Söderköping municipality lies on the coast of Östergötland and is just a short commuting distance to the university towns of Norrköping and Linköping. Half of the residents live in this idyllic town with strong roots in the Middle Ages. The other half lives in the surrounding countryside where there are many smaller urban settlements. The Göta canal flows through Söderköping and in summer time the canal docks are resplendent with restaurants, shops and Sweden’s largest glass restaurant, ”Smultronstället”. St Anna archipelago, one of Sweden's most beautiful stretches of coast with numerous islands, flourishes with many thousands of visitors and holidaymakers in the summer months. Several hundred live in the area the whole year round, many own small businesses serving the tourist and handicraft industries. Security, openness and consideration characterise our municipality. Welcome to our world!
