Overview

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden!

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden

Reach Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden, by an early morning train from Copenhagen (5h15 trip). This stunningly beautiful city is built on 14 islands and is surrounded by hundreds of rocky islets. Its location on the shores of the Baltic Sea contributes to extreme seasonal variations, from frozen lakes in winter to peaceful evenings in summer.

About Sweden


Being surrounded by water, the city offers a feel of adventure to all those who visit it. Start your day in historical streets of the charming Gamla Stan and watch the Changing the Guard Ceremony at the Royal Castle. Continue to Södermalm Island to shop in Stockholm’s designers’ and fashion boutiques around Nytorget square. Stockholm’s unique appeal is one of the reasons why it is more and more popular among tourists. Matching other charismatic European destinations, Stockholm has a vibrant cultural scene, with exhibitions, museums and concerts. Lose yourself in the Nationalmuseum to see a superb collection of works dating from the medieval period to the 20th century.

After enjoying a fika (coffee break) with a cinnamon bun, you can relax at the Strandvägen waterfront or on the rooftop of the Kulturhuset.

Go to Drottninggatan, a pedestrian street in the city centre where you will find fashionable shops, design and souvenir shops and department stores.

    Stockholm to Copenhagen |
    "We were very happy that we travelled 1st class and we enjoyed the trip through the Swedish countryside. The only downside was that the train stopped out of the station in Copenhagen and the lift wasn't working so we had to lug our suitcases up a flight of stairs. The complimentary SIM card was gratefully received, thank you. "

    A long trip |
    "About 10 hours, and wondering why we couldn't buy 1st class for the trip. First class did exist and it was disappointing as the extra room would have been great for such a long journey. "

    Avoid the Airport Hassle |
    "We travelled through Scandinavia and decided that we would try the train as an alternative to flying between Oslo and Stockholm. We're delighted we did , we walked to Oslo central from our hotel , had a comfortable , relaxed train ride to Stockholm where we met another traveller from Australia as well as a local Swede and had time to talk, relax and arrive rested into Stockholm central. We then walked to our hotel in Stockholm. Train - an awesome option if you are staying in city centres. "

    A nice way to travel |
    "The train journey was a nice relaxing way to get from Helsinki to Stockholm and took the stress out of arriving at the airport well ahead of a flight. I booked first class tickets, which as a surprise, afforded the opportunity to use the 'First Class Lounge' facilities prior to departure. The lounge was very comfortable and here were plenty of food and beverage options available to the lounge guests. Business travellers were also well catered for. If you are travelling as a couple and want seats side-by-side, make sure you stipulate this at time of booking. Unfortunately I was allocated two seats, one behind the other and my partner and I had to sit separately. If you are a tourist make sure you request a window seat as these appeared to be allocated to business travellers who weren't interested in the scenery - unlike me. Overall a very pleasant and confortable way to travel. I'd certainly do it all again. "

    NOT WORTH FIRST CLASS |
    "Recently travelled Oslo - Stockholm and decided to go First Class - what a waste of money. The seats were wider and slightly more leg room than Second Class - but thats all. No food or drink or anything else was included in the fare. The train was at best average in terms of amenities and cleanliness - apart from the toil;ets which were an absolute disgrace. The train I was on probably had it's hey day in the 60's - but was well past it's prime. "

    Copenhagan - Stockholm by Rail |
    "Roomy carriage, plenty of leg room and reasonable space to store luggage. Laptop plug in, table for food and computer/games with Wi-Fi access available. I would have liked a faster train (ie shorter journey). "

    Training from copenhagen  |
    "The first trip from copenhagen to stockholm was good except we got on the train without reservations. Learnt from then on to make sure we had reservations on the main trips. No problems. Always on time. Very comfortable and always spoke in their language, finishing with English. Will be using the train system again soon. "
