Coming to Lund

The easiest way to reach Lund from abroad is via the airport Kastrup in Copenhagen, Denmark.

From Copenhagen (Kastrup) and Malmö (Sturup) airports (map).

Copenhagen airport (Kastrup) to Lund: Regular trains connect Kastrup across the Öresund bridge with Malmö. The trip takes about 20 minutes and costs 80 SEK. Tickets can be purchased for the complete trip to Lund. Not all trains continue from Malmö to Lund. In case your train does not continue, change trains at Malmö station and take a local train (Pågatåg) to Lund central station, or take a taxi from Malmö to Lund (costs about 200 SEK). If you have not purchased a ticket for the whole way, do not forget to buy your ticket at the machine in Malmö (34 SEK to Lund). Otherwise, you will be charged an extra fee onboard.

It is also possible to take a taxi from Kastrup directly to Lund. The price should be about 800-1000 SEK, do not forget to ask the driver for the price in advance.

Malmö (Sturup) airport to Lund: Airport busses (Flygbussarna) depart to Lund about every other hour. The ticket is 90 SEK and the trip takes about 40 min. The busses stop in central Lund, the train station, and the hospital, which is within walking distance of the ASOS 9 conference site. There are also taxis available and credit cards are usually accepted. Do not forget to ask the driver for the price in advance. For further information on the airport busses check this web site.

Remember to acquire any necessary visas for entry to Sweden.

Local transportation

The local transportation, as well as the connection to Copenhagen and Kastrup, are handled by 'Skånetrafiken'. Here you can see the scheduling of busses and train, and get information on how to pay for the journeys.

Currency

The accepted currency in Sweden is the Swedish Krona (SEK). It may be possible to pay with Euro at some places but generally only SEK is accepted. Common credit cards (VISA, Euro/Mastercard, Amex ...) are accepted in virtually all places including bank machines, making it possible to withdraw cash at any time.

Excursions on your own

We will prepare and collect a number of suggestions for trips and one-day excursions using public transportation, to reach nearby cities, museums and historical places.
