Getting to Lund from the airport

Travel information to take note of

Although you may be coming from another Shengen Zone country you will be asked to produce a valid id card or passport when entering Sweden.

How to get to Lund by plane

The closest international airport is Copenhagen airport (CPH). There are direct trains from the airport to Lund every twenty minutes and the trip takes about 1 hour. Before boarding the train at the airport you have to go through an id-controll and show your passport. When the train comes to the first stop in Sweden called Hyllie it stops for a border-control. You can stay on the train but you will have to show your passport again. Then the train proceeds to Malmö central station (via a station called Triangeln) where it stops for up to 20 minutes in order to be in sync with the timetable. After that it will continue to Lund, so again you can stay on the train.

An alternative is the regional Malmö/Sturup airport (MMX) which has a few international flights. There are airport buses to Lund approximately every hour.
