Arrival Information

There are two airports close to Lund. One is Malmö Airport (Sturup), about 30 km southeast of Lund. The other one is Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup), which is located in Denmark, about 60 km away. Most international visitors arrive at Copenhagen Airport.
  • Copenhagen Airport (International flights). From Copenhagen airport trains leave for Malmö and Lund every twenty minutes, except for in the middle of the night when they only leave once every hour. The trip to Lund takes about 45 minutes. The trains leave from terminal 3, straight ahead from the exit of the baggage reclaim area. If the train ticket is not part of your flight ticket (the normal case, although it could be) you have to buy the ticket in machines at the terminal, just at the entrance to the tracks. The ticket machines accept both cash and credit cards. The price for a train ticket to Lund is around 135 SEK. Please note that return tickets only are valid for 24h. You may have to change trains at Malmö central station. The sequence of stations is normally: Copenhagen Airport Kastrup, Hyllie, Triangeln, Malmö central station, Lund central station.
    Additional information: Trains from CPH airport to Lund depart usually at XX:06, XX:26 and XX:46 (there is only one train per hour at night). You should take the Oresundtåg, not the SJ train. More details: vending machine, initial screen (select buy ticket), destination selection, over the bridge choice, final information, train track.
  • Malmö Airport (Mainly domestic flights). Malmö Airport has frequent connections with Stockholm but only a few regular international flights. There is a bus service from the airport to LTH and to Lund central station, usually in connection with planes from Stockholm. For Taxi service, see below.
Taxis in Sweden. You should be a bit cautious when you take a taxi in Sweden. The taxi market is completely deregulated. The taxis are legally allowed to charge any rate they want, as long as the rate is shown on a small sign in the car window. The result of this is that there are quite a few "independent taxi operators" that try to scam foreigners/tourists. You are advised to only take a taxi that belongs to one of the large and trusted taxi companies. Normally they have their telephone numbers printed in large signs on the side/doors/roof of the cars. Also, in a line of taxi cars, you do not have to take the first car. You can pick anyone you like. At the department we normally use either Taxi Skåne or Taxi Kurir.

Several of the hotels in Lund are also so close to the train station that walking is best. These hotels include Grand Hotel, Hotel Lundia, Concordia, Hotel Oskar, and Hotel Duxiana.
