Re: Cheap food shops, that using by locals in Uppsala?

From the top of my head I can think of buying food at the supermarkets Ica, Hemköp or Coop. They all have an area where you can buy ready-to-eat salads and sandwiches. If you're taking the food back to your accommodations and you have an access to a microwave oven, they also sell some prepared food that requires heat (in my opinion!). This tip applies also to Stockholm.

I know you say cafés and restaurants are expensive for your budget but I can highly recommend Cupido and Jalla. Cupido has a take away area with wok dishes and salads and they're sold by the kilo (if my memory doesn't fail me). Jalla is a kebab place. Both are popular among students who don't have too much money but like eating good and healthy. Info in my Uppsala page.

Travel Tips for Uppsala

Welcome to Uppland

by Pakistaniguy

Uppsala is a small medieval age town at around 1 hours drive from Stockholm City. It is famous for it's Stone Age ruins and having Scandanavia's Oldest University. Walking through the old town and seeing the building.

Buildings of Uppsala

by Pakistaniguy

I loved this building and it's colours. When i went near then i got to know that it is pretty build one. but in the whole city you will find buildings which are very different from others and typically swedish in style and architecture. To take the photo of this building while it was raining heavily.

Student Nations

by Forsberg21

As Uppsala is a university town, there are certain university quirks one must acknowledge while visiting or living in Uppsala. One of the most significant things is probably the student nations.

The student nations are like big clubs for everyone; think Greek system except inclusive or all students and much, much more fun. There are 16 nations, each named after a region in Sweden, and each one has its own character and offerings ranging from club nights and pubs and choirs and sport clubs.

The reason nations are important for the public to remember is because 1) nations have some services for the public, and 2) what happens at nations can affect areas surrounding the nations. Some nations rent out their space at somewhat reasonable prices, but prices aimed at not only paying for the service but helping fund the nation's total operations. Organizations who rent the nation rooms do so with thoughts in mind that they are helping the nation quite a bit. Also, during club nights (specifically Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) and gasque nights (typically Saturdays), there tend to be a lot of student roaming the streets and taking taxis back to primarily student areas like Studentvägen and Flogsta.

Packing List

by Maline

Again - if you are a student, or have some kind of student ID, bring it, if you plan to stay for at least a few days. You can then get a guest ID to get into the student clubs, which are, after all, the best places to go dancing or drinking and socialising, and not the least, much cheaper than other restaurants/nightclubs!

Lövstabruk ironworks village

by t_cims

There has been an ironworks here ever since the 16th century. In the early 17th century, a bar iron ironworks was founded, of which Louis de Geer became the sole owner in 1643. After the Russian ravages in 1719, the town was built up again. The Leufsta village church, with its Caroline Baroque style and famous Cahman organ, stood completed in the 1720s. Manorhouse, village environment, malthouse, and carriage collection on view with guide. Art exhibits, concerts, and children's activities in the summer or through booking. A nature and industry path begins at the former granary, along which there is information (in Swedish) about animals, nature, and industrial history.

Price/admission incl. VAT (when required): SEK 50 includes all village activities and return visits throughout the season

Road map: From Uppsala, take Road 290 about 45 km to the north. Pass through Österbybruk and turn left after about 6 km. Continue north about 12 km to Road 76. Follow signs into Lövstabruk. The manorhouse is centrally situated in the village

Bus number: Upplands Lokaltrafik no. 832
