Driving Copenhagen to Stockholm

We will be driving from Copenhagen to Stockholm during the week late May. Is it easy to just drive straight thru on the major highway (mapquest says 6 hours) or is there something or somewhere we might want to stay for a night along the way. We will have already stayed in Gothenburg earlier in the week. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

It is very easy to drive straight through, barely any traffic once out of Copenhagen until the suburbs of Stockholm. That said, Kalmar makes a nice stop if you want to avoid the interstate and go up the coast. A castle, good local museum and easy access to the glass factories recommend it.

If you want to stick to the interstate, somewhere along Lake Vattern, between Granna and Odeshog, would be scenic and central -- Granna is a nice tourist town with many hotels and a shopping street, peppermint candy is made there.

The drive between Copenhagen and Stockholm take probably around 8-9 hours I would think. It is a pretty easy drive with nice and scenic views on parts of the way. It is very easy to do this in a day, without a overnight stop along the way, but that depends of what you want this trip to be ofcourse.

Have a nice trip and a safe drive to Stockholm!

Cph - Stockholm is 6 hours door to door if you don't stop every half hour for toilet breaks...
