Gamla Stan

Reviewed By Ralf M - Shanghai, China

I assume, many international tourists will pass this old town without hesitation, having no idea, what they are missing. I came here again after 40 years, and enjoyed the natural tranquility of this old town with its own character: Cathedral, Esplanade, Harbour,...
A beauty worth to have a stop and take some time here.

Mariestad Cathedral

Reviewed By Ralf M - Shanghai, China

When I come to a town of 15,000 inhabitants, greater Area 25,000 people, I barely would expect such a huge Cathedral. An Monument of old times. - And of simple shape, I think
If you have an opportunity to enter, you might find some inscriptions in an old language - somewhere in between Swedish and German of today...

Lugnas Qvarnstensgruva

A small and exciting mine where all dare to enter. The guide will take you on a breathtaking journey through time and tells of millstones, geology, monks and hard work, both inside the mine and in the area. The business is run by a nonprofit organization and the mine has been open to visitors for over 80 years.

It is an amazing. Now I can understand why National Geographic have been there twice. It is really amazing forest to walk around. The cave is totally fantastic. I have been there in a group from University of Gothenburg. Really nice to do an excursion with friends there.

Nice looking bridge and a pretty good view. but really, it is nothing to drive any distance for. Go here just if you happen to be close.

Truly worth going out here either by boat or bike. Rövarsand is by far our favourite beach out of all. Perfect place to camp over night.

Vadsbo Museum

Reviewed By Paul K - Lymington, United Kingdom

We visited Mariestad on a very rainy day in June 2014 and chose to visit the Vadsbo Museum during our short time there. The site is split among several buildings forming part of the Royal Residence. In addition to the section on Mariestad City history, there is a most interesting section devoted to the development of industry, featuring exhibits from both former and present local manufacturers, including Electrolux, Unica, Nike and Maxi Yachts.
The staff in the entrance shop could not have been more helpful, speaking English and sharing considerable knowledge. Furthermore, on the day of our visit, there was a wonderful performance by a brass sextet in the café and an art workshop aimed at youngsters, run by the lively cultural development officer from the Town Hall.
We returned having had a most uplifting experience.

Hit tar du dig med egen båt eller organiserad båttur från tex Spiken utanför Lidköping. Givetvis är en sådan här utflykt väderberoende. Öser det ner, inte så roligt. Båtturentar ca 1 timma vid bra väder. Väl framkommna kan man med fördel välja att vandra runt, bra markerade leder finns. Ta med badkläder när det är den tiden! Har du inte egen matsäck finns det två matserveringar på ön. Även boende av olika sorter finns. Lurö kan vara din möjlighet att stilla ner din själv i havets närhet

Dit is een paradijsje voor chocolade liefhebbers. Je kunt er allerlei soorten (chocolade) taartjes en bonbons of pralines krijgen. Het is tevens een soort tearoom dus ook geschikt voor koffie en thee. Vriendelijke medewerkers achter dd toonbank.
