Borlänge Things to Do

  • Rommehed

    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...

  • Stora Tuna Church

    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...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    In Borlänge you can get more information from the tourist office. They will be really happy to help you. They have knowledge about their own city Borlänge and also the region called Dalarna. When you get here you also get free information about most tourist attractions and also a free map over Dalarna. That can be very good if you travel by car or motorcycle. You will find the tourist office on Sveagatan 1.

Borlänge Off The Beaten Path

    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.

    Ik Brage is a football club and they dont play 2014 in the highest League called Allsvenskan any more. But they have played there many years ago. It is now Days a team which plays in the lower top divisions and the information I have is that they want to get back to the highest League and play with the best teams, but this way is very long for the moment.

    Brage plays in green and White colours.

    Equipment: When you visit the games you dont need any sport Equipment.
