Transportation & Parking

Buses and Transportation

By the time the show ends, public transportation will have stopped for the day. You can book a seat on our shuttle bus for SEK 70 and this will take you both to and from Artipelag. The bus departs in connection with the end of the show and the journey takes about 25 minutes.

The shuttle bus is booked and paid for via Ticketmaster at the same time as your ticket. Please note that your bus ticket must be booked no later than 3 pm the day before the show.

Departures from Vasagatan

The bus departs at 5.30 pm on weekdays and 4 pm and 5.30 pm on Saturdays.

Our shuttle buses are operated by Traveller. They depart from Vasagatan 24, outside the McDonalds restaurant that is located under the Klarabergsviadukten. A sign on a post with the text ”Artipelag” marks the departure point.

Cars and Parking

For those who wish to arrive with their own vehicles, we have many parking spaces available.

From the exit of Highway 222, a narrow road winds between fields, meadows and other stunning archipelago nature. Therefore, we humbly ask everyone who arrives in their own vehicle to drive slowly and enjoy nature, thus showing consideration for other cars, buses and people.

"I think that through the art of circus, we reflect Artipelag: how Björn and Lillemor made the impossible possible when those with great visions combined their strong work ethic to create this unique place. We are inspired by the archipelago in winter and I forsee a breathtaking, finely serene and contemporary show with artists who, through their arts, show what is needed to make the impossible possible - cooperation, balance, trust ... an excellent start for a really lovely Christmas."
