Best places to visit in Sweden

  • Stockholm: The capital of Sweden, which is built on an archipelago of islands, is a combination of outdoor activities, places of historical interest and art and culture. Take time to visit museums such as The Vasa Museum or The Modern Museum. Catch a ferry across to one of the islands or take some time to explore the culinary scene whether dining at casual restaurants or Michelin starred ones.  
  • Gävle: Just a two-hour drive from Stockholm, this city is located in the county of Gästrikland on the east coast of Sweden. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town with its pastel houses that were built in the 18th century. Once you have seen the town, head out into the Boulognerskogen – a park that has paths winding through the forests and a river running through it.   
  • Helsingborg: A city with a beautiful waterfront and a vibrant arts and culture scene, Helsingborg also has some impressive architecture that takes you back to various periods in the city’s history. Visit Dunkers Kulturhus – an arts centre and museum or take a stroll through the old town to see the 14th-century Kärnan Tower and St Mary’s Church which dates back even further to the 12th century.  

Summer in 2021 in Sweden

Summer is a great time to visit Sweden, not only for the famous Midsummer festivities that take place throughout the country but also because the days are long, the sun shines and the cities are vibrant and bustling with activity. If you want a beach holiday, look at car hire in Sweden so you can drive to the south where you’ll have your pick of beaches in Skåne on the Baltic Sea. For hiking and midnight sun hire an SUV and drive up north, immersing yourself in the natural beauty of Sweden.

They were friendly. Everything was fine, they give me a bonus (I rented a car class and they give me an upgrade to a SUV, modern, hybrid, what can I say?). Very helpful and receptive at my needs. I’ll recommend.

Great service.

We had accidentally booked at a different office, but they managed to help us out anyways and solve the problem. Fantastic staff and I will definitely go again.

Vehicle is in amazing condition too.

Sixt is one of the most convenient Car rentals in Sweden. Easy pickup and easy drop of. A huge selection of cars to choose from.

Niklāvs P.

Was renting a car for a weekend travels nearby Stockholm. As usual, I book something from entry level class rental cars, so that price is not to high. My arrival was quite late at evening, but all went fine and someone was still at rental, even at 22.00 to 23.00 o'clock. Also, this time Sixt rental gave a level up higher car, than in my original booking (this might be due to theire computer system issues that weekend, since all things had to be done only on paper).

All togather, had a really positive first experiance with Sixt rental Sweden.

Thnks for great weekend, cheers :)

Many choices with very good cars

Aariz R.

We have been renting cars from here since the last 6 years and every time we have a great experience with their cars. Their entire fleet has new cars, sometimes I got even brand new (just 300 kms driven)


The cars are neat and tidy, the pick and drop process is seamless


I wish we had a choice of cars though. You can choose a segment of cars to rent but you cannot particularly choose which car you want to rent.

Erik de R.

It is fine, just a regular place nothing special.

All the rental companys in one building.

Piotr B.

I've rented twice in this station during the last year.

The first time - they gave us the exact model we booked - BMW 1. It was all OK, no problems during pick-up nor return.

The second time - we got a bit smaller car than we expected but we haven''t complained. It was Mercedes GLC hybrid, a great car for winter driving conditions.

All in all - the service was great. We topped up AdBlue (without prior notice) and got refunded after the return when we showed the receipt.

They are answering the phone (I wanted to return the car late at night the day before). 5/5

Janet D.

Rented cars a couple of times. We were spoilt for choice with a wide range of cars available in good condition. The staff were flexible to accomodate timings and choice of pickup/drop spots. They upgraded our car without additional fee even. Would recommend.

Maria K.

FANTASTIC! I arrived too late and the office had just closed. The employee Ali offered to drive me to my hotel although his shift had already ended. How kind is that? Thanks so much!
