Information about Norrkoping Sweden

Rating: 7,5/10 (100 votes)
The city of Norrkoping until a certain time did not develop in the field of tourism, remaining an industrial giant with a dozen factories and factories and residential quarters of workers. But in the last 30 years, with an increase in interest in the Scandinavian countries, hotels, museums and other cultural institutions began to appear here.

The main focus of Norrkoping's tourism is on excursions - many buildings from the Middle Ages and other eras have been preserved in the city, museums have been created, mainly dedicated to the local industry. In addition, tourist companies of the city offer the possibility of walking and cycling tours around the city and its outskirts.

The main street with the vast majority of Norrkoping museums is Mutala River Embankment. Along the riverbed, the first manufacturing factories of the city began to be built in the Middle Ages, which later grew into full-fledged factories. Now almost all of them have been converted into showrooms dedicated to the local industry.


For example, City Museum, which is the city's main museum, was once Norrkoping's largest weaving mill. Now all production has been moved away from residential areas, and historical machines and production materials are exhibited in the halls of the factory.

On an artificial island connected to the coast by two pedestrian bridges, there is a building of the Museum of Labor. The exposition of the museum is dedicated to specific people, giving all their strength for the development of the city. This institution is a kind of analogue of the Norrkoping History Museum.

Norrkoping also has its own Art Museum, which houses an exposition of contemporary Swedish artists, graphic artists, sculptors and photographers. Sometimes the museum hosts exhibitions and installations from world masters of our time.

One of the final visits can be a visit to the Town Hall of Norrkoping - this is one of the tallest buildings in the old part of the city with a height of 68 meters. There is an observation deck on the main tower of the Town Hall, which overlooks the old and modern quarters of the industrial city.
