Map and Directions


From Arlanda, Skavsta and Bromma Airport:

The easiest way is to take airport shuttle. It starts just outside the airport terminal and drops you off at Cityterminal, the main bus terminal in Stockholm city. Please notice that they only accept card-payments onboard the bus, no cash. Buy tickets online, also cheaper.

From Arlanda Airport you can also choose to take the high-speed train, Arlanda Express. The train is more expensive than the bus, but it gets you into the city in 20 minutes instead of 40 minutes.
From Cityterminal you can walk, take the Underground or bus.

We have described the way from outside Centralstationen (see below) it is the building next to Cityterminal.
From Central station (train) and Cityterminal:

Follow the signs and take escalators down to the Underground. The station is T-centralen. Take the southbound green or red line one stop to Gamla Stan station. Choose the exit Gamla Stan.
Turn right and walk one block, then turn left into the street Tyska Brinken. Walk 300 meters and you will arrive at Kindstugatan 1.
Please note that Tyska Brinken will change name after 200 meters to Kindstugatan.

Walking distance is about 15 minutes. From City Terminal follow the signs to Centralstationen and turn to right onto the street Vasagatan. Walk across the bridge (Vasabron) and then straight on to the street Riddarhusgränd which changes name to Stora Nygatan. Now you are in the Old Town. When you see an intersecting street with the name Tyska Brinken turn left. Walk about 200 meters and you are at Kindstugatan 1.

From outside the Centralstation take bus nr 53 to station Mälartorget. The stop is about the same place as the underground station.
