Katrineholm is closer than you think. Many large cities like Stockholm, Norrköping, Eskilstuna, Örebro, Nyköping and Västerås are just an hour away by road or rail. We have a third of Sweden’s population within a 100 kilometre radius.
More and more people are realizing the benefits of living in a smaller town. Being close to work and recreation offers a better quality of life. Living in Katrineholm and commuting to, for example, Stockholm is rapidly becoming a viable alternative. Skavsta Airport is just 45 minutes away and opens the door to worldwide destinations. The E4 is just a few kilometres from the municipal borders. The building of the eastern bypass is due to start in 2010.
The municipality has an excellent bus service, both in Katrineholm itself and in the rural areas. If you prefer driving then all car parking is free.
