DIRECTIONS: FROM ARLANDA AIRPORT TO THE NORDITA APARTMENTS

By bus (Flygbussarna) from Arlanda to Thorildsplan subway station

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 S:t Eriksplan. Walk 300 m to the subway (in Swedish "tunnelbana"; entrances are marked with a blue "T" on white background, see map; see www.sl.se/Templates/SubStart.aspx?id=1906 for information on the Stockholm subways). Go from S:t Eriksplan to Thorildsplan (any train in the direction Hässelby Strand, Alvik or Åkeshov; two stops).

When traveling with a lot of luggage, it may be more convenient to stay on the bus until 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). Take the green line trains in the direction Hässelby Strand, Alvik or Åkeshov to Thorildsplan (six stops).

By train (Arlanda Express) from Arlanda to Thorildsplan subway station

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). Take the green line trains in the direction Hässelby Strand, Alvik or Åkeshov to Thorildsplan (six stops).

From Thorildsplan subway station to the apartments

At Thorildsplan subway station, take the left exit just after the ticket booths. You should see a small Café (with the flags of Sweden and Skåne outside) to your left when you come up the stairs, and a side street to the highway Drottningholmsvägen on your right. Walk along Drottningholmsvägen towards the roundabout. Gyllenborgsvägen is the first street in the left hand side.

DIRECTIONS: FROM THE NORDITA APARTMENTS TO NORDITA

By subway

Take the subway from station Thorildsplan, any train in the direction T-Centralen, Hagsätra, Högdalen or Skarpnäck, to T-Centralen (six stops). Cross the platform to the red line, and take a 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 apartments, you should take a red line subway in the direction T-Centralen or Fruängen to T-centralen, cross the platform, and take a green line train in the direction Hässelby Strand, Alvik or Åkeshov to Thorildsplan.
