Fotografiska is located by the seafront on Stadsgårdshamnen, between Birka Cruises and Viking Line boat terminals. You can easily walk along the water from Slussen or Gamla Stan.

If using public transportation, there are several options. The nearest subway station is Slussen, which is accessible by both the green and red subway lines. Exit Slussen at the bus terminal, take a right then walk past the bus terminal to a pedestrain crossing. Cross the street, take a right and continue walking straight on (past the Birka Cruises terminal) till you reach Fotografiska.
