Getting to Lund:

The nearest international airport is Copenhagen (CPH), which has good train connections with Lund. There are also some low-budget companies (e.g. Ryanair) flying to Malmö Airport Sturup (MMX), about 30 km East of Lund.

Via Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup): After passing through customs at Copenhagen Airport, proceed 70 m ahead where you can buy a train ticket to Lund, then descend one level to Track 1, where the trains to Malmö and onwards (Lund) depart every 20 min (16, 36 and 56 min past the hour) from early morning till late evening. The journey takes approx 45 min. The fare is approx 120 SEK for a single ticket purchased at the airport, more if bought on the train. For further information about trains in the Copenhagen-Lund area, please refer to Skånetrafiken .

From the train station in Lund it's a 20 min (uphill) walk to the observatory (1,5 km towards north-east). The street address to Lund Observatory is Astronomihuset, Sölvegatan 27. It is located at the crossing of Sölvegatan and Tornavägen (location H6 on the map).

Ibis Hotel is about 2,5 km north-west of the train station (location C5 on the map).

Taxis can be found outside the train station in Lund. Recommended companies are Taxi Kurir (tel: (0)46 700 000) and Taxi Skåne (tel: (0)46 330 330).

Via Malmö Airport (Sturup): Located 25 km south-east of Lund, Sturup is the regional airport for domestic flights (mainly Stockholm). A few companies do operate direct connections to London Stansted and Dublin (by Ryanair), and to Warsaw and Budapest (by Wizzair). Their main advantage is the (usually) very low price.

From Sturup there are direct buses ("Flygbussarna") to Lund (approx 40 min).

Conference Dinner:

A dinner has been arranged for all participants on the evening of the 23 November.

Time: 19:30. Place: restaurant Carlssons Trädgård (near the centre of town, at G8 on the map).
