Rent a car in Uppsala with Europcar

One of Sweden’s oldest cities and liveliest university towns, Uppsala attracts visitors from all corners of the globe. With its laid-back cultural vibe, it’s a great place to start your trip. Uppsala’s charm lies in its unique mixture of an exciting history, nonchalant cafes and bars, and its astounding archeological site. Head to the imposing gothic cathedral of Uppsala Scandinavia’s largest church where some members of the Royal family have been buried. The cathedral dominates Uppsala’s skyline, so you can’t miss it! Another landmark of Uppsala is Uppsala Slott. Built in the 1550s, burnt down in 1702 and rebuilt in 1757, the castle has been the scene of numerous enthronements and abdications. A 5 km-drive west will lead you to Gamla Uppsala, one of Sweden most important burial sites where you’ll find pre-Viking and prehistorical mounds.

Discover Uppsala and the surrounding area by car

Think almighty river, salmon fishing and golf courses… Yes, this is Älvkarleby, about 90 km north of Uppsala! If you need to relax, make your way down to Lake Mälaren, Sweden’s third largest take to taste its refreshing waters! And, of course, there is Stockholm, the ‘Venice of the North’, about 70 km south of Uppsala. Enjoy the capital’s elegance, creativity and style! Start with Stockholm’s old town and its great waterfront views before visiting the Stockholm’s Royal Palace. Don’t forget to stop for a ‘fika’ the Swedish coffee break! Swedes absolutely love their coffee! Another great day trip is the 1000-year-old city of Sigtuna, one of Sweden’s quaintest villages!


Visby is a much-coveted sunny haunt on the western coast of Gotland island! The ‘City of Roses’ is an idyllic spot for party lovers, families holidays and a good old chill-out. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1995, Visby is the best preserved medieval city in whole Scandinavia. Stroll among the city’s cobbled streets, explore its beautiful Gothic churches and dive into the pristine waters of the Baltic sea before going for a drive throughout the island! From Uppsala, drive south for about 130 km to Nynäshamn, where you can take your car on a 3-hour ferry! Are you ready for the ride?
