TravelplanBy trainTo travel from Europe to Sweden by train is both fast and convenient, especially since the Öresundsbron Bridge between Sweden and Denmark opened. SJ trains travel most of the long-distance routes from Oslo, Copenhagen and Berlin as well as within Sweden. When travelling with the high-speed train X2000 from Malmö in southern Sweden, it takes about 4.5 hours to Stockholm. Trains between Stockholm and Gävle leave approximately once every hour and the journey takes 90 minutes. The railway station in Gävle is centrally located and there are also bus stops for city, rural and regional buses. More information and timetables can be found at: www.sj.se

By airStockholm Arlanda International Airport is Gävle’s nearest airport and is located 140 km south of Gävle and 40 km north of Stockholm. From the airport there are trains to Gävle every hour and the journey takes 60 minutes. For more information visit: www.arlanda.se

In GävleIn Gävle, it is most convenient to travel by foot, as most everything is centrally located. Walking from the Central Station to the Gävle Concert Hall takes about 10–12 minutes and in between lies the main town square with shopping malls, markets and hotels.

To the extent that transport is required during the conference, participants will be transported to the various activities in buses running on biogas. The buses will also have an ECO system that shows fuel consumption, speed, location, etc.
