    If it rains.....

    by Dizzyhead Updated Jul 17, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Why dont you go to the library (Stadsbiblioteket) in Eskilstuna and borrow an umbrella????? They will help you with that. I have no idea what it costs, but probably nothing. I guess it can be worth it. perhaps you have to leave an identity card or something, when they lend you the umbrella.

    Gamla Teatern is an old house and they play theatre here in the summers and have concerts here. One problem is that this theatre is not good for handicaped people. Rådhustorget 6 is the address. They have played theater here between 1830 until 1850, and then they started again 1989. during the summer they also have concerts here, exhibitions and markets, especially one at Christmas.

    After work.

    by Dizzyhead Updated Feb 3, 2010
    I love happy hour.
    4 more images

    Many restaurants in Eskilstuna have something called After Work, and it means that they have happy hour on beer and usually some other drinks. And the best thing is that most places give you free food when you drink there. After work times are usually from 17.00 to 20.00. It can change depending on the place. if you travel on a low budget, this is a perfect opportunity to have a beer and free food.

    Drinking beer on Djurgarden.

    by Dizzyhead Updated Feb 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a Saturday night it can look awful.

    When it is summer time in Eskilstuna many people go to Djurgården and drink beer, play football or just relax in the sun. Lots of people walk their dogs in the area too. During the summer lots of people are here. They have barbeques and party here before they go to the night clubs. During day time family and friends play football and brännball (a Swedish way of baseball), spend time, walking, running, looking at other people and just enjoy the beautiful nature.

    The picture is one of the bad thing what is the result of people having fun, and when they don care to clean up after themselves. BAD!

    Well, if you read Kuriren, the local name, you can read about events, sport and things which happens in Eskilstuna. It is in Swedish of course. They have sometimes or had some pages in Finnish, because Eskilstuna has a big population from Finland. You can also read the paper on the internet and the web page is: www.ekuriren.se.

    Enjoy the Eskilstuna river in all ways you can!

    Well, Eskilstuna river is like the heart of the city and here could tourists use it for many things. These people use plastic boats or rings to fleet in the river. When I saw them they got a lot of attention from other people along the river. I guess these people had fun when they were out there. I did not have time to get closer and take better pictures or check what kind of people they were. THEY HAD FUN!!!!
