If your trip to Linkoping is all organized but your itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a helping hand.Not too far from the city center, Saab Arena is one attraction you might like to put on your must-see list. If you still have some room on that schedule, Old Town Linkoping and Gamla Linkoping Open-Air Museum will keep you entertained as well.
With some awesome day trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes sense. Without one, it wouldn’t be half as easy to enjoy all that Norrkoping, 25 miles away, has to offer. Soak up the sights starting with Kolmården, Yxbacken Ski Slope and Work Museum. The locals will also probably point you toward Vadstena, 28 miles away. If you can only find time for one attraction here, let it be Vadstena Castle. (But we’re also huge fans of Vadstena Abbey and Klosterkyrkan.)

Linkoping has so much to offer. You could spend a while here and hardly scratch the surface. If you’d like to take in as much as possible in this thriving metropolis, you’ll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving around the city generally comes with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. But don’t stress — a small car like a compact will make this much easier to manage. If you’re aiming to skip town and check out the rocky coastlines that Linkoping is renowned for, you’ll want a vehicle with more cargo space. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you around comfortably.

Whatever you decide, there’s a rental car to suit you in Linkoping.
