Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Although Sweden's roads are generally well-maintained and well-signposted caution must be taken when driving your rental car at night and during the long Winter months. It is not unusual for moose, deer and other wild animals to be on the road. Sweden has two main motorways, the E6 runs from Trelleborg to Oslo in Norway while the E4 stretches from Helsingborg to the Finnish border.

More tips for enjoying driving in Sweden:

  • Drive on the right in Sweden.
  • Kilometres are used for distances and speed limits.
  • Dipped headlights are required at all times.
  • From 1st December to 31st March Winter tyres must be fitted and snow chains are allowed. It is compulsory to have antifreeze in windscreen fluid and snow shovels must be carried.
  • A daily congestion charge of 20 SEK applies in the cities of Gothenburg and Stockholm while the bridges of Sundsvall and Motala have toll stations. Sundsvall is 15 SEK a day while Motala is 10 SEK a day.
  • Children under 1.35m in height need appropriate child seats and if children under 1.40 are in the front of a vehicle the passenger airbag must be disabled.
  • In the Swedish countryside and smaller towns parking is widely available and often free. In the major cities, parking is metered and may be harder to find in the peak Summer months. Roadside parking must be in the direction of traffic.
  • If you cause damage to rental vehicles by driving off paved surfaces you will be charged for any repairs.

Speed limits in Sweden

Speed limits in Sweden vary according to season and road conditions but are always clearly marked:

  • Residential areas: 30 to 70 km/h
  • National roads: 70 - 90 km/h
  • Motorways: 90 - 120 km/h

Traffic Infractions and on-the-spot fines:

Non-residents are required to pay any fines on-the-spot in cash. Speeding fines range from 1500 to 4000 SEK. In cases of drink driving foreign licences may be marked as not valid in Sweden.

Top 4 architectural sites

  • Moderna Museet
  • Icehotel Jukkasjarvi
  • Turning Torso, Malmo
  • Feskekorka, Gothenburg

Collections of contemporary art are housed in the Moderna Museet on the Stockholm island of Skeppsholmen. The Icehotel at Jukkasjarvi was the world's first hotel made entirely of ice and snow when it opened in 1989. Not surprisingly, it is rebuilt every Winter. The Turning Torso in Malmo is the tallest building in Scandinavia. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava this Neo-futuristic skyscraper was inspired by his own white marble sculpture, the Twisting Torso. Feskekorka literally translates as the fish church and this large Gothenburg market is the best place to sample some of Sweden's delicious seafood.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • Botanical Garden, Gothenburg
  • Wanas Sculpture Park
  • Sarek National Park, Jokkmokk
  • Hoga Kusten

Gothenburg's Botanical Garden displays an impressive 16,000 species of plants set in different habitats. In the Wanas Sculpture Park at Ostra Goinge art, history and nature all come together. The park also has a white medieval castle. The long-established Sarek National Park has everything outdoor enthusiasts can want along with six mountain peaks and over 100 glaciers. Magnificent glacial scenery is also a feature of the beautiful Hoga Kusten coastline.

Important Film locations

Two of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series of Swedish thrillers have been turned into films. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl who Played with Fire (2009) were both filmed in Sweden at locations such as Stockholm, Uppsala and Solleftea. In the Russian thriller Gorky Park (1983) Helsinki and Stockholm stood in for Moscow. The avant-garde staging of the drama Dogville (2003) was filmed entirely in a Trollhättan studio despite being set in Colorado, USA.

Henrik B.

I was pleasantly surprised renting a car from Sixt at Arlanda. When I arrived there was no line, so service was excellent. There was a slight issue with their system, but rather than having me wait I got an upgrade.


Return was also extremely easy with an attendant available as I pulled in. Definitively a good car rental experience.

Good service and nice cars!


We rented a car here, overall experience was good. Our booked model was not available, but what we were given was a good strong car. It was the second ride, so brand new basically. The experience to book and take car was good, the drop off was by ourselves. You cannot rent on weekends unless you go by noon on Saturday.
