How to get here and accommodation

While Jönköping has an airport, few companies fly directly here. Instead, it is easier to fly to a close-by airport and take local transportation from there. 

The best airports (in this order) are:
- Gotenburg Landvetter + 1.5h bus (flixbus and bus4you have direct lines to Jönköping)

- Copenhagen Airport Kasturp + 3h train (train goes directly from the airport, but at least one change is necessary. Book on:

- Malmö / Växjö / Nyköping (Stockholm Skavsta) + bus / train 

Jönköping is a small town, meaning that all city-based hotels are fine for staying at. 

Recommended accommodation: 
- The Grand Hotel (old school class)

- Elite Stora hotellet (business casual)

- Vox hotel (modern and trendy + vegan friendly)

- Best Western John Bauer (central city)

- Best Comfort (semi-budget and close to venue)
