Travel to and in Lund

Lund is a small, old University town just north of Malmö, on the Swedish side of the Öresund which separates Denmark from Sweden. Lund University was founded in 1666 and we have more than 40 000 students. 

Copenhagen airport (CPH) has a direct train link to Lund, which takes about 45 minutes. Please check with There you type CPH airport and “Lund C” for Lund, in order to find train times. You can purchase train tickets at CPH airport.

When in Lund, a lot can be done on foot. Our learning laboratories are held at different locations in the town, but regardless of where we will be for the specific learning lab that you are visiting, you can be sure the facility is easily reached by foot from your hotel. There is also the possibility to get a so called 'JOJO card' to load with money and then use for public transportation, or to rent bikes. A one-year seasonal card costs 75 SEK (like 10 USD) and for that you get to pick up a bike at one of the many bicycle stations and then leave it at another (you have 30 minutes of biking for free).
