Travel and accommodation
How to get to Lund
Getting to Lund is easy - the best option for international flights is via Copenhagen (Kastrup) airport, which is about 40 minutes away by direct train, over the Oresund bridge.
· Buy your ticket
Purchase your ticket (using a credit card) from the "Skånetrafiken" ticket machines in the hall after arrivals above the platforms. To find the trains go straight ahead for about 50 m. when you come out of Arrivals and you will find the ramps to the platforms, train information and ticket machines - the ticket machines are behind the large clock you will see as you come from Arrivals. When you buy tickets at the machines: Choose "English" - select "Single/enkel" to Lund - via "Öresundsbron" (via the bridge), or follow the instructions here .
The cost will be 140 SEK when paying with card for 1 person.
· Get on the train
The Öresundståg leaves about every 20 minutes from Platform 1 (Spår 1) and goes directly to Lund Central via Malmö. The train Platform 1 is really close to the ticket machines.
Remember:You cannot buy tickets on the trains and you will be asked to pay a fine (1000 SEK - approximately 100 €) when the ticket control finds you without one.
Due to recent changes with border controls the train currently stops for about 10 minutes or so at Malmö where a passport/ID cart for the EU citizens takes place.
When in Lund
Most hotels are a short walk, as the station is almost in the center. For the further away hotels, like Park Inn you can take an urban bus (green bus) on the same ticket as you used to get from the airport (for the continuing journey). Taxis are also available outside the station but can be quite expensive (You will find more information in the e-mail that Vasiliki Simaki sent you on 27/9). The city is quite small, and in general all destinations can be reached on foot.
Buying a bus ticket with card on board will cost you 35 SEK. You can not use cash to bay your tickets when in the bus. Alternatively you can buy period tickets at the Skånetrafiken Customer Centre at Lund Central station.
Regardless where in the center of Lund you choose to stay, the easiest way to go to the conference venues in SOL is either on foot (it will take approximately 15 min. from Lund C) or by taking the Stadsbuss No 1 with direction Östra Torn and stop at Lund Sölvegatan.
For the Park Inn Hotel, you can take the city bus No 1 from the train station (the bus stop is on your right exiting the station) direction Botulfsplatsen Klostergården. You get off at Tetra Pak stop, and you will go ahead for about 500 m.
From the Park Inn by Radisson Lund hotel you can either get to the conference venues by taking the bus No 1 from the bus stop Lund Tetra Pak (the bus goes through the city center and the Lund Central station towards SOL – Lund Sölvegatan) or with the bus which will be available at the entrance of the hotel for the days of the Conference. More specifically, at 8.30 the first three days (4th, 5th& 6thOctober) and 9.30 on the last day of the Conference (7thOctober).
For the University Guest House, you can take the city bus No 1 from the train station (the bus stop is at the square opposite to the station) direction Östra Torn, and you get off at Sparta stop. (This bus stops by the conference venue first).
The University Guesthouse is on walking distance from the venues (15 min.). You can also take the bus No 1 from outside the guesthouse (Lund Sparta) and stop at Lund Sölvegatan.
From Hotel Djingis Khan (Lund Margaretvägen) you can take the Stadsbuss #3 to Lund Centralen and from there with the same ticket bus #1 (with direction Östra Torn) to Lund Sölvegatan stop.
This includes 24 or 72-hour tickets, which could be a good option if you are at one of the hotels slightly further out (see below) - if you arrive at the station from the airport you could buy your 24/72-hour ticket then, at theSkånetrafiken office.
