While Nyköping is a fairly small municipality, it still boasts a modest collection of historical buildings, museums and a swanky boutique street where you can buy upscale clothing, quality local handicrafts and ornaments. The shops are especially popular during Christmas when they offer a variety of unusual decorations. If you somehow get bored touring the town, Stockholm is only 100 km to the north.

Nyköping enjoys an oceanic climate due to its location on the southeastern coastline. Summer highs range from 20 to 25°C, while winter lows can drop to -4°C. It is fairly dry year round with annual precipitation totalling around 60 cm. Due to the city's latitude, the sun stays up for as much as 18 hours a day during June, and in December there are only about six hours of sunlight per day.
Getting There & Around
Nyköping is only 100 km from Stockholm, which has the nearest airport. You can take a Swebus Express coach or train to town from Stockholm and many other cities in Sweden or Denmark. If you prefer driving, you can take the E4 highway.
You can get around town easily on foot since the castle, shops and bus station are all close to the centre.
