How to get to OTP in Älvsjö

· Via air · Via train · By car · Via subway

Via air

  1. From Arlanda airport you take the bus (Flygbussarna) to the city. This will cost about SEK 89 (June 03) and take about 40 minutes. The bus stop (Cityterminalen) is almost on top of the Central Railway Station.
    (If you are very lucky, there is a fair going on in Älvsjö when you are arriving, and in that case there are busses going directly. Check this by selecting "Stockholmsmässan" as your destination.)
    You can also take the express train (Arlanda Express). The train departs every 15 minutes, takes 20 minutes and cost SEK 180. The train stops at the Central Railway Station.
    Going by taxi is not much more convenient or faster, but much more expensive (about SEK 390). If you do go by taxi, be sure to agree on the price before starting the trip! It is quite likely that you otherwise will have to pay towards SEK 1000!
  2. You then walk down to the railway station, 5 minutes walk, and take the local train, see below. Alternatively you could take a taxi to us but that would cost you almost SEK 200.

Via local train (pendeltåg)

  1. Take the "pendeltåg" from the Central Station (the train station) south to Älvsjö. This will take about 15 minutes and cost about SEK 30. (If you intend to stay a few days, it is worthwhile to buy a strip, "rabattkuponger", instead.)
  2. When you exit the station go right (not left to the Stockholm International Fair).
  3. Follow the foot-bridge, down the stairs, and then turn right crossing the street. Walk another 15 meters towards the crossing with lights for pedestrians, and cross also that street.
  4. You will now have a bank to your right. Continue on the foot path (no cars here at all) about 150 meters towards a yellow building, Ericsson AB. (Armborstvägen 14)
  5. Contact the reception in the yellow building.

The trains to Älvsjö are quite frequent, so you really don't need a time table, but an on line time table can be found at Samtrafiken.

By car

  1. Drive the E4 road south from the city and exit at Fruängen/Västertorp about 5 kilometers from the city.
  2. Turn first left towards Fruängen, continue over the bridge over E4.
  3. At the first roundabout/circulation place turn left.
  4. After 1.5 km at the first roundabout/circulation place on Älvsjövägen turn left.
  5. On your right you will see a parking lot. Park your car here at the guest parking lots.
  6. When you have left your car, find a street sign saying "Armborstvägen", which is where we are located. We are in the yellow building at Armbortvägen 14.
  7. Contact the reception in the yellow building, submit the registation number of the car.

Instead of using the above instructions you may use Google Maps to find the best way to us. Fill in "Armborstv 14, Älvsjö, Sweden" and click "Search Maps"

Via subway

  1. There is no subway station nearby. We recommend taking the "pendeltåg" instead. If you start traveling on the subway go to T-centralen and then walk over to the Central Station (railway).
