  • A TOWN OF MANY CHURCHES

    There are many churches in Nyköping, but we only went to see Lid Church. Had the weather been better we would have stopped to see more of them. There are many art treasures from the Middle Ages in Lid despite the fact that the church was only an annexe to Ripsa and furthermore lacked a noble family in the parish during this time.

  • NK-villan at the river.

    I enjoyed their coffee and a smaller cake after a long walk in the cold this winter 2010. I t was quite cold and slippery so it was really nice to get inside in NK-Villan. A good thing for me that it was not many customers and visitors at all. Probably because it was so slippery outside. I never tried their pies, but if you plan to go there and...

  • Restaurant, Casino, Nightclub

    You must be over 23 to get in here, which means that it´s a more serious place. They have good food, good music, nice bartenders and good guards to keep order. The visitors are usually nice and you´re having a terrific time here! I like most of the dishes.

  • Skavsta Tourist Office at the airport.

    Directly when you leave the customs you will find the tourist office, but I am not sure what time they have stuff working there.
