Travel information

How to get to ESS Headquarters and Medicon Village


From Copenhagen Airport (CPH)

From Copenhagen Airport (CPH) you take the train from the airport train station (in the main terminal, Terminal 3). Don't forget to buy a ticket either in the machine or by the counter. On platform 1 take any train going to Sweden. Most of the trains have their final destinations in Gothenburg, Kalmar, Kristianstad or Hässleholm. All of them stop in Malmö and in Lund.

The trains go every 20 minutes and the journey takes around 35 minutes to Lund Central Station.

ID Checks

Please be aware that there are border ID checks. At Copehagen Airport your ID will be checked on entering the platform. The train will also stop at the first station in Sweden (Hyllie) and the Swedish police will enter the train to check everyone’s ID. Only passports and European National ID cards (must show nationality) are acceptable as ID.

From Lund Central Station:

We recommend you to take a taxi or the bus from Lund Central Station. If you choose a taxi look for Taxi Skåne or Taxi Lund outside the south entrance of the station. The price is about 110 SEK. The ride takes less than 10 minutes. Please note that the rates aren't regulated in Sweden. Always ask the driver for a cost before you get into the taxi. We recommend you to always use Taxi Skåne or Taxi Lund.

If you want to to go by bus, you need either

  • a local train/bus card (Jojo) with sufficient credit (around 20 SEK per trip). A Jojo card with 200 SEK credit can be purchased at the Skånetrafiken customer center (kundcenter) at the station;
  • a Swedish mobile phone (send an SMS with "LUV" to 72040);
  • a train ticket that includes local buses (the tickets to Lund with Öresundstågen or Pågatågen).

Outside the north entrance of Lund Central Station at bus-stop K (see map), take bus no.1 towards "Östra Torn" or bus no. 6 towards "Ö Linero". They go every 15 minutes during the day and the journey takes around 6 minutes. Get off at the stop called Sparta. From there it is a 2 minute walk to ESS HQ.
