Linköping & Göta Canal


After Swedish breakfast in Opphem, we were treated by Lisse and Roger to a tour of Linköping (pronounced Linchirping), their home town. We saw a modern housing development, the beautiful park and river, the old city centre, had delicious lunch at Babette’s and visited the cathedral.

We then went to the Carl Johan staircase, a series of locks on the Göta Canal, near Linköping, that lower boats into or raise them up from Lake Roxen. It is impressive to see this in action.

We have enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of our hosts – great conversation, beautiful meals, stunning location, memories of time spent together in Adelaide and valuable advice about the next stage of our trip. Thanks Lisse and Roger!
