Travel to Lidkoping - A hidden gem by Lake Vanern in Sweden

Book a weekend in Lidkoping and admire beautiful buildings, buy unique handicrafts and explore gorgeous nature.

Lidkoping is located at the south-eastern coast of Vanern, Sweden's biggest lake. This is an ideal destination for boat excursions, fishing trips or swimming holidays. Don't miss Framnasbadet, where you find swimming pools and diving towers, or Filsbacksbadet, with a sandy beach, a kids' playground and a fun miniature golf course. Take a stroll along Lidkoping’s promenade, which will take you to Villabadet as well as many other beaches.

One of the first things visitors will spot is the many spectacular and interesting buildings scattered around the town. Lidkoping Town Hall boasts domed ceilings and a quirky tower. This used to be the hunting lodge of the Swedish count Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie, but the building is today home for a cafe and a tourist information centre. The same count was once also the owner of the grand Lacko Castle. Take a guided tour through the grandiose halls, admire precious gems in the treasury and historic weapons in the weaponry, or get tickets for an opera performed in the courtyard, Stora Borggarden.

At Lacko Castle you will find award-winning restaurant Hvita Hjorten, with locally produced ingredients. Enjoy a delicious meal as you admire the view over the surrounding landscapes. Take a closer look at the local flora and fauna with a wander through the nature reserve Kinnekulle only 20 kilometres north west of Lidkoping. Explore several walking trails and take in beautiful views over Lake Vanern from viewing points along the way.

Anyone interested in design and handicrafts can't miss out on a visit at Rorstrand Center. The historic china manufacturer Rorstrand produces beautiful kitchenware present in any Swedish home, providing you with perfect souvenirs to bring home from your visit. Apart from a museum, the centre also offers design shops like Iittala Outlet, where you can get pretty houseware and beautiful trinkets for your home.

One preferred route for trips to Lidkoping is by train from Gothenburg, as there are plenty of daily direct departures. Once in Lidkoping you can take local buses to destinations outside the town. Travelling by car from Jonkoping or Orebro takes between 2 and 3 hours.

You are sure to find lots to discover during a quiet stay in Lidkoping. Book your trip to Lidkoping and look forward to entertainment and attractions in a typical Swedish small town with plenty of unique charm.
