If you have your accommodation in Stockholm arranged by Nordita, you can also check the following directions between the airports, the hotels and Nordita:
Nordita is in the campus of AlbaNova University Center, within walking distance from the main campus areas of the three universities in northern Stockholm: Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Karolinska Institutet.
Going by bus to Stockholm takes about one hour. Tickets for the Airport bus (the company is called Flygbussarna, see www.flygbussarna.se/?lang=EN) can be bought on the bus with any major credit card. Note that cash is not accepted!
Take the Airport Bus from Arlanda to the end destination Stockholm City or Cityterminalen, which is just next to the Central Station. Take right when you enter the terminal hall from the bus stop, then take the stairs just to the left of the exit and follow signs "Tunnelbana Metro" and the blue "T" logo. You should take another staircase down to the left of the storage boxes, then again to the left at the SL Center (where you can buy tickets for the subway and city buses). Then take the red line, any train going in the direction Mörby Centrum, to Tekniska Högskolan (three stops). Take the exit Körsbärsvägen, and the staircase to your right after the entrance.
The Arlanda Express train (see www.arlandaexpress.com) takes only 20 minutes but costs twice the bus fare. Go from Arlanda to Stockholm Central. From the end of the platform, follow signs with "Tunnelbana Metro" and the blue "T" logo. To the left of the storage boxes you should take a staircase down, then again to the left at the SL Center (where you can buy tickets for the subway and city buses). Then take the red line, any train going in the direction Mörby Centrum, to Tekniska Högskolan (three stops). Take the exit Körsbärsvägen, and the staircase to your right after the entrance.
To Nordita it is now a 10-15 min walk (see the directions on the map). When you come up to the street level from the subway, you will have the main street Valhallavägen on your left hand side, making an S-bend towards the left, around a small park. You should follow that street and continue slightly downhill until you reach a hot-dog stand Tullfritt, at the bottom of a steep street Roslagstullsbacken. Nordita is at the top of that street, across the roundabout.
Instead of walking, you can take the buses 43 or 44 from just outside the subway exit (50 m ahead, along the sidewalk) to the end destination Ruddammen. You can't buy tickets on Stockholm buses, but if you came from the subway, that ticket can be used for transfer.
Going in the other direction, from Nordita to the Central Station or Cityterminalen, you should take a red line subway in the direction T-Centralen or Fruängen to T-centralen.
Taking a taxi from Arlanda to anywhere in central Stockholm will cost approximately 450-500 SEK. Make sure to ask for the fixed Arlanda-Stockholm price! Taking a taxi anywhere within central Stockholm will cost approximately 150 SEK. Taxis accept all major credit cards.
Some taxi companies are: Stockholm Transfer (+46) (0)20-350000, Taxi Stockholm: (+46) (0)8-150000, Taxi 020: (+46) (0)20-202020, and TaxiKurir: (+46) (0)8-300000.
Nordita is housed in two brown-yellow buildings on the grounds of the AlbaNova University Center, just to the left and right in front of the big white main AlbaNova building.
Some airlines fly to Skavsta airport by Linköping, southwest of Stockholm. Take the Flygbussarna airport bus to the City Terminal, and follow instructions above as for bus travel from Arlanda airport (the Skavsta airport buses do not pass S:t Eriksplan).
