  • I have visited the old Linköping twice and think it is wonderful. Love to walk around and look at all the fine old houses, as well as look into the small shops. Always ends with a visit to Cloetta store and for some reason it will not empty handed. Recommend this highly.

  • Old Linköping is as Skansen, but still not. Or little as Wadköping, Örebro, but still not. I have been here several times and always discover something new. A place to visit several times. Nice shops, repair shops and cafes. During the summer various activities. Near Wax with a small railway museum mm

  • Like the Skansen in Stockholm, with a large area with saved old houses from the landscape. Most will remember the old phone booth spm stands out on the square. There are all sorts of shopping and coffee with pastries.

  • 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.
