3 Cities + 2

Explore the cosmopolitan cities of Malmö (+ Copenhagen), Gothenburg and Stockholm (+ Uppsala) on our most popular rail holiday.

Overview

3 cities + 2 gives you so much more than just three city breaks in one! This is the best way to experience Sweden’s three largest cities, Malmö, Gothenburg and Stockholm. You also have the option of spending a day in neighbouring Copenhagen whilst in Malmö, and a day in the historic city of Uppsala during your time in Stockholm. This is a tour offering you a cultural, diverse and cosmopolitan experience you will not find outside Sweden.

Malmö
A visit to Lilla Torget and Saluhallen. The award-winning ecological housing development area of the Western Harbour is also a must do, with sandy beaches and a long promenade, restaurants and cosy cafes, complemented by a stunning view across the sea towards Copenhagen.

Gothenburg
A city cruise on the Paddan boat tours. There is a wide variety of museums, attractions, activities and sightseeing tours to keep people of all ages and interests occupied. Gothenburg plays host to Scandinavia's largest amusement park at Liseberg, or if a leisurely scene is more to your taste, take a casual stroll around Haga for a taste of local life. 

Stockholm
A walk through Gamla Stan, a boat trip through the ever impressive archipelago, or a visit to the world famous Vasa Museum; Stockholm has it all. Explore Stockholm life on the islands of Södermalm, or take a trip to the islands of Sandhamn or Grindö. Stockholm is also renowned for its excellent shopping and NK is Sweden’s equivalent to London’s Harrods.

Hotel Royal - Gothenburg

A small and personal hotel, with just 77 rooms, in the heart of Gothenburg that is bursting with character in an Art Nouveau style. The building dates from 1852 and now houses recently renovated individually decorated rooms across 4 floors.

During the afternoon and early evening you will always find complimentary tea, coffee and cake (known locally as afternoon ‘fika’). Your stay in Sweden is not complete without ‘fika’! Gothenburg Central Station is just 350m away and the shops, bars and restaurants are even closer.

NOFO Hotel - Stockholm

An excellent small and personal award winning hotel located in a listed building from 1780 and on the fashionable island of Södermalm. This is where the locals live. Just 10 mins walk from the centrally located Gamla Stan (Old Town) and 2 mins from the nearest underground station at Medborgarplatsen.

Folkungagatan is a street with a laid back atmosphere on Södermalm. This has been the focal point for artisan, cool and creative design, shops and music. Split into 2 areas, SOFO (south of Folkungagatan) and NOFO (north of Folkungagatan) this is a great location from which to experience the real Stockholm.

We recommend an upgrade to Superior Rooms where possible.

Activities & Excursions

Gothenburg Excursions

Gothenburg is a welcoming city and Sweden's biggest port and Sweden's second city. It is also the gateway to the Bohuslän Archipelago. Local recommendations include numerous excellent restaurants, a coffee in a cosy cafe in Haga and a boat trip on the Göta River. Liseberg, Scandinavia's largest amusement park and home to an excellent Christmas market, is just a stone's throw away from the city centre.

Gothenburg Tourism website - the Gothenburg Tourist card offers great value for money.

Malmö Excursions

Malmö, Copenhagen and the Öresund region offer huge potential to explore. Due to varied tastes, and season differences we have found that giving you the option to choose your own activities, excursions and visits locally depending on the time of year, weather and your individual tastes gives you a flexible holiday you will enjoy.

We do recommend the cathedral city of Lund, the Western Harbour and a trip to Copenhagen. During the summer Ystad is also a popular beach destination. Malmö Tourism is a good place to start.

Stockholm Suggestions

We don't have any set activities here as there is such a variety of activities and excursions that appeal to a range of tastes. Recommendations include a boat trip through the archipelago, a visit to the Vasa Museum and a walk around Gamla Stan (The Old Town).

We suggest you visit the Stockholm Tourism website.
