈15€). We recommend buying it through the app of the local public transport system Skånetrafiken (Google Play and App Store, English interface available). Choose ‘Lund C’ as your final destination (the main railway station in Lund). It is also possible to buy tickets through a ticket machine directly at the airport, but at ca 20% higher price. The trains depart every 20 minutes and we highly recommend to use them.

Getting from Kastrup to Lund by taxi is expensive (150€ and more) and price depends on the time of the day (more expensive at night). Taxi companies often have fixed fares for getting to Lund, but make sure to ask in advance. You can pay for taxi with a credit card.

You may encounter a passport control on the border between Denmark and Sweden.
