The idyllic town of Linköping lies an hour’s drive away from Stockholm Skavsta’s airport hub. Its old town, Gamla Linköping, is a tranquil oasis with beautiful old wooden buildings. Hilma Winblads Bed and Breakfast is one of them. The listed early 19th century house has been carefully renovated back to its former glory, to a modern standard with comfortable beds and bespoke furniture. The rooms at this quirky B&B are all different, named after charismatic local celebrities like Elsa, the nurse who helped World War II refugees, and Viola, the talk of the town who sold ‘snuff’ tobacco alongside cakes in the 1930s and drove a shiny American car.
