  • Gamla Uppsala

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Uppsala Things to Do

    The history of the Gamla Uppsala Church dates back to the 11th century, when the first church was built on the site of a former pagan temple. It burnt down in the middle of the 13th century and was later rebuilt. The current appearance is from the 14/15th century and the building is much smaller than the original church. When I came to Gamla...

  • Odinsborg, Gamla Uppsala

    3 out of 5 stars

    Uppsala Restaurants

    A nice enough cafe at Gamla Uppsala. Go up to the cashier and order your food. The cafe is geared primarily to Swedes, but the staff tries hard to explain the menu to foreign tourists. After you order (and pay), you'll be given a numbered flag. The staff will bring the your order out to you. The food won't win any culinary awards, but it's...

  • To Skokloster

    Bålsta Transportation

    The nicest way to get to Skokloster is easily by boat from Uppsala - the m/s Carl Gustaf. But don't worry if you're out of luck - you can also catch a commuter train to Bålsta from Stockholm (just remember the extra fee if you have SL cards only, as you cross a county border) and then continue by the local Uppsala county buses to Skokloster. Pay...

  • Skokloster Castle

    Bålsta Things to Do

    This castle is one of the most well-known in Sweden. It was built in the 17th century by nobleman Carl Gustaf Wrangel, who wanted a modern palace in his childhood area, as a base for when he was in Sweden. Fortunately for us, he was rarely here as he was in charge of the Swedish part of Germany, and this means that the castle stood un-heated for...

  • Skokloster Church

    Bålsta Things to Do

    The church is built on land originally given to Cistercian nuns during the 13th century by king Canute the Long. Herman Wrangel, owner of the surrounding land and Carl Gustaf's father, had the church restored in the 17th century when the reformation had hit Sweden, and then included a side chapel for the Wrangel family which you can see on the...

    The paintings were created by Albrekt Målare ("målare" is the Swedish word for "painter"), better known as Albertus Pictor, his Latin name. He was born in Ymminghausen (nowadays Imminghausen) in Hessen, Germany, but we don't know exactly when. It is estimated to have been somewhere between 1440 and 1445.In 1465 he became a burgher of Arboga. That's...

    Härkeberga Things to Do

    At the same time as the last overhaul of the paintings were undertaken, also tests were done to determine exact what colours the paintings originally had. One has long known that darker colours, like the brown or black parts, has once been red. The analysis revealed that also the from the beginning yellow parts in many cases have blackened, as well...

    Bus to Almunge

    by MalenaN Updated Apr 10, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Uppsala to Almunge it takes 35 minutes by bus. The bus is running twice per hour during Monday - Friday and once per hour during weekends. It is bus number 809, with destination Knutby, that goes through Almunge. A one way ticket cost 70 SEK if you buy it on board the bus with bank card (April 2014), but it is cheaper with prepaid tickets. You will get the cheapest fare if you have a UL-card charged with money. Than it cost 40 SEK.

    There are also buses from Arlanda airport to Almunge. The bus has number 806 and it is running once per hour during Monday - Friday and once every second hour during weekends.

  • Forsmarks Wärdshus

    Forsmark Restaurants

    Forsmark Wärdshus is situated in the historical part of Forsmark. They serve Swedish food of high quality and when I was there today’s lunch was Wallenbergare (made of ground veal, cream, eggs and bread crumbs), mashed potatoes, green peas and lingonberries, so that is what I chose to eat. It was a Saturday and the lunch was 120 SEK (May 2012)....

    Three minor old things, that are still in use, caught my eye today.Picture 1: this is an old SJ (the national company that runs train traffic) train stop sign in Marielund. It's just outside of the station house and it's still in use because of the Lennakatten train.Picture 2: an old speed limit sign. The ones in use are more modern.Picture 3: this...

    Faringe Things to Do

    One of the conductors asked if we wanted to see some more steam trains at the workshop where the society Stockholm-Roslagens Järnvägar museiförening gives maintenance or renovations to the machines they have, and all of us said yes. We walked about 500m and along some of the tracks and saw some more trains, including an dold snow plow and then we...
