Experience Norrköping
Norrköping is the small city with big city amenities and home to over 129,000 people 170 km south of Stockholm. The river flowing through the centre of the city not only offers the opportunity to stroll alongside its banks and enjoy the flowers and trees but also the unique chance of a few hours fishing as the river is stocked annually with salmon.

The old Industrial landscape
At the previous turn-of-the-century Norrköping was a proud industrial city supported by its many textile mills. The imposing brick buildings around the river have been preserved and revived. Attractions here today include museums, cafés, restaurants and a university with 5,500 students.

The city center
The easiest and by far the most enjoyable way of getting around Norrköping is on the tram. The yellow trams are part of the public transport system, however, there is an old tram with wooden seating dating back to the last century still in service. The centre of the city has much to offer in the way of shopping centres as well as small shops and boutiques, cafés and restaurants. There are also many beautiful parks and areas of interest including the ancient rock carvings at Himmelstalund.

Shopping in Norrköping

Take a day trip
Just outside Norrköping lies the magical area of Kolmården with its unusual countryside and numerous small fishing lakes and rambling paths. The Kolmården Wildlife Park with dolphin show, children’s wonderland, tropical house and the kings of the wild, the lions, is the largest of its kind in the Nordic region. A 30-minute drive east of Norrköping lies the idyllic archipelago village of Arkösund. From here it is so easy to take one of the Skärgårdslinjens tour boats to the many small islands and islets which make up the Östgöta archipelago. Turn your sights southwards and the Göta Kanal, flowing through the Östergötland countryside, is an engineering feat of world-renown. The canal is 190 km long with 58 locks.
