The medieval city of Norrkoping is nicknamed “The Manchester of Sweden” because of its historical role in the paper and textile industries. Those industries were powered by the Motala river, which runs through the city. Visit the Himmelstalundsvägen to see ancient rock carvings that date to the Nordic Bronze Age, or explore the Industrial Landscape to get an understanding of what shaped modern day Norrkoping.
