Borlänge Things to Do

    Rommehed

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Head means "heath" and here you have a 6 hectare nature reserve full of the typical flora of sandy areas. This was also the famous drilling place for the Dala regiment until 1908 so there are several unusually well kept army barracks from the 18th century and onwards. This huge field is also used for concerts and sporting events throughout the year.

    Stora Tuna Church

    by Sjalen Written Mar 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Originally built as a cathedral in the 15th century, which is why it is now very large for being a provincial church, something that happened when the Dalecarlia and Västerås dioceses merged into Västerås only. Apart from being a nice church, this is where you find Jussi Björling's grave.

    Ornässtugan

    This 16th century timber house is so famous it became a museum already 1758. The reason? King Gustav Vasa, one of our most famous national characters, hid here once when chased by the Danes. Legend has it that he escaped through the bog hole...! :))) If he hadn't escaped, Swedish history would have looked a lot different as he has given his name to all sorts of castle architecture and god knows what we would have to call our crisp bread, ski race and sunken ships without him!

    You get directly to Borlänge by train from for instance Stockholm in 2 1/2 hrs and with just a change in Hallsberg or Gävle, you can reach it from other parts of Sweden. There are several trains a day, and you can also easily catch a train to Falun and from there a local bus.

Borlänge Off The Beaten Path

  • Per Gynt's cave

    by MikaelPersson Updated Jun 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a small cave (impossible to go into) that the highwayman Per Gynte lived in during the 16th century when he was hiding from justice.
    Drive towards Leksand from Borlange and then turn right towards Amsberg and then towards Falun and you'll see the sign on the left.
    There's a stony path 1 km to walk to this place where you can sign the guestbook and look at the view.
