Nyköping is a city in Södermanland.
Nyköping is located on the coast an hour south of Stockholm. There are roughly 35,000 people living in central Nyköping and close to 50,000 in the whole municipality. There are 23,400 households in the municipality, with 9,600 of these individual homes and 13,800 apartments. The small towns around Nyköping – Stigtomta, Nävekvarn, Jönåker, Tystberga, Stavsjö and Ålberga – all have their own character and advantages.
It’s easy to get to Nyköping and easy to continue on from here. The E4 motorway swings past just outside Nyköping, and planes from Stockholm Skavsta Airport takes you elsewhere in Europe quickly. Trains stop twenty-six times a day in Nyköping.
On the street Storgatan, stretching nearly one kilometre, are small designer boutiques and clothes shops alongside H&M and the grocery chain Ica. You can run across celebrities here like Filippa K, Philippe Starck and Kalles Kaviar.
During the summer, the harbour is alive with restaurants and handicraft shops along the embankment. Several shopping precincts are located at the southern and northern approaches to the city, which is practical for anyone going to the countryside or passing through by car.
