Södermanlands Län Things to Do

  • Brandt Contemporary Glass

    For me the main attraction of Torshälla is "Åsa Brandt". She is a glass artist and she has her workplace, shop and gallery here in Torshälla. She does wonders with glass! And I can really recommend making a stop here when you are interested seeing some of her work. Her works involves everything from beautiful glasswork, vases to more real "works of...

    The Sigurdsristning is a special place with a lot of history. You can see it on the side of a quiet road, somewhere in between the trees. A little sign tells you where it is, and when you climb up the rock you see this: A huge rock with carved pictures surrounded by runic inscriptions. But what you feel is history, and lots of it.

  • The tegelslagarsstuga

    Hahaha, no, this is not my house! This is the "tegelslagarsstuga" or in English: "the cottage of the brickmaker". I really like this little house, hidden in the woods, close to my house.. I think it looks so picturesque. It gives the idea of the area though, rural, picturesque and quiet. The house dates back to the 17th century. Many of the big...

  • Welcome to Södermanland! :-))

    This is where I live! In Södermanland! In a tiny little village called Sundbyholm!

  • Fiholm Slott

    I visited this Fiholm Castle during a bicycle tour from my home. It's not that far from where I live (about 10 - 15 kilometres), hahaha, if you don't mind the hills. Hmmm... they are not really hills I guess, hahaha, but it isn't flat either. But if you are from the Netherlands, like me, every bump in the road feels like a hill :-)It's a beautiful...

  • The Runic Stone at Jäder

    There are many runic stones to be seen in this part of Sweden, especially around Lake Mälaren. I know of about a dozen or so in my area. I think they are wonderful to see as they have survived so many centuries and bare so much history with them. Rune stones are standing stones with runic inscriptions dating mainly from 200 to the year 1100. In...

  • Nature reserve "Rördrommen"

    You can see the Rördrommen" on the right site of the road. This is your main gateway to get into the little nature reserve at the lake. The name is very appropriate because "Rördrommen" is the name of a rare bird you can spot here: Rördrom or Botaurus stellaris. Although..... actually seeing this bird will be a very difficult task as the bird is...

  • Jäder church

    From Eskilstuna we travel east and the next stop we make is in a little village called Jäder. The church here is quite interesting. The church originates back to the year 1000 and started off as a wooden church. During 1100 the church was rebuild in stone. Around 1600 this whole area is owned by the family "Oxtenstierna", a well-known and rich...

  • Torshälla

    Torshälla is an old trading place. The name Torshälla probably used to be "Torsharg" named after the God Thor. In the fountain in city centre you can see a statue of Thor. The city of Torshälla is really old and got its city rights already in 1317.Nowadays Torshälla is almost one with the city of Eskilstuna as this city expanded so much. I have to...

  • Sundby church

    This is a picture of Sundby Kyrka. This little church is only 10 minutes walk from my home, and it takes a nice little walk through the woods to get here. The church is my fav in the area, it is small and quite picturesque on the inside. And this is where I got married, so this little church is extra special to me :-)))The Sundby church dates back...

  • Mariefred

    When you visit Gripsholm Castle (see my previous tips), you mustn’t forget to visit the village of Mariefred as well. There is nothing really spectacular to see, but it's such a lovely quiet and picturesque village. I just loved the atmosphere of this little town. There are a few attractions though in Mariefred that you might like to see. There is...

  • Painted stones at Gripsholm Castle

    Like a lot of castles, Gripsholm has been altered and added to several times since they first began to build the castle.

The building on the left side is of a lighter and...

    The cathedral was built in 1280 on a beautiful spot, on a hill, towering over the city of Strängnäs. Strängnäs got its city rights in the same year, which makes it one of Sweden's oldest towns. In the Middle Ages Strängnäs was among the country's most important towns and the Bishop was the King's representative.The cathedral knows a lot of Swedish...

  • "Hand of God", Sculpture by Carl Milles

    A sculpture in Eskilstuna that I love is this one by Carl Milles. It is located in the city park Stadsparken and it is called "Hand of God". When you are at the Kloster Church (see previous tip) follow the river a little bit, and you can see this sculpture towering high above you close to the river bank.This sculpture "Hand of God" is from 1954 and...

  • Kloster Church in Eskilstuna

    This is the main church in Eskilstuna and it is hard to miss seeing it when you visit this town. It is on the other side of the Eskilstunaån river from the downtown area. The church is surprisingly new, it was built from 1925 to 1929. I have to admit I always thought it was much older than that. They were able to build this church because of the...

  • Fors Kyrka in Eskilstuna

    Let me show you some of my favourite spots in Eskilstuna. First of all the Fors Kyrka (Fors Church). This church in Eskilstuna is really worth a visit. The Fors Church was built in the 11th century on same place as a wooden church used by bishop Eskil from England. To make a good photo of the Fors Kyrka is quite hard because it is all surrounded by...

  • Eskilstuna

    Eskilstuna is the city I live closest to. It is the place where I go for my shopping, where I study, visit the library, where I like to go out for dinner, etc, etc. Eskilstuna is a very old place. The area around Eskilstuna was already well known during the Vikings. But having said that, I have to admit that Eskilstuna is not a real tourist...

  • Sundbyholm Castle

    Well, I can't show you my region without showing 'my' castle! So here is one more photo of Sundbyholm and now of its castle. Hahaha, I love castles, so what more can you wish for than having one almost in your backgarden :-))Sundbyholms castle is not a 'real' castle anymore. It is now in use as a restaurant and hotel. The castle was built from 1639...

  • Sundbyholm

    Sundbyholm is located on Lake Mälaren, a beautiful lake in the middle of Sweden. It has a little recreation area located right here at the lake. For me it means a nice place to walk to (it is only 10 minutes to go here) and relax. It has its charm as well in the summer as in the winter. Somehow the lake always looks wonderful. I love to watch the...
