How to get from Arlanda Airport to Stockholm
The Stockholm/Arlanda Airport is located about 40 km north of Stockholm.
You will find taxis just outside the Arrival Hall at the airport. Note that taxi fares may differ substantially. Settle the price before getting into the taxi. You can share the taxi with other people (same price for up to 4 persons). Here you can find updated pricing information on taxis:
There is a fast train service from Arlanda to Stockholm City. The travel time is 20 min and there is a train every 15 min. Prices can be found here:
Buses leave the airport every 10 minutes for the City Terminal in central Stockholm, near the Central Station. The bus ride takes about 35 minutes. From the City Terminal you may either take a taxi to your final destination in Stockholm or take the underground from the station "T-centralen". Underground stations are marked with a blue T on a white background. You can also ask the bus driver to give you a "flightbus taxi", which means that you start off with the bus to the City Terminal and from there continue with a taxi to your destination in Stockholm.
