Travel to Uppsala

The historical city of Uppsala is situated 40 minutes by train north of Sweden´s capital Stockholm and approximately 20 minutes by train from Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

Airport

The Stockholm-Arlanda International Airport is located between Uppsala and Stockholm, 36 km south of Uppsala, and by far the most convenient airport when traveling to Uppsala.

Buses to and from Arlanda

Bus line 801 runs between Arlanda and central Uppsala throughout the day. The journey takes about 45 minutes. You can buy the ticket with a credit card on the bus, but cash is not accepted. There are also vending machines at Arlanda airport terminals 2, 4, and 5 where you can buy a one-way ticket for the bus. Credit cards only. There is a small reduction of the price if you buy it from the vending machine in advance of the journey, compared to buying the ticket on board the bus.
