Travel Tips for Västerås

Lilla Rytterne Church

by sim1


The nice thing about this church ruin is that it is not out of use. During the summer there are 'open air' church services held here.

If you want to know more about Lilla Rytterne Church this might be an interesting website for you : http://www.werbeka.com/vasteras/kyrkruin.htm Unfortunately the website is only available in Swedish.

Respect for animals

by Laura_Mexico

I happened to run into this cute duck family while strolling the main square, not really close to the water (the river was a few blocks away).... I was a bit surprised to see them just lying here, among the bikes and the people walking by, but they didn't seem to be bothered or stressed at all..... I think this is due to the fact that nobody tried to bother or chase them, so I was nicely impressed by the respectful attitude that the people in Vasteras showed towards these nice, defenseless animals!

Route of the king

by sim1


But paying for the runic stone (see previous tip) is not all that Folkvid did. He also paid for the road to be built passing Anundshög and marked it with a row of monoliths. The road was to be used when the newly crowned king rode through his realm to receive the homage of his people. The monoliths are still there, and you can just imagine people travelling here in those times.

I took a picture of a drawing at the historic site of Anundshög. There are several interesting signs at Anundshög explaining its history, both in Swedish and in English. An excellent thing I think, hahaha, as my Swedish isn't so good yet.

Carl von Linné at Djäkneberget

by sim1


This boulder is in memory of Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), or Carl von Linné as he later was called. He is often called the Father of Taxonomy. He is famous for his system for naming, ranking, and classifying organisms which is still in wide use today. When you love gardening (like I do), you probably know about this naming system, and maybe that's why I liked seeing this boulder with his name in the park.
You can read his biography on this website :

Having a drink on the terrace

by sim1


By now your feet are probably very tired from walking around! Hahaha, but no problem, you can take a rest and have a drink in one of the many restaurants or like here on a terrace.
It's time for now to say goodbye to Västerås itself and have a look around in the surrounding area of this city. In my 'off the beaten path tips' you can read about the historical site 'Anundshög', an interesting burial mound, left by the Vikings. And in my general tips you can read all about the wonderful places to visit around the city of Västerås. So I hope you will follow me around on this trip, so I can show you much more of what the area has to offer.
