Trosa Things to Do

  • Sjalen's Profile Photo

    Kåkstan & Garvaregården

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 17, 2006

    After the town was set on fire by the Russians, it was rebuilt by craftsmen who then settled here, in what has become the oldest part of Trosa. Included amongst the lovely wooden houses is Garvaregården with the town museum and a nice café. This is also where you find some handicraft and galleries.

    Trosa Square

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 17, 2006

    Little Trosa square with its tiny town hall is a typical example of a Swedish wooden town. It is also around this area that you find most shops for your souvenirs.

    Boat

    by Sjalen Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The most scenic way to reach Trosa is of course from the sea, either with your own boat or with the Labrador from the nearby town of Nyköping summertime. The latter takes you through Stendörren nature reserve and a lot of other lovely archipelago sights and you can have a coffee or beer on board.

    Bus or train

    by Sjalen Written Jul 17, 2006

    Despite the scenic archipelago, most people have to arrive by land. If you don't have your own car, this can be done by train from Stockholm or Norrköping/Nyköping to nearby Vagnhärad (where you can see the old king's own waiting lounge as he had a summer castle in nearby Tullgarn) and then local bus as Trosa itself has no railway.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Various galleries: Handicraft

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 17, 2006

    At Garvaregården, but also down towards the guest harbour by the river mouth, there are several galleries with both more expensive art such as paintings and glass, and cheaper Swedish souvenirs, art made of driftwood etc.

Trosa Favorites

    Riverside walk

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 17, 2006

    Favorite thing: My favourite thing in Trosa is to stroll along the little river and admire the fantastic wooden houses with what we call "carpenter's delight" in Swedish. All those different panels and decorations along the balconies and gables that require patience to cut and fit.

    Yes please!
