Practical information

Getting to Lund C

There are two airports to chose from. The first, and largest, is Copenhagen airport (Kastrup). Although Copenhagen is located in Denmark rather than Sweden, it is still very close to Lund. There are trains going directly and frequently from Kastrup to Lund C and the ride is approximately 35 minutes. Note that you must buy a ticket before entering this train as no tickets are sold aboard. The other airport available is Malmö Airport and there are buses going directly from there to Lund C. Malmö airport is also very close to Lund.

Getting from Lund C to the venue

The walking distance from the train station to the conference venue — Lund University Conference Centre — is a 5-minute walk from the train station and 5-10 minutes walk from most hotels. The map below shows how to walk from the railway station to the venue.

There are two types of buses: the green ones are local (only within Lund) and the yellow ones are regional and offer service within the whole region of Skane. You CANNOT buy tickets on any of these buses. Tickets need to be purchased at a customer service center or specific retailers before boarding. The same is valid for trains. Follow this link for all ticket selling locations in Lund:

You can buy a JOJO card which you load with money (200SEK minimum) and can use on local as well as regional buses via card reader. You can also use JOJO card to buy train tickets at vending machines, customer service centers and retailers. You get 20% off all rides when using JOJO card.

If, and only if, you have a cell phone with a swedish account, you can buy tickets through your phone. In short; send a text message saying "LUV" to 72040:
