Southern Sweden by Train

5 Days / 5 locations in Sweden

Visit the 3 largest cities of Sweden by train. A great alternative to driving!


Day 1     Stockholm

Arrival by flight on own. Transfer from Stockholm Airport Arlanda to the hotel on own.

Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands,connected by 57 bridges. The beautiful buildings, the green parks, the fresh air and the proximity to the water are distinctive traits of this city. With 750 years of history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world class museums and

attractions. We recommend a canal cruise or a visit to the Vasa Museum (entrances not included). The impressive warship Vasa sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 but was salvaged 333 years later in 1961. She has since been restored and can now be

seen with her complete rigging at the Vasa Museum. Remember also to visit the famous old town, Gamla Stan, or one of the many other museums in Stockholm.

Day 2     Stockholm - Gothenburg
Meals: Breakfast

Breakfast at the hotel. In the morning, leave Stockholm by train (2nd class - duration approximately 3 hours) through the pleasant countryside of Southern Sweden towards Gothenburg, the second largest city of Sweden. Gothenburg offers a variety of attractions: the greatest amusement park in Scandinavia, Liseberg, a boat cruise to

the 17th century New Älvsborg Fortress, the floating maritime experience centre Maritiman with an armada of 19 museum vessels and an opportunity to see and learn about U-boats, destroyers, mine-layers and fireboats. Accommodation at 3 star+ class hotel in Gothenburg, centrally located

Day 3     Gothenburg - Malmo
Meals: Breakfast

Breakfast at the hotel. Continue your tour south along the West Swedish coast line by train (2nd class – duration approximately 3 hours). Arrival in Malmö, a charming city and the biggest city in the Skåne area. In recent years, Malmö has developed into an exciting city with focus on cultural offerings, innovative architecture and a strong organic social character. Malmö was certified as Sweden’s first Fair Trade City in 2006 and this has spurred the city’s organic and fair trade offerings ever since. In Malmö it’s easy to shop with a clear conscience and to enjoy ethically produced food and drink. We recommend a visit to the Malmöhus Castle (entrance not included) which has been housing museum collections since 1926. Also remember to just enjoy the atmosphere of this historic city.

Day 4     Malmo - Ystad - Malmo
Meals: Breakfast

Breakfast at the hotel. Today, you will enjoy a full day tour to Ystad. Take the train (2nd class – duration approximately 50 minutes) from Malmö to Ystad. Only a few cities in Scandinavia and Europe boast such a complete and ‘living’ picture of bygone days as Ystad. Many of the 300 half-timbered houses and other buildings are filled with restaurants and shops and the picturesque corners are alive with surprises and bargains. Best-selling author Henning Mankell has put the city of Ystad, also called Wallander’s Ystad”, on the world map with his detective stories about Police Superintendent Kurt Wallander, a bachelor who grapples with murder investigations and difficult criminal cases in Ystad and its surroundings. The popular books have

been adapted for the screen, and you can now go on a guided tour in an old veteran fire engine (not included) around Ystad and listen to stories about the films and the books. In the afternoon, take the train back to Malmö.
