Swedish Day trains

Swedish day trains, high speed link between Stockholm, Copenhagen, Göteborg, Malmö and Oslo.

Sweden is a beautiful country stretching right up to Lapland and the North Pole and there is no better way to see it than by train. The X2000 and X3000 are Sweden’s high-speed trains, travelling at a speed of up to 200km/h using state-of-the-art tilting technology to help them negotiate bends without slowing down. The X2000 and X3000 use the capital Stockholm as their hub to make their smooth silent journeys across the country day and night. The high speed trains also operate on the Stockholm to Copenhagen (Denmark) route.

  • "Day trip to Stockholm"    
    Recently visited relatives in Sweden. Decided on a day trip to Stockholm from Gothenburg, return. Option to fly, drive or train. Chose train for convenience, arrival to central Stockholm, easy access to all that I wanted to see and do. No fuss with having to travel from airport to city...    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Oslo to Stockholm"    
    The service on the train was great. The ride was smooth and comfortable. We traveled first class.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable Train Ride"    
    Train was on time departing Oslo and arriving Stockholm. The train was a bit older than we would have expected but was still comfortable and clean. Complimentary coffee/tea together with mandarins and mini cupcakes a pleasant customer service. Had to sit backwards and would definitely have preferred forward facing seats. Staff were accommodating. All in all, a comfortable/on time journey.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Trip to Flam, Norway."    
    Great trip, good, seats and food.  
  • "Helpful staff and very comfort"    
    It is always reassuring to have booked seat numbers as everyone rushes for a train, which this leg of our journey had. The train was clean and comfortable even in coach class and the staff at the station very helpful. Going across the Oresund Bridge was disappointing as really couldn't see much. Whilst waiting for the train the platform certainly wouldn't be a place I would want to be in rain or winter as there is no cover.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Copenhagen to Stockholm"    
    Good and comfortable. Unfortunately my husband left his AUSSIe Akubra HAT on the train....Did you find it??? Was not as fast as I expected but an easy way to travel.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "the Trans-sweden"    
    We had to book first class, as the second class was full, but the extra comfort and breakfast, fruit and muffins all journey , and lots of leg room made it a very pleasant trip. Not a lot to see scenically - rolling farmlands, small villages etc.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Difficult to find Platform 26"    
    We followed the sign posts at Copenhagen train station to where we saw it marked at platform 26. We were early and hung around but couldn't see many people - at a point I asked someone and realised you have to go to the end of the platform, catch a lift up and then down and then you are on platform 26, we had to run and almost missed the train which was a bad start. It's quite a nice trip to Stockholm, there's nothing that stands out about the train, not particularly fast or comfortable, just an average journey.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Copenhagen to Stockholm"    
    We recently travelled by train from Copenhagen to Stockholm direct on a fast speed SJ2000 train. The train journey was great and lived up to expectations provided through other online reviews. Both railway stations were pleasant experiences, clean and well looked after, but beware - you need money for the toilets and it is reasonably expensive. The first class experience on the train was good but luggage capacity is limited. Lifting a 20kg suitcase overhead is difficult for aged and short people. The on-board attendant was polite, courteous and helpful. Finding the correct platform at Copenhagen was not well sign posted and warnings need to visible about the time required to walk from platform 5 to platform 28. You need ten minutes to walk the distance and negotiate the negotiate the lifts to cross tracks.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Scandinavia holiday"    
    The trip was fast, pleasant and relaxing and everything you would normally expect of European trains, which we found to be clean and departed and arrived on time. We would certainly recommend this trip to friends and family.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Swedish high speed train"    
    Quite comfortable with good WiFi. Arrived quite relaxed in Copenhagen.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Stockholm to Goteborg smoothly"    
    Enjoyed a comfortable and smooth journey between these major cities, with the convenience of short travel times between rail stations and hotels. Avoided delays faced on air travel. on board, staff friendly, helpful and committed to making the trip enjoyable. Food and drinks provided on first class added to the comfort and convenience.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "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.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "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.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "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.    Value for money  Convenience
