This is a hugely popular destination for Swedes of all ages in the summer months. The Polferries terminal also offer regular routes to Gdansk in Poland. Several cruise ships on tours in the Baltic Sea also stay in the harbor, because they are too large to go into Stockholm.
During the summer months, the harbor is packed with boats of all sizes, and bustles with both visitors and locals. There are a number of eateries and boutiques with locally made produce. The main town is mainly modern and the buildings uninteresting generally.
There will be a cottage open with staff from the tourist information office at the dock and they can provide tourist information and maps on how to walk to the train station. It will take about 10-20 minutes to walk to the train station.
During the morning and afternoon there will be a shuttle bus (also functioning as a hop-on hop-off bus). The tickets for this bus can be bought by the bus or at the cottage. Shuttle = SEK 40, Hop on/off = SEK 100.
