If travelers need an enjoyable, comfortable way to reach Sweden's capital, trains to Stockholm will be ideal. The city is well suited to arriving by train, with a centrally located main station and a superb public transit system across the entire city. Trains run to Stockholm from various cities with connections to Copenhagen, Oslo, Malmo, and other European cities via Denmark.
Virtually all rail services to Sweden's capital will arrive at Stockholm Central Station. Situated in the Norrmalm neighborhood, Central Station (also known as Stockholm C) has a Metro station attached, making it much easier to head to destinations across the city. Metro lines radiate away from Central in every direction, putting the most remote suburbs within easy reach.
Trains to Stockholm are operated by SJ (the main company running services into the city), as well as Nettbuss, and Oresundstag. Nettbuss offers services from Norway, while Oresundstag specializes in routes from Denmark and southern Sweden.
Taking the train is often the best way to reach Stockholm, especially if passengers are coming from Oslo, Gothenburg, Malmo, or Copenhagen. The city benefits from efficient, high-speed rail links to most Scandinavian cities, and connections from Berlin, Hamburg, or Amsterdam can also make sense if travelers aren't in a hurry. Trains in Sweden tend to be very comfortable and roomy, with onboard services and reliable schedules. Stockholm C is one of the best-connected stations in Europe. Transferring to any part of the city is simple - and easier than arriving by air or bus. Finally, trains aren't usually expensive. They tend to compete well with flights over medium-range distances.
To really benefit from Stockholm's world-class public transport network, passengers should pick up a Travel Card upon arrival at Stockholm C. Cards can be purchased for durations of 24 hours, 72 hours, or seven days, so most vacations will be covered. They let travelers explore the city at discounted rates, so they are a must-have for dedicated sightseers. Stockholm itself is a joy to explore. Aside from the major sights, be sure to visit the Jewish Museum, art-filled green spaces like Djugården, and the charming streets of Gamla Stan,the old town.
