Travel Tips for Västerås
A must see in the area of Västerås is Tidö Slott. The slott is not only a castle, it also houses a toy museum. Tidö Slott is on this same road from Rytterne to Västerås. When you drive on this road you will see signs to a sideroad that leads to Tidö Castle. Don't take the exit to Tidö-Lindö though! As this road brings you to the village on the other side of the water and not to Tidö Slott itself. The total distance from Västerås to Tidö Slott is around 14 kilometres.

The Stone-ships at Anundshög
This is me climbing up the burial-mound I mentioned in the previous tip. Behind me you can see two of the five stone-ships at Anundshög. The two stone-ships you see here are the biggest and most impressive ones.
The stone-ships are amazing in size and in way they are build. The stones are placed in a perfect symmetry around the major axis and it amazes me how they did that. The sides of the ships take the form of bow shaped arcs. The wider of the two ships is 50.8 meters long and 24.7 meters wide, which makes it exactly half as wide as it is long. From the top of the hill you have an excellent view over these two stone-ships.
Kyrkbacken, the old town
This is one of the little streets in an area called Kyrkbacken and my favourite area of Västerås. In this part of the city you can see the oldest buildings of Västerås. The timber houses date back to the 18th Century.
A small Swedish town....
I came to this small town exclusively to visit a very dear friend of mine; she's Mexican but lives here since a couple of years ago because this is where the love of her life lives as well.... I was able to spend a total of 10 days here between June & July 2007. So now I'm slowly posting my pics and tips...!!!
