Jordbro Grave Field?

Hello! One of the places I hope to visit on my upcoming trip to Stockholm is the Jordbro Grave Field, a park filled with Iron Age burial monuments. None of the guidebooks I have consulted have mentioned the site, and I have found some inconsistent info online concerning how to take public transit from Stockholm to the grave field. It seems to be about a 25 minute trip. Just curious if anyone has visited the site, and if so, if they have any tips on the best way to get there from Stockholm. Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide!

I have not been there, but I lived in Stockholm for 2 years, so I checked the local transit info.

According to this site, the grave field is a 1 km walk south from the Jordbro pendeltågsstation.

The pendeltåg is the commuter train and covered by an SL card. You will take the train from Stockholm City station. Take the train heading in the direction of Västerhaninge (or Nynäshamn). The winter timetable is here:

The summer timetable usually has fewer trains per hour. The train trip is 29 minutes, but then you need to walk, so I’d suggest you go to googlemaps and print out a map from Jordbro station to Jordbrogravfält. Googlemaps says it is a 12 minute walk to the gravesite.

Stockholm City station just opened last summer, so I haven’t used it, but according to the announcement it is easy to connect from T-Centralen. There should be signs (either to Stockholm City or to pendeltåg). Previously, the pendeltåg departed from Stockholm Central, so this might be what you see in guidebooks.

I’d suggest you stop by the tourist information desk to confirm your plans.

Thanks for posting this.

We visited today and loved it, good for older children too.

I wouldn’t have been aware of the site without this post. And not a cruise shipper in sight.
