HOW TO GET TO LUND!
Elite Hotel Ideon is based in the city of Lund, close to Malmö (Sweden’s 3rd largest city) in the south of Sweden. This part of Sweden is very close to Denmark and Germany.
The closest international airport to Lund is Copenhagen Airport in Denmark. The journey time by train from the airport to Lund is about 35 minutes. The journey takes you over the Öresund Bridge connecting Denmark to Sweden and via Malmö central station where you may need to change trains. Train tickets can be purchased from the Skånetrafiken ticket machines in the arrivals hall at Copenhagen Airport, near the escalators going down to the train platform. You can pay using a debit/credit card, and if you buy a ticket all the way to Lund, the ticket will be valid even if you change trains at Malmö central station. You can also use the Danish DSB ticket machines when travelling with Skanetrafiken, or make your purchase at the DSB ticket office; however, a DSB ticket will be slightly more expensive.
The closest local airport to Lund is Malmö Sturup. It has some international flights from destinations within Europe and flights from other Swedish airports including Stockholm. There are bus connections to Sturup airport ('flygbus') or you can get a taxi to Lund.
Lund is located on the main railway line from Malmö to several different destinations such as Berlin, Olso, Stockholm and Gothenburg. Travel time from Stockholm is about 4 hours on the express train 'X2000' or 6-7 hours on 'Intercity' trains. Gothenburg (Göteborg in Swedish) is approximately 250 km north of Lund. There are regular trains between Gothenburg and Lund. The journey time is approximately 3-4 hours. To book tickets or find out more about destinations and travel times please visit SJ and Snälltåget.
