Travel and Accommodation

Hotel Suggestion

This is quite busy time in Lund and we don't have too many options

  • Elite Hotel Ideon 10 min by bus from Lund C. 15 min by bus and bike and 45 min walk to ESS site (where code camp will be held). They offer rooms with windows for 8802SEK for 7 nights and without windows (artifical windows) for 6996 SEK. Hotel Lobby is spacious and should be good for evening activities. There are few eating options close by but not that many. City center is 25min walk and 10min by bus, which gives more opportunities.
  • Lundia Hotel, downtown Lund. 25min to ESS site by bus and 1h10min walk. They offer rooms for 10465 SEK for 7 nights. There are plenty of eating options close to hotel.

All hotel rates are for 7 nights (Sep 2nd to 9th) include breakfast and ESS discount.

Tour of ESS

We hope to arrange a tour of the ESS (now >40% complete). This may be on the morning of September 4th.

Getting to Lund/venue


Bus 20 from the station to ESS site also passes the Ideon Elite Hotel (distinctive tower block with colour changing glass).  Local buses are 25 SEK per trip (up to one hour ? with changes of bus allowed), but a pre-paid Jojo card or a phone app will give a 10% discount, see then choose translate at top right. Note that your train ticket from Copenhagen or similar can be shown to the bus driver for an inclusive bus trip.

Check trains or buses here: where you can see maps of the routes.

Copenhagen airport is called "Copenhagen Kastrup", Lund railway station is "Lund C" for Lund Centrum, the Ideon Elite Hotel bus stop is "Lund Ideon Gateway".

Alas bus 20 seems not to run on a Saturday or Sunday, which can result in a hideous journey to the Ideon Elite with up to 2 changes of bus and/or some walking involved, else pay for a taxi.
