Traveling to Uppsala
Traveling to Uppsala is relatively easy. Still, there are multiple
options for getting yourself here from where ever you are now. Below
we detail our recommendation, as well as some alternatives.
- Fly to Stockholm-Arlanda International Airport (IATA code: ARN). Arlanda
is conveniently situated between Uppsala and Stockholm, and is actually
nearer to Uppsala. Most major air carriers fly to Arlanda from all major
European airport hubs, if not directly from your nearest airport.
Note that people younger than 26 years of age can obtain a reduced rate on their
airline ticket if they book with Scandinavian Airlines's youth program (apply here).
- Take the train to Uppsala Central Station. Upon landing, follow
signs for SkyCity where you can purchase a ticket for the
SL-pendeltåg toward Uppsala for 160 kr. Proceed down to the train
and wait on Spår 1 (platform 1). There is a train every
30 minutes at :16 and :46 past the hour. You'll arrive at Uppsala Central Station
in 17 minutes after a brief stop in Knivsta.
- Walk to your hotel that is likely no more than 10 minutes
from Central Station. You may also wish to take a bus or a taxi,
which can be picked up at Central Station. We can help you select the
appropriate bus number and stop. Note that green buses are for

Alternatives to Arlanda

need to take a bus to Stockholm Central Station where you can then
purchase a ticket with SJ to Uppsala. The train to Uppsala leaves
at :11 past each hour from Spår 3 (platform 3) and costs 89 kr.
- Stockholm Västerås Airport: To get to Uppsala, you can either take a direct
bus to Stockholm plus a train from Stockholm to Uppsala (see above) or catch a
local bus to Västerås central station connecting to a direct bus to Uppsala (bus UL 773, UL 774).
As the latter is the faster option, we recommend that one.
