There are two magnificent canals in the Linköping area, enabling you to go in your own boat all the way to the city center during the summer season!
From Berg to the center of Linköping: Head down the impressive staircase locks Bergs slussar, the major attraction along the Göta Canal, and continue onto lake Roxen. Cross the lake, and head onto the Kinda Canal. Notice that you should verify if pre-booking is required as well as if the measures of your boat are ok (the canal is quite shallow).
Visit gotakanal.se och kindakanal.se for information about the canals´opening hours, reservations, harbors, attractions, accommodation and lots other information!
