With some terrific day trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it wouldn’t be half as easy to explore all that Norrkoping, 25 miles away, has to offer. Kolmården should be toward the top of your list here. Yxbacken Ski Slope and Norrkoping Art Museum are excellent attractions too. Vadstena is another popular destination. It’s 25 miles away and boasts a range of fascinating things to do. Vadstena Castle, Vadstena Abbey and Klosterkyrkan are just the start.
