Travel Tips for Örebro
Helpful man in the church.
Well, when I walked around and took pictures in Örebro I met a very nice guy. He showed me around in the church and told me stories about it. I wish all people could be like that. I also got some left over candles from the church which I use now at home. It is a very good memory of my visit in Örebro. I would call him a local hero with no name. I am bad at names, so of course I forgot his name too. When he talked to me and showed me around in the church and gave me some left over candles.
Örebro SK on Behrns Arena.
Here Örebro SK plays their home games in football. They have one very good team and they play this year in the next highest division. They play in black and white colours. If you are here during the season, go and see them. Just your own equipment.
Have a visit to Dylta Bruk. ...
Have a visit to Dylta Bruk. On the photo you can see the lovely clock-tower built in 1714, the only thing that still remains of the old church. Close to the clock-tower (not on the photo) there are a mansion which is the main building, built in 1740, and rebuilt in 1840.
Dylta Bruk can be found North of Örebro.
This park the city took over 1971 and started to develop it have done a very good work. Because it won a competition 2004 and the price was, that it was the most beautiful park in Sweden that year and 2006 one of the fifth most beautiful parks in Europe. So then you understand that this is an obligatorical visit when you are in Örebro together with the castle.
In the park you find places for kids to play, a café , toilettes and many other places to be active, or just to sit down on a blanket and read a book, perhaps share a bottle of wine with your dearest...
Wadköping : The open air museum
When you are in Örebro you have to go to Wadköping. It's a great place to discover. It's called the open air museum, and it sometimes also called the 'old village'. I think these names may give the impression of a boring area with 'just' lots of old buildings. But Wadköping is so much more than that. This 'open air museum' is not just a museum, it's actually part of the city. It feels alive and is very picturesque.
During the period from May to August there are many kinds of arrangements: musical entertainment each Wednesday and Saturday, theatres and exhibitions of artistic handicraft etc.
Totally surprising to me is the entrance fee to Wadköping.... it's for free! You'll notice this more often when you are in Sweden that some sites have free entrance. Hahaha, I am totally not used to that, every crazy little thing you would like to see mostly has an entrance fee. But not so in Sweden!
