Picture taking from the train.
is soldertalje golf course any good? i will be working the for 6 months starting in april.
Re: golf course
There are several golf courses around Södertälje so I'm sure you will find a good one even if I cannot recommend a particular one, not playing golf myself. I know some people in Stockholm who do though, but they use various courses in the south of Stockholm, on the way to Södertälje rather than in it.
Travel Tips for Södertälje
The pretzel has become the symbol of Södertälje and you'll see pretzels of various sizes around town.
The women of Södertälje used to sell pretzels to passing travellers and the town became famous throughout Sweden and Scandinavia for this.
It's still an enduring symbol and you can still buy fresh pretzels but now the place is known more for being the home of a huge Scania factory than its doughy delights.
In the 19th century, a railroad was built connecting Södertälje with Stockholm and other towns in the area. As the trains would stop by on its way Stockholm, ladies from the town would start to sell specially baked pretzels. These ladies were very aggressive seller; however, the travelers enjoyed the pretzels. Soon, people as far away as in Finland knew Södertälje as the "pretzel town." Nowadays, there are still a few places where you can buy these pretzels (special recipe required), however, the symbol of the pretzel is very prominent. Among other things, one of the town’s major department stores is simply called "The Pretzel," and some sports teams have the symbol on their uniforms.
Tejanasueca helped me get my soccer fix while on vacation in Sweden. I was not disappointed. I saw Assyriska play Orebro on a beautiful night in a compact little stadium, which on one end looks out onto the tall trees of forest.
Sodertalje, which is about 45 minutes south of Stockholm. Assyriska play in the new Sodertalje Fotbollscenter right beside Scaniarinken. The stadium holds 6500. The stadium is new, has turf and the team attracts around 2000 per spectators per match.
They are one season removed from the Allsvenskan (Swedish top flight.)
To get to the stadium, take the Pendeltag tram line south to Sodertalje centrum station. There, take the bus labeled 'Scaniarinken'. The stadium is the final stop.
Entrance was 120 SEK, with a match program 20 SEK. Be warned, most of the program sellers are little kids and they don't speak English.
Thanks again to VT member Tejanasueca who was kind with her directions to the stadium and tips on what to do in Sodertalje.
Sports is a very important part of my hometown, we have several teams playing in their respective highest division (including hockey, football/soccer, and basketball). We also have a very proud tradition when it comes to producing good tennis players. The best example of this is of course Bjorn Borg, who won five Wibeldons in a row in the 70s. The son of one of his old training partners is now a shooting star on the tennis circuit. His name is Joachim "Pim-Pim" Johanson, and I believe he will be a big star in the near future (fun, since I went to school with his older brother!).
SSK- Södertälje's Hockey Team
Of all the teams in my hometown, this is my favorite. This is the team I remember following as a child, and the team I cheered on during its troubled years when I was a teenager. They really have not had much success the last 20years or so, but that does not mean that people in town does not love the team. During season, the ups and downs of the team is what everybody is talking about, and if there is a big game coming up, the 7000 tickets to the arena might sell out in a couple of hours.
