To Stockholm by train

Publish date: 14 June 2024

Coming to Stockholm by train? Here's what you need to know.

Stockholm Centralstation is the city's main hub of transportation. So if you're visiting by train or taking the Arlanda Express from Arlanda airport, chances are this is your last stop. The station is centrally located and also connects to the T-Centralen metro station. Some regional and national train lines also stop at Stockholm Södra, Stockholm Odenplan, Flemingsberg, or Älvsjö Station.

Train tickets can only be bought in Stockholm Centralstation's ticket dispensers or online – there's no staffed ticket office, but there are station hosts should you need any assistance or help. Tour & Tickets in the main hall sells tickets for the MTRX train though, and you can buy public transport tickets at SL Center located below the ground floor. There are also several restaurants and shops, and lockers for your bags.

Stockholm Centralstation is also connected to Cityterminalen bus depot, the main hub for regional or international bus travelers. The Flygbussarna airport coaches also make a stop here.
