Getting to Lund

The closest airports are Copenhagen (CPH) and Malmö (MMX) from which Lund can be reached, by direct train or bus, respectively, within 45 minutes. See www.momondo.com or similar for discount airfares.

Overnight train connections, through Copenhagen, serve Amsterdam, Basel, and Prague, train-rides to Berlin or Hamburg take about six hours (see. www.bahn.de/en).

For further details, see the LU website or your customized travel-options.

Accommodation

Key-note speakers stay at Hotel Duxiana (Map). Furher options range from top-ends such as the Grand Hotel, over Bed and Breakfast locations (for both, see the Lund tourism board) and private accommodation (through airbnb or similar), to true value accommodation. When booking directly with a hotel, ask for the University negotiated rate (which is about 15% lower than the going rate). Discount crawlers such as www.momondo.com or www.trivago.com may offer yet lower prices.

Life at Lund

‘A College Town With a Bit of Viking Mayhem’, as a New York Times author recently called it, easy-to-navigate Lund is home to Scandinavia’s largest university, enjoys the mild Northern climate of the economically strong Öresund region, and other good things from a thriving restaurant scene, over low unemployment and state-funded daycare, to high taxes on labor and luxuries. Read the University section about life at Lund.
