The European Aniridia Conference (EAC) 2024 will be held in the hotel of Blique by Nobis in central Stockholm. In 1930, world-famous architect Sigurd Lewerentz designed a warehouse for Philips, and today in the very same building you can enjoy a contemporary hotel. The property consists of a hotel, two restaurants, several bars, flexible spaces for meeting and events, a courtyard and a rooftop bar with a breath-taking view over Stockholm.

Accommodation and meals
The accommodation and meals will be at the hotel Blique by Nobis, the same as the conference venue (see above for more information).
The conference organisers have secured a limited number of reduced-rate hotel rooms to make the trip to the EAC 2024 easier. We strongly recommend to book as soon as possible, as Stockholm is busy this time of the year. When you have concluded your registration process you will receive a booking link for the hotel booking with information and the special rates for the EAC 2024. You will be asked to secure your booking with a credit card.
Stockholm Arlanda airport
Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is located 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Stockholm City.
You can actually reach our conference hotel with a direct train from the airport by using the commuter trains (operated by the public transport company in Stockholm, SL).
The trains to Stockholm depart twice an hour from Arlanda Central Station in Sky City (between Terminal 5 and Terminal 4). The total travel time between the airport and Stockholm is about 40 minutes. You should disembark at Stockholm Odenplan station, which is the first stop in Stockholm (and before the Stockholm City station). From the platform just follow signs for the exit “Vanadisvägen” and when you come out of the station there is a 400 meters (0.25 miles) walk to the hotel.
You can also choose a direct bus to the hotel. Flygbussarna Airport Coaches depart every 10–15 minutes between Arlanda Airport and the City Terminal (located next to the Central Station). Make sure to take the right bus as there are several destinations. The travel time from Arlanda is 35–45 minutes depending on traffic. You should disembark at the bus stop Norra Stationsgatan and then there is a 400 meters (0.25 miles) walk to the hotel.
Another way from the airport is using The Arlanda express train, which provides a shuttle service between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Stockholm Central Station. The platform is easily accessible underneath the arrival terminals. The trains depart every 10 minutes in rush hour traffic, and every 15 minutes at other times. Travel time: 18 minutes. From Stockholm Central station you have a 30 minutes walk or you take the metro to the metro stop Odenplan from where you have about 500 meters (0.3 miles) walk to the hotel.
Bromma Stockholm Airport, Skavsta Airport, and Västerås Airport.
Flygbussarna Airport Coaches operate all airports, with departures timed with arrivals and departures at the airports. Travel time: 20 minutes (Bromma), 80 minutes (Skavsta) and 80 minutes (Västerås).
Taxi services are available at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Bromma Airport. The travel time from Stockholm Arlanda Airport is approximately 40 minutes, depending on the time of day. From Bromma Airport, it is approximately 15 minutes, depending on the time of day. Credit cards are readily accepted.
Please note: Taxi fares in Sweden are not regulated, which means that prices can vary significantly between companies. With this in mind, we recommend that you use the services of well-known firms like Taxi Stockholm, Taxi 020 and Taxi Kurir and also that you use a fixed price scheme.
It is also possible to reach Stockholm by train. There are direct overnight trains from Berlin and Hamburg and if for instance you have a flight to Copenhagen airport in Denmark, you can get to Stockholm with a direct train from the airport in about five hours.
The European Aniridia Conference will be conducted in English while the parallel Aniridia Nordic Meeting will be in Scandinavian languages.
