Arrival by plane

There are two airports close to Lund: one is Malmö (Sturup) Airport located 30 km south-east of Lund. The other one is Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup) which is in Denmark.


Sturup has frequent connections with Stockholm but only few regular international flights. There is a bus service from the airport to central Lund, usually in connection with planes from Stockholm. Taxi should cost around 250 SEK. Be sure to check the price before you take the taxi. There are unfortunately now several non-serious drivers. 30 minutes drive.


Most people traveling to Lund will come through Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup. The trains across the bridge to Sweden, Öresundstågen, leave frequently (every 20 minutes) from Copenhagen Airport to Malmö C, where you may have to change trains for Lund C. The travel time is about one hour, and tickets cost 100 SEK.


The train station in Lund is the station in Sweden with the most train arrivals and departures, with connections to all parts of Sweden. The local trains are called Pågatåg.


From Malmö Central railway station there is a fairly convenient service of local trains (blueish - purple) running every 20 minutes or so, less frequently on evenings and weekends. Tickets can only be bought in special vending machines. The homepage of Skånetrafiken contains timetables.


Trains leave frequently (every 20 minutes) going from Copenhagen/Østerport via the Öresund bridge to Malmö Central railway station, passing Copenhagen Central railway station and Kastrup Airport. A single ticket from Copenhagen/Kastrup to Malmö costs 80 SEK, and to Lund 100 SEK.
