Welcome to Knivsta



Knivsta is a young and expanding municipality with a pioneering spirit and a strong sense of identity. Knivsta is also an old railway town in a cultural region that was once the centre of the kingdom of Sweden.

Knivsta is favourably located along a main railway line and Highway E4. With frequent train services, it takes only half an hour to reach Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and ten minutes to Uppsala, one of Sweden’s oldest and most famous university cities. A major international airport, Arlanda, is only 7 minutes away.

Knivsta has attractive residential districts and good municipal services, and lies in the most beautiful countryside.

Three universities and a large number of university colleges are within commuting distance.

A stimulating environment 

Thanks to close cooperation between the local authorities, business life and voluntary organisations, and thanks to its enthusiastic inhabitants, the municipality has built up a stimulating environment to live and work in.

Knivsta has a population of around 18 500.
