Being one of Sweden’s biggest open-air museums, Gamla Linköping is also the main tourist attraction in Östergötland with around 400,000 visitors per year. “People appreciate the genuine setting and glimpse of Swedish culture and history,” says museum director Tina Karlsson. “The old city blocks have so many interesting places to explore. For example, Solliden house and garden from the 1920s is fantastic, and well worth a visit.” Gamla Linköping is open throughout the year, with 20 separate museums telling the story of people’s everyday lives in the past.
