Sweden - Rail Tours and Traveller's Notes

Swedish law prohibits the retail selling of alcohol over 3.5% in volume. The only noticeable difference this makes to guests visiting Sweden on rail tours with Great Rail Journeys is that they have to visit a government controlled Systembolaget if they wish to buy alcohol for consumption off licensed premises.

If you are invited into someone's home on your tour of Sweden by train you should remove your footwear at the door. This is common practice across Sweden and it is rude to do otherwise.
