The cathedral and University City of Linköping stands 12 miles southwest of the Swedish capital Stockholm. Linköping has a long history but today is a centre for high-tech and software industries. Visitors with a hire car from Linköping can explore popular sites around the city, like the old locks on the Göta and Kinda canals where period steamships still make their way through the leafy countryside. One of the tourist highlights of the area is the Air Force Museum, a collection of aircraft and more than 25, objects about flying. The surroundings are typical gentle southern Swedish countryside between scenic waterways including historic canals, Lake Roxen and the winding Stångån River.
The Cathedrals three steeples dominate the city's skyline. Linköping's 'Domkyrka' is its tallest building and worth visiting to see the museum inside. If you hire a car in Linköping you can visit the old and new parts of the city. The old quarter includes the castle remains and preserved streets like Hunnebergsgatan that are perfect for wandering, while the new Linköping features modern shopping malls like Tomby. Discover one of Sweden's oldest museums, the Östergötlands Museum, which is full of wonderful old art, while the modern main square is home to the acclaimed Konstallen Passagen, a contemporary art gallery.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
