  • Was there at the Christmas market and has even been there in summer. Lovely setting with many fine buildings, dining, activities, etc.

  • Although many of the buildings are moved from around the region feels genuine and natural area. Good insight into how life could be sooner. Of course, there are also some stores but it is chosen with care and contribute to the attractive environment. Similarly, the restaurants and cafes on the place. To Cloetta has a store usually appreciated by godissugna.

  • Beautiful to visit in family. You should go early to take advantage of La Luz solar until 3 in the afternoon. There is music, food, Christmas carols, merchandise for sale and much movement. I would recommend a place closed apart from coffee as there is for power options of a snack or meal extra in another warm. During the mornings it is not difficult to find a santa with a group of children from local schools, dancing and singing around the Central magnificent of the tree

  • Old heritage. For me, interesting part was knowing some history and visiting inside of one of the buildings with guide which contained some historical stuff. Didn't amazed me much, may be the reason is I have seen more interesting places than this. Some of my friends liked it very a lot.
  • Part of the old city of Linkoping was moved in its entirety to a hill close by and converted in a small open air museum with cobbled streets and actors bringing the past to life. Very nicely done with a historic bank and policestation but also and old fashioned candy store, a store that sells handmade soap and body care products and a children's book store. Entry is completely free. Fun for kids
  • I live just next to Old Linköping Open Air museum and I never grow tired of it. The tiny red houses still inhabited by usual people, the museums, the small souvenir shops and cafés, the 1930ies atmosphere preserved through consistent use of plants, the forest beyond... Definitely worth a visit!
  • A direct jump into swedish history, very well preserved old city and amazingly used to create a perfect atmosphere for one day. Staff is veey kind and Welcoming.
  • Cute houses & calm & friendly staff at the little shop. The houses in Linköpings old town are authentic, & had been moved from different locations in the city. Good for families, visitors, strollers & everyone else really.
