Living in Linköping

Linköping, in southern Sweden, is a city of roughly 140,000 people with the rather ambitious motto, "The City Where Ideas Become Reality". Whether or not this is an overly audacious self-description, expats living in Linköping will certainly find themselves in a city rich in ideas and an entrepreneurial attitude. It's a beautiful city with an easily navigable, traditional center and a friendly, dynamic buzz. The city's attractions include the Linköping Cathedral, the spire of which is the tallest point in Linköping, and the City Hall, the entrance of which is boldly engraved with the words "Fear of the Lord is the beginning of all learning" in Latin. As an expat living in Linköping you get the best of a vibrant working environment, with a strong high-end manufacturing and intellectual economy, alongside a compact and culturally rich community. The city's festivals, University and even a Linköping Symphony Orchestra all contribute to this charming – and ambitious – city's lively cultural life.

Moving to Linköping

Expats moving to Linköping can arrive by road, the very impressive Swedish railway system or by flying into the Linköping City Airport. This airport is small but served by international flights from Amsterdam and, as of March 2014, Copenhagen. As an expatriate moving to Linköping, you may wish to find out more about life in Linköping and expatriation in general before setting off and the InterNations website is a great source of information. In our online Expat Magazine we for example cover various topics relevant to expatriation such as cross-cultural communication, family and relationships and so on, as well as having content written by other InterNations members. You may also like to use the InterNations discussion groups, forums and private communications to get information on the city from expats living in Linköping. All of this should help you settle into the city more quickly and comfortably on arrival.

Working in Linköping

The city's attractive blend of busy cultural life and a small-scale, comfortable feel makes it an ideal place to be based in. One of the largest employers is the Saab defense company, which builds fighter jets and other high end products in the city. As an expat working in Linköping, you will find that the economy broadly rests heavily on high-end, high value manufacturing and information technology industries, further adding to the local sense of dynamism. You will more than likely find yourself settling in quickly to the city's buzzing economic and cultural life – and it is an easy task to find other expatriates in Linköping. The InterNations forums, discussion groups and private messages are again a good way of doing this and expats often organize meet-ups, network and socialize in this way. In a compact city like Linköping, you shouldn't have much difficulty in finding other global minds before long.

    The best thing about InterNations? Definitely the offline get-together. Meeting other expats in real life helps a lot.
