Linköping is easily accessible by train as well as by car with its quite favorable traffic situation between Gothenburg and Stockholm. Cheap flight connections are offered by Stockholm International Airport, from which Linköping can be reached in just over two hours by train.
The most favorable time for traveling to southern Sweden is the months from May to September, when the average daily temperatures are above +15°C. May and June also offer the advantage of the fewest rainy days and the greatest number of sunny hours.
Linköping is often confused with Lidköping. This happens even to the Swedes, and we also like to make the mistake again and again. Lidköping is located on the Vänern River, not far from Läckö Castle. Linköping, on the other hand, is located near Norrköping and thus in Östergötland. With almost 150,000 inhabitants, Linköping is larger than Norrköping and even Sweden’s fifth largest city (after Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Uppsala).
Linköping, like Uppsala and Lund, is a real student city. You can see it on the countless bicycles in the city center. And the many cafés and pubs. The central market square (Stora Torget) resembles a single large outdoor terrace. Here you like to sit outside, drink a coffee or a beer and look at the sun. Linköping University has around 27,000 students. The university is young; it has only been around since the late 1960s.
