This is a story about three soldiers who deserted from the swedish army during the war in Europe. They stole some money from the army and started to built a house in this area. Then they became angry with each other and then I dont want to tell you the end of the story.
If you want to know more about this story or this part of Eskilstuna, you can call Husby-rekarne hembygdsförening (you see the telephone numbers below here).
Or you can call the tourist office in Eskilstuna 016 - 710 70 00.
Botvidstäppan is a vey nice place to visit. You can find a wall which is 850 meters with stones. Go and watch this and feel the old history in the air....
Favorite thing: I would love to do as this family does, row a boat in the lake in Bälgviken. It was such a nice time and they relaxed a lot. No cars around and no noises. Just peaceful.
