Kids & families
Tiveden National Park
About an hour’s drive from the city centre of Örebro, Tiveden National Park offers extraordinary experiences. The 1,352-hectare area has 25 kilometres of various hiking trails, and the park provides access to one of the largest primeval forests in southern Sweden, which also surprises visitors with boulders standing 10 metres tall.
For the whole family – search the map for a hiking trail with a suitable length and enjoy the splendid Nordic outdoors.
Scandinavia’s largest aquatic centre Gustavsvik has activities outside the pool, too. The recently opened shopping centre with various shops, restaurants and cafes and Sweden’s largest playground with various attractions and activities offer fun for older and younger patrons.
Culture and architecture
One of the major sights here is the 700-year-old castle smack dab in the city centre. It has played an important role in Swedish history. The castle, completed in 1364, is characterized by the imposing grandeur of its architecture and the large attractive park surrounding it. Although the castle is officially in use as the governor’s residence, the castle’s doors are open to visitors most of the time and various concerts and exhibitions are held here as well.
The most popular and often visited attraction is the 58-metre-high Svampen water tower, its terrace and restaurant windows afford a magical view of the entire city and surrounding area.
Have a pleasant lunch and enjoy the amazing view of the city.
Food, drink and nightlife
Take time to walk in the picturesque old town of Örebro, Wadköping, and allow yourself to be swept away by the cobblestoned streets and squares, exhibitions and endearing cafes, where it would be a sin to pass up on kanelbullar, classic Swedish cinnamon rolls.
One of the most popular venues for the students attending university in the city is Örebro Ölcafé, whose menu features burgers made on the premises and stuffed hot sandwiches. We recommend the local craft beer.
The Bishops Arms
A traditional English-style pub where not a single interior element is out of place. A wide selection of various bottled and draft beers from large brewers and smaller producers and classic English style pub menu make this one of the most popular places among locals.
Köpmangatan (Merchant’s Street)
The large city-centre shopping centres Krämaren and Libra Gallerian have something for every taste. Walking down graceful Köpmangatan, you’ll find work by Swedish artists and designers and famous brands like Lindex, Oscar C and New Yorker.
A real shopper’s paradise can be found a ways outside the city centre. Nine kilometres out of town is one of Sweden’s newest and most modern shopping centres, Marieberg Galleria. The shopping centre has more than 100 different shops, restaurants and cafes from IKEA to BIK-BOK, HEMTEX and H&M.
Discover Scandinavian design – affordably priced car rental makes it easy to visit the shopping centres outside the Örebro city centre.
Örebro has a good bus system. Bikes and pedestrians are also in a good place. As the city is small and compact, and the buses are comfortable and frequent, the city is a snap to get around in.
