Ulricehamn Things to Do

  • Hofsnäs Nature Reserve

    This whole area is sandwiched between the lakes Torpasjön and Yttre Åsunden. To the north is Torpa Stenhus. To the south is Hofsnås Herrgård. A small single road leads from Torpa Stenhus over a very narrow causeway into the nature reserve. This road winds its way through a heavily wooded area for two or three miles with the lakes visible through...

  • Hofsnäs Herrgård

    This is a very pleasant cafe or rest area or bathing stop. It is open for April until December with series of activities from the Easter festival to Midsummer and then the Christmas Festival.All through the summer there are various activities orgainised but the best part of the area is the superb bathing in the Lake.

  • Rune stones

    While in Sweden I like to visit as many Rune stones as possible. A number of them have references to battles and people in England which I always find surprising. This rune is by the side of the main road from Unricehamn to Falkoping, close to Dalum

  • The bathing area in winter

    Visited the bathing area we had spent many hours soaking up the sun. This time the walkways had been hauled onto the land. The lake frozen solid

  • Skating on the Lake

    Returning to Ulricehamn in the winter 2004 the lake we like so much was frozen soild with fishing and a childrens ice hockey match taking place

  • Torpa Stenhus (Stone House)

    We visited this famous medieval castle which is southeast of Borås. When we visited they were restoring the great hall walls. This was being done by painstakingly removing the topcoat of white paint and slowly exposing wonderful animal paintings underneath. The paintings were in blue outline. Once complete the restoration will represent a unique...


Ulricehamn Restaurants

  • Excellent food & service

    Don't miss a visit at Restaurang Åsunden while staying in Ulricehamn.A very nice restaurant with all what you as a costumer will nead.... I prefer their delicious Cour du filets Provencale - medium/rear of course

  • Grillad Svärdfisk - Excellent

    This is an excellent place for an English man in Sweden. The place is geared up for the twenty to thirty age groups but one is welcomed if you are a little older, thank goodness, or younger.The atmosphere has always been relaxing and the beer is excellent. The Bogesund beers are particularly palatable, the dark brew being my favourite. There are...

Ulricehamn Shopping

  • Watsoncomper's Profile Photo

    by Watsoncomper Updated Dec 29, 2006

    The main shopping street in Ulricehamn is primarily geared to Tourists in the summer, although it does have many of the shops needed to sustain the local population in general.

    In general terms the shopping area is based on a single pedestrianised, straight main road.

    As primarily tourists to the town we find it suits our particular needs. In summer this area is very busy but during the rest of the year it must be classed as quite.

    What to buy: Features Swedish glass and ornaments, traditional Swedish souvenirs as well as clothing shops, electrical items. As well as a number of cafes and eating-houses.

    What to pay: Prices are not expensive

Ulricehamn Off The Beaten Path

  • Lake View

    Following the 157 road from Ulricehamn towards Gällstad. Turn at the bathing sign to Skottek Gården and drive on past the restaurant along the lakeside towards Marbäck. At a small lay-by on a protrusion out into the lake gives a marvellous view back towards Ulricehamn along the lake.A cycle way also follows this road from Ulricehamn.

  • Olsbrostenen

    The rune stones in Sweden fascinate me. There are many but this one is a particularly fine example. The problem is in finding it.We had heard about the stone and had a map to find it - but finding it was another matter. We ended up in a farmyard then somebody’s garden before we finally found it hidden on the side of the road under a tree.The stone...

  • Wolf Pit

    On the 157 road from Ulricehamn, through Gällstad but just before you reach the turn off for Torsbo is a sign on the right for a wolf pit "fangstgrop". This takes you down a small pathway to the bottom of a hill. Walk to the top of the hill to see the site. Well worth a visit

The center I believe can be used by individuals or as a more serious competitive activity.There...
