Köping is mentioned in 1257 at a bishops' meeting and has since been involved in both battles and fires. At the end of the 19th century, Köping's mechanical workshop was founded, which provided jobs for a few hundred. In 1866, the railway opened the landscape. In 1889, a fire broke out that destroyed large parts of the town. After the city fire, a stone town emerged that still characterizes parts of the city center together with post-war architecture. Many of the character buildings were designed by architects. You see the pharmacy house, the courthouse and the mechanical workshop. In the church park is Carl Mille's sculpture depicting Köping resident Carl Wilhelm Scheele, chemist and pharmacist. Köping has many beautiful houses. A visit to the city's patisserie is also a must.
