The “Opera Train”

Opera på Skäret is the only opera house in the world with it’s own train station! For a few years now, we’ve had vintage trains running from Stockholm Central Station directly to Opera på Skäret. This train journey is a completely unique culture/ nature experience. To travel in a lovely vintage train through the Swedish countryside in the summertime, while having a delicious 3 -course dinner and then to enjoy opera art on the highest level, with the remarkable acoustics of the opera house being the icing on the cake!

More information about our train package will follow.

The outbound journey starts before midday and you will return to Stockholm before midnight.

You can book the Opera train by calling our Box Office: tel +46 580-71100
or via email: No booking fee will be added.

NB! The ticket for the opera performance is included in the train package. Don’t book your ticket online first!

The Opera train is a collaboration betweeen Opera på Skäret and SKÅJ (Stockholms Kultursällskap för Ånga och Järnväg).
