  • Why they did they move these houses?

    This is a close up picture of the Cajsa Warg Hus. When you take a closer look like this you can see how crooked it is. I love that though, it looks so picturesque!When I visited Wadköping the thing that questioned me most was why they moved all these houses to this area. But moving houses is nothing new. Old timbered houses have been moved ever...

Örebro Restaurants

  • Wonderful and varied buffet at lunch...

    We got to the museum before midday and were planning to look for a restaurant in downtown to have lunch later, but we felt hungry before we finished seeing everything there was to see and we were lazy to walk all the way to downtown and back to the museum again. We then realized that they had a small dining room in the second floor of the cafeteria...

  • Pavlik_NL's Profile Photo

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By airplane the gateways to Sweden are Stockholm, Goteborg or Malmo. Coming by car or train from mainland Europe one needs a ferry. From Helsingborg to Helsingor there is a short connection (trains are driven onto it in total). From Kiel (Germany) a Stenaline-ferry is a pleasant connection to Goteborg if you go by car. The driver can find some rest on the boat.
    Trains are great for the longer distances. By car the whole country is open for you, though the further North, the worse the condition of inlandroads can be. Hiking around is ideal in this country of nature. Going from 'Hutan' to 'Hutan', blockhuts in the middel of nowhere that all hikers can use for free. Some even have stretcher-beds ready and a closet with some groceries. One expects that if you take something out, you put something back into the storage. Also by bike the country is open wide. However it is a shame that you are restricted to the asfalt.

Örebro What to Pack

  • Sunset and Sunrise

    The daylight hours (hours between sunrise and sunset) vary a lot between the winter and summer months. People may expect to see the midnight sun during the summer, because they are in Scandinavia. But this is not true for Örebro, because you are not far enough north in the country. In December you will only have 6 hours to enjoy the day. The sun...

    If you get the chance you should go camping. One of my favourite nights was when a friend of mine took me up to the near by hills and forrests for an outdoor bbq and berry picking. My one regret was that I didn't take my camera with me. Sitting on a cliff top above a still lake, surrounded by forrests with a crackling fire near by is my idea of a...

Örebro Sports & Outdoors

  • LIF handboll.

    Lindeskolans IF plays in the highest division in handball in Sweden, but they dont play the games in Lindesberg. But that will change from season 2020-2011, then they will play in Lindesberg sport stadium. So, if I was in Örebro and Lindeskolan plays a game, I would go and see them before they move away from Örebro.

    Well, when I walked around and took pictures in Örebro I met a very nice guy. He showed me around in the church and told me stories about it. I wish all people could be like that.
