Polstjärnegatan 14 comes first, then pass the gate towards a big house with graffitti, on the other side of that house is Polstjärnegatan 10. Look for Learn Do Share and GoKinema signs. The bus Gul Express also stops at Lindholmen. Commuter traffic website http://www.vasttrafik.se/

Getting to Lindholmen by ferry
Take the ferry “Alvsnabben” which runs from Rosenlund (below Jarntorget and just past Draken Theatre) to Lindholmspiren and takes about 5 minutes. Alvsnabben runs as follows: Klippan – Eriksberg – Lindholmspiren – Lundbystrand – Rosenlund – Lilla Bommen. For this you need a ticket, the same ticket as you use for the Vasttrafik buses and trams. From Rosenlund the ferry leaves “mot Klippan” on Saturday and Sunday but not very frequently. Bus is better during weekends. Weekdays however the ferry goes often and is free of charge.

Getting to Lindholmen by car
From the bridge Gotaalvbron, Tingstadstunneln, E6, E20 and highway 45 drive towards Norra Alvstranden. Take a left under the railway to Lindholmen. Continue along Karlavagnsgatan to Polstjarnegatan.
