Copenhagen to Stockhom?

I will be travelling in May to Scandinavia. Can anyone advise me of the best way to get from Copenhagen to Stockholm.? My first preference is to fly. SAS seems very expensive. Sterling Airlines is not flying in May. I have been advised that there is an airling that flies from Malmo to Stockholm. How easy is it and how much time does it take to get from Copenhagen to the Malmo airport? Any other suggestions? How is the train? Thanks for your assistance.

Allright since you say flying is your first preference:

There is a bus from Copenhagen to Malmö Airport it takes about an hour http://www.graahundbus.dk/index737.htm

There is an airline offering cheaper tickets than SAS called Flyme http://www.flyme.se/en

You find more information about Malmö Airport her:

An alternative - even timewise I think considering you have to be at the airport early to check in and go through security - would be to catch a train.

It takes about 5 hours from central Copenhagen to central Stockholm - when flying you still to get from Arlanda to central Stockholm.

You find the Danish Railways here: www.dsb.dk/servlet/Satellite…

I really think that the train is easier since you go from city to city and do not have all the trouble of going through long airport lines, checking luggage. I took the train to and from Copenhagen three years ago and really enjoyed the ride. But I happen to like trains much more than planes anyway. You can walk around and see things en route.

Have fun.

Hi nosaat!

I would recommend you to take the X2000 train from Copenhagen to Stockholm. It isn't too expensive and it take only about 5 hours. I you fly it would probobly take around the same amount of time if you include check in time, and getting to and from airports. And if you take the train you will get a chance to see a bit of Sweden flashing by... The price is probobly the same as cheap airfare, but then again, you don't have to pay for taxi or bus to get to and from airports.

Check out this page for train tickets: www.sj.se/sj/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=10&l=en

Also check out Fly Nordic airline for cheap airfare: www.flynordic.com/…

Malmö Aviation fly from Malmö airport: http://www.malmoaviation.se/o.o.i.s/1076

You can also take the bus and that is very cheap, but the trip is about 13 hours long... www.safflebussen.se

I agree with the posters above: take the Swedish high speed train from Copenhagen to Stockholm. This is a fast, convenient, and enjoyable ride. And you can enjoy the scenery en route.
