Metro near Friends Arena

Since Friends Arena isn’t located in the central parts of Stockholm, many people reach it by public transport. The most convenient option is to choose the commuter train, which only takes seven minutes from Stockholm City. In this case you get off at Solna Station and have a walk of about ten minutes to the arena. You can also get here by metro from the central parts of Stockholm. The metro station is located a little bit further from Friends Arena, and you will need to walk for about 15-20 minutes to get there.

Find parking close to Friends Arena

If you can avoid driving to Friends Arena, we strongly recommend that you leave the car at home. This is because the parking possibilities around the arena aren’t great – the best option is found at Mall of Scandinavia nearby but the spots tend to fill up quickly during big events. Going by public transportation is definitely the best option in this case.

Note! In July Friends Arena will change its name to Strawberry Arena.
