High-speed train to Sweden

Thanks to SJ’s high-speed train («Snabbtåg») you can travel from Oslo S to Stockholm Central Station in about five hours. If you travel with the earliest departure, you will be in Sweden’s capital by lunch time! Stockholm is a fantastic city, and a remarkable weekend destination for the whole family. SJ has five daily departures during weekdays, three on Saturdays and four on Sundays each way. Read more on the highspeed train.

Enchanting and regal

Charming and colorful

A walk around the old town (Gamla Stan) is almost mandatory. With its gorgeous cobbled streets and colorful renaissance buildings, these streets are among the best preserved in Europe.
