Linkoping General Information
Urbane Linkoping is a lovely city in Ostergotland County, Sweden with impressive medieval landmarks, a notable high-tech industry and a world-class university. While doubtless no coincidence that Palo Alto, California, the home of Stanford University, Hewlett-Packard and Facebook, is a sister city, Linkoping clearly shines on singular merits.
The city of 100,000 people was a veritable blip on the map before the arrival of aerospace giant Saab AB in 1937. Today however, Linkoping is a lively hub with a dynamic arts and culture scene and easy connections to Stockholm, Malmo and on the other side of the Oresund Strait, Copenhagen, Denmark. Superb points of interest in Linkoping include the grand city cathedral, a remarkable Gothic monument built in the early 13th century. Others range from the Ostergotlands Lansmueums to gorgeous Tradgardsforeningen, or Garden Society Park. Vallaskogen, or Valla Wood, is a pre-eminent recreation area and Ekenas Slott’s renown as a first-rate Renaissance castle is widespread throughout Sweden. For a special treat, catch a performance by the Linkoping Symphony Orchestra or, alternatively, the city’s Swedish Elite League hockey team in action at the excellent Cloetta Center.
