Gamla Linköping Open-Air Museum

Travel in time and experience life in a small Swedish city a hundred or more years ago. In the Old Town neighbourhood you will find wooden houses, cobblestone alleys, gardens and many museums. Here too are shops and crafts, a restaurant and café. A short walk through the Vallaskogen nature reserve takes you to Valla Farm, with museums showing the history of the countryside, farm animals, a large play area and a miniature golf course.

Welcome to Gamla Linköping - a place for play and curiosity, laughter and memories, a place to experience beauty and relaxation.
