Uppsala Guide

Guide

Located to the north of Stockholm is the beautiful, historical and religious city of Uppsala. Its tranquil atmosphere is favoured over Stockholm, and it features a delightful river-cut centre, as well as an active student-geared nightlife. The best way to get around Uppsala and its outer countryside, which is definitely worth exploring, is with a rental car. Book cheap car hire in Uppsala with us in advance of travelling. Fill in your travel details in the form provided and we'll compare prices from dozens of top car rental companies in order to help find you the best deals online. Choose from a large selection of cars to help make your car hire experience a special one.

Explore Uppsala

The centrepiece of the medieval town is the 13th century Domkyrkan, Scandinavia's largest and greatest cathedral. The echoing interior is awesome, boasting a spectacular French Gothic ambulatory, sided by tiny chapels, one of which contains a lively set of restored 14th century wall paintings. The 15th century Uppsala University, with its imposing central hall, lies opposite the cathedral.

The university has several historic sections, including the excellent library, which is one of Scandinavia's largest. There is also a tidily preserved anatomical theatre. Additionally, the Uppsala University Museum is home to an extensive collection of portraits. The 16th century castle and its opulent State Apartments are nearby. Here, you can wander around the excavations and peruse the waxworks.

There's a wide range of good restaurants serving delicious fish dishes and traditional Swedish fare. Riverside cafés are popular during the summer and the student clubs (‘nations’), housed in mostly magnificent buildings, form a considerable part of the nightlife.

Stretching from Bergslagen's deep forests in the north down to the verdant coves of Lake Mälaren, the county of Vastmanland offers extremes such as primeval forests next to open landscapes, as well as mountainous forests close to wetlands teeming with a varied fauna. Stockholm, site of the Nobel Prize banquet, enjoys an excellent natural setting at the mouth of the lake and also has some fine buildings and parks.

Transport

By air
Stockholm Arlanda Airport is located a short 30km drive south of Uppsala. Buses and trains offer frequent transfers and are located outside the terminal. Car rentals however, are the most popular choice of transport for getting around Uppsala. Book cheap car hire in Uppsala in advance with us and arrange for collection from the airport. Be sure to fill in the appropriate pick-up and drop-off locations in the search form.

Sixt, Europcar, Avis, Budget and Hertz each operate from desks at the airport. Prices will be more expensive at the airport than if you purchase a hire car online. The number of cars are also limited, so if you leave buying car hire to the last minute you may not get one.

By car
The E4 motorway passes through Uppsala from the north to the south, and the east to west motorway, the E18, is not far to the south of the city.

By train
Commuter trains go to and from Stockholm every 30 minutes during the daytime, and there are also intercity connections to the north.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
