Travel Information


Travel by air to Norrköping can be achieved through two main routes: via Stockholm’s international airport at Arlanda (ARN), which has connections from all major hubs, or via Linköping’s city airport (LPI) which has daily flights from the major international hub in Amsterdam. In addition, there is the Stockholm Skavsta (NYO) close by in Nyköping which is serving connections to a range of European cities.

From Arlanda there are frequent train services to Norrköping either directly (roughly every two hours) or using the Arlanda Express service to Stockholm’s central station and then direct services to Norrköping which leave at least once per hour. Direct trains typically take around 2 hours to reach Norrköping.

From Linköping a taxi to Norrköping will take approximately 35 minutes while a bus to Linköping’s central station and then a train to Norrköping will take around an hour depending on connections.

From Nyköping there is a frequent airport coach service ( to Norrköping taking approx. 1 hour.

Train services

Train services via Denmark provide an easy and environmentally friendly route to Norrköping with many direct trains crossing the Öresund bridge daily and arriving in Norrköping some four hours later.

Trains can be booked (in English) through the national rail service SJ here with tickets available either as e-tickets sent by e-mail or for collection from ticket machines at the station.

Payments in Sweden

Sweden is a nearly cashless country. Many places in Sweden like restaurants, cafes, kiosks, pharmacies  refuse cash payments and accept cards only. In addition, public transports in most cities do not accept cash payments, either. So you’re not likely to need a great deal of hard currency for your stay in Sweden. Instead, it is advisable to have a credit or debit card that can be used to pay expenses outside your country. Please note that in order to pay or withdraw cash with your credit card it requires that you have a card with chip and PIN (Personal Identification Number). The older magnetic-stripe cards won’t work.
