Map and Directions


From the main entrance of the Central Railway Station/Main Bus Terminal, exit out onto a street called Vasagatan with a McDonald's on the opposite side of the street. Turn left onto Vasagatan, and follow it about 500 meters until you reach a square called Norra Bantorget. Pass by the square. On the other side of the square, Vasagatan changes names to Upplandsgatan, and there we are at number 2A, the main entrance is on the street corner. The night entrance is a little bit further on the same side of the street.

The nearest underground: Hötorget
Bus stop: Norra Bantorget (bus number 53 and 69)
