Need Help with Sweden Itinerary!

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

I'm heading to Denmark/Sweden for two weeks in the beginning of July. I will be spending about 5 days in Copenhagen and surrounding environs visiting distant relatives and then heading on own to Sweden.

My plan is to plan another 4/5 nights in Stockholm but I'm conflicted on how to spend the rest of my time.

Currently, I'm thinking of doing an itinerary where I would take the train from Copenhagen to Kalmar for two nights and then on to Stockholm and then take the train back down along Lake Vattern and maybe spend a night in Vadstena? Rottle?

And then train down to Lund or Malmo for a night? Or Ystad? Or is Ystad too far out of the way?

Do people feel strongly one way or another about these towns?

I was hoping to see Gothenburg but that just doesn't seem time-wise to be realistic . . .

For the time in Stockholm I'm definitely planning on doing a day trip out to the archipelago and another trip to see Birka and Mariefred. And would love to to see Uppsala as well.

-Hotel recommendations for Stockholm? Ideally looking for something in the $150/night range.

-Should I buy a Swedish Rail Pass in advance? Does that cover ferries?

I greatly appreciate whatever words of wisdom anyone cares to impart. Thank you so much in advance for your help!
