Next summer I will be in Stockholm for 6 days , during one of these days I want to enjoy some city which is no more than 2-3 hours by train from Stockholm. Nice cities to visit? and what to see? I had thought Uppsala, Falun or ?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

  • My favorite places outside Stockholm that are daytrip-worthy are Norrköping and Uppsala. I see those are mentioned already, so I'll only leave a comment. Enjoy! – downhand Apr 29 '15 at 11:16
  • your response is right! For nice I think the city where I can discover the power of the nature... the swedish ecosystem.. but also a modern city! – francesco Apr 29 '15 at 13:58

I think that this question will be closed as primary-opinion based, but still want to add that the best way to investigate a country is avoiding the trourist traps and select not first option you can find.

I suggest you the Eskilstuna city, there are a lot of museums there, zoo and park recreation zone you can walk in, and it is situated not very far from Stockholm: SJ (the largest train operator in Sweden) site is giving travel time near the one hour from Stockholm.

Yes - Eskilstuna is a nice option. The obvious ones near Stockholm (that some may consider tourist traps) are:

  • Vaxholm (reachable by bus or boat)
  • Mariefred (with the interesting Gripsholms Castle)
  • Sigtuna (old city with several medieval church ruins)

Other options are:

  • Uppsala (with a cathedral and old royal burial grounds)
  • Strängnäs (nice old small city centre next to Mälaren with old church)
  • Norrköping (if you like old industrial areas this is a must)
  • Trosa (small coastal - not reachable by train though)
  • Arboga (small and cozy by a canal)
  • Can you add some links for time tables and sightseeing for each city? – VMAtm Apr 29 '15 at 12:05
  • Yes! Will do when I have some more time. – froderik Apr 30 '15 at 20:35
