Don’t miss the train! A fun new station with art.

Service began in July of 2017 when Stockholm Odenplan Station and Stockholm City Station were both connected to the subway, leading suburban train lines into the city. Commuters often missed their trains in the winter—when changing to the subway involved braving the cold on the outdoor station platform. However, now that the tunnel connects these stations to the subway, commuting is much easier. Stockholm’s subway is famous for being the world’s longest art museum. In total there are fourteen works of art in the new and spacious station areas, eight in Stockholm City Station, and six in Stockholm Odenplan Station. These art projects chosen from 400 ideas are all worth seeing. Be careful not to get too absorbed in the art and miss your train!
