Uppsala

Trip Planner Europe  /  Sweden  /  Uppsala County  /  Uppsala

Bike Town

Dominated by two major universities, Uppsala serves as Scandinavia's oldest center of higher education. Located just 70 km (40 mi) north of Stockholm, the city retains much of its small-town charm while offering a variety of big-city attractions including upscale shops, renowned museums, and a lively nightlife scene. The Ryris River separates Uppsala into two separate districts, each with its own distinct look and feel. The historical old town sits just to the west of the river, its skyline crowned by a medieval castle and cathedral--the largest church in Scandinavia. Be sure to explore the northern edge of the city, the site of Uppsala's original settlement, known for its network of ancient burial mounds. Uppsala is in Uppsala County. With our international travel planner, Sweden vacations can be built around trips to Uppsala and other destinations in Sweden.
