Here is some information for the website. I hope somebody will structure it
and put it in. (I'm good at providing information, but not very good at web
Some of the websites below are in Swedish only, while others are in English or
have a link to an English version.
Most major European airlines have flights to Göteborg. Information about the
major airport, Landvetter and which companies fly there can be found at:
If you fly from outside Europe, you will have to change flights somewhere.
Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Munich, London, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Paris are
common places to change at.
By boat you can travel from Kiel (http://www.steanaline.se), Newcastle
(http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/), Kristiansand (http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/)
and Fredrikshavn (http://www.steanaline.se).
Göteborg is 3 hours from Stockholm and Copenhagen by High Speed Train, and
approximately as much from Oslo, with a regular train. Summer prices on the
High Speed Trains are usually decent, while they are quite expensive the rest
of the year.
Virgin Express flies from Brussels
Ryanair flies from Stanstead, Glasgow and Frankfurt Hahn to Göteborg Säve
Malmo Aviation flies from Nice in summer
Sterling flies from Milan, Oslo, Nice, Madeira and southern Spain. Rome, Crete
and Barcelona are accessible through Copenhagen or Oslo.
There are a number of charter operators flying between Sweden, southern
Europe, Northern Africa, Turkey, Israel and Thailand. Some of them have spare
seats for sale. It may be worth checking with these companies. If you want
help locating such companies, please contact the Europython team with
information on where you want to travel from.
For most of these, the earlier you book, the better prices you will get.
Bus is the abolutely cheapest alternative from some destinations.
Svenska buss (domestic only)
Säfflebuss (domestic, Olso, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Berlin)
Swebus Express (domestic, Norway, Denmark)

Göteborg.Options to look for are flights to Oslo, Copenhagen or Stockholm,
from where you have a reasonably short bus journey. There are ferries to
Sockholm from Finland and Estonia and between Poland/Germany and southern
