The charming community of Lindsborg is located just minutes off the busy crossroads of Interstates 70 and 135.

Unique shops and restaurants, museums, art galleries and working studios, cultural and ethnic events, as well as great places to stay and lots of friendly people await you in Lindsborg. Valkommen.
