Lund is a charming and expanding city as well as an old University town and combines ancient
with modern. It is said that you can spend your whole life here without finding all the quiet little
corners and beautiful buildings. Enjoy the museums, buzzing market squares, shops, department
stores, cafés and restaurants that are just a stone’s throw away.
In the surroundings of Lund there are delightful hiking trails, castles and other interesting sights
that you also shouldn’t miss.
Across the Öresund bridge is the Danish airport Kastrup, the international airport of Copenhagen.
The Copenhagen airport is not only Denmark’s biggest airport but in fact the biggest airport in
Scandinavia. Frequent commuter trains runs from Copenhagen airport to Lund and you can reach
Lund city center by train in 40 minutes. We recommend that you take the train since it is affordable
and very convenient. Train tickets must be purchased from ticket machines at the airport. You
cannot buy tickets on board the trains.
Lund can also be reached via Sturup Airport (MMX) and buses are operating between the airport
and Lund. Bus tickets are available online: http://www.flygbussarna.se/malmo .
Taxis are available just outside the terminal at both Copenhagen airport and Sturup airport. You
should always ask for the price before the trip. Most taxi companies operating at the airports have
agreed on a set price for journeys between the airport and Lund, as well as to other destinations.
The MR in RT meeting is being held in Palaestra. This building is situated next to Lund University
Main Building and also close to the Lund Cathedral. You can easily reach Palaestra by foot from
