Welcome to Malmö in June!
Malmö University (Malmö Högskola in Swedish) is situated right next to the main train station.
Malmö University, Orkanen building, Location for keynote lectures, workshops and panels on the 15th and 16th (click the map for larger version).
The registration and keynotes are on the ground floor of Orkanen right by the main entrance. See this map of the Orkanen building for details of where the workshops takes place.
STPLN, (called FBRKN on google maps) the venue for the cultural event on the 14th (click the map for larger version).
Restaurant Välfärden where the conference dinner takes place is situated across the street from Orkanen.
If you fly here, go to Copenhagen airport (CPH) and take the train across the bridge. There are both regular flights from around the world flying to CPH as well as several low cost airlines from all around Europe.
If you take the train, use bahn.de and search for trains going to Copenhagen, there are regular services from Hamburg direct to Copenhagen. Once you are in Copenhagen you take one of the local trains to Copenhagen Airport and change there to the trains going to Sweden.
The train from the airport across the bridge takes 40 minutes to Malmö Central Station due to the passport controls introduced recently – a stark reminder of the Swedish state’s draconian response to the current political situation. On your way back to the airport the journey is only 20 minutes since there are no controls in that direction. The tickets are 110 SEK (12€) one way and you buy them in the “Skånetrafiken” ticket machines in the waiting hall above the trains.
In Malmö you will be able to walk to most places, but should you need to use the local busses you cannot get a ticket on the bus but you have to use one of the following options:
Download the app and follow the instructions at https://www.skanetrafiken.se/sa-reser-du-med-oss/sa-koper-du-biljett/i-appen/
Or you buy a 24 h or 72 h bus ticket from the Skånetrafiken office at Malmö Central Station, or at the northern entrance of Malmö Triangeln station.
There is also the option of Malmöbybike, where you can rent bikes for an hour. It costs 165 SEK for 72 hours. You can pay at some of the bike stations, including the one closest to the university at “Anna Lindhs plats”.
Accomodation is unfortunately relatively expensive in Sweden.
If you are looking for the most comfortable option we recommend:
If you are travelling on a budget there are a few hostels but the closest one to the University is STF Malmö City Hostel & Hotel, which you can find at booking sites together with other hostels.
Apart from this airbnb.com and couchsurfing.com are your best options
