By bike

It is not for nothing that Linköping is called the bike town. Major efforts have been made to create bicycle lanes both inside and outside the central parts. Although we are Sweden's fifth largest municipality, distances are limited. If you start from the main square in the city center, most of it is within a radius of 4 kilometers.

As a tourist and residents, you can benefit greatly from the maps below. It is also possible to visit Linköping's tourist office, located at Linköping & Concert & Congress for at printed map.
