possible visit for 2009 NT-CUP

hey guys,

someone I know is going to be playing in the NT-cup

web page is here:
http://pekingpumas.se/nt-cup/nt-cup-in-english/

I can't read Swedish - trying to figure out where it is...

is this the correct place?

Himmelstalund
602 Norrköping Municipality, Sweden

also - thinking about visiting Sweden and looking for tips/suggestions... I am a little low on cash right now so any suggestions on good places to rent (or websites to look for rentals - such as an apartment/condo rental for approximately one week)

also would like some info on the transit situation or what would be the best way to get around... not sure what would be the best way to get there from the airport (presuming Stockholm would be where I would land). I ride motorbike and wondering if weather would still be suitable for motorcycle in late August/early September.

Any help would be appreciated! (motorcycle/apartment rentals, weather, tips on sightseeing, etc.)

Cheers from Canada.

Yes, that would be the right location.

The Swedish currency is kind of weak right now, so you might have more money then you think. I assume you plan on staying in Norrköping... so this would be a good place to start looking for someplace to live (and the website of course includes other useful information). http://www.upplev.norrkoping.se/Boka+boende__1033.html
Most of it should be in English. I think Norrköping City could be a good place to start your search.

If you land in Stockholm (Arlanda) I guess it would be easiest to go by train. http://www.sj.se/sj/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=10&l=en That site should have all the information you need. Remember that you would like to travel from Arlanda C (it will give you suggestions as you type it) and not from Stockholm when you search. You will still need a way to get to the arena (it's not really in downtown), but I guess there should be a bus.

As for the weather this time of the year.... it's hard to predict. It can be sunny and hot or it can be rain and quite low temperatures (by summer standard). You never really know until you get to that time of the year. Sometime the weather has been better in September then in July.

I just googled for stockholm+motorcyckle rentals, I have no idea if they are good or not.

It's in Stockholm.

This is a pretty good site I think to find hotels/motels and some overall tourist guide. If you didnt like Norrköping Citys own site Yabob had.

It shouldnt be a problem to ride a bike aug/sept. If you're unlucky it could get rainy, pretty windy (nothing extreme though) and wet, 'cause there is always a possibility of rain in Sweden. Temps can wary from 14 C to 24 C. Most likely around 19-20 C
