Weekend Trip – Vadstena

Posted in: General on 28 January, 2020 by Sebastian

The beautiful lake-side town of Vadstena is a must visit for anyone studying or living in Linköping. Only 45 minutes (by car) from Linköping is the centuries old town, famous for its almost 500 year old castle built by King Gustav I and the Vadstena Abbey which is even older. But the town has much more to offer than its history, especially in the summer time. The lake in which Vadstena is situated next to is Sjön Vättern which is the second biggest lake in Sweden. The town is usually buzzing in June and July – there are several bars where you can sit outside enjoy a beer and soak up the many hours of sun.

I have visited Vadstena on several occasions and I think the best way to highlight the beauty of it is through photos. Below are some pictures taken in both the summer and winter months.

It is accessible by public transport, from Linköping Rescentrum you can catch a train to Motala and then from Motala, a bus to Vadstena. It will take about an hour and 15 minutes roughly, to reach Vadstena. You can buy a 2-hour youth ticket for 50kr.
