Travel Tips for Norrköping
On the Södra Promenaden (the Southern Avenue) lies 'Halvars Glass', an icecream shop that has become an institution in Norrköping. If a local is going to go buy icecream he goes to Halvars (which is why the lines can be very long on a sunny day). Halvars has existed since the 1930's, in the beginning they manufacture dtheir own icecream (sadly not anymore).
Halvars Glass is mentioned in the song "Jag går på promenaden" by the famous swedish singer Ulf Lundell.
Grabbhalvan, a 5 kilometer running competition (or trotting in most cases) for "real" men through the streets of Norrköping. It's an annual competition in may and has become an annual festival with many companies participating.
Everyone who finishes receives a survival kit with an inscribed beer glass and other essentials. My favourites are the ones running the entire race with a beer can in their hand =)
A special price is the "case-price", there's an empty case of beer after 3 kilometers, the person who brings it over the finish line get a special price. A real "grabbhalva" should wear a net shirt and 3 days stubble and preferable a beer belly.
Laser shooting game indoor. This sport is very fysicly demanding so make sure that you bring extra clothes to change after the game.

"Industrial area in Norrköping"
Still in 20th century Norrköping was city of industry, including textile manufacturers. However in 1959 and later more of them had been closed due to competition from countries abroad with lower wages. So today Norrköping isn't city of industry but at the same time old industrial buildings aren't destroyed but implemented reorientation and many of them now are sightseeing objects.
