Borlänge is a city that has always been open to new ideas. That music is an important part of Borlänge residents' lives is perhaps the reason why so many exciting musicians come from here: Mando Diao, Sugarplum Fairy, and Miss Li, to name a few.
Sweden's happiest football cup, the Dalecarlia Cup, is played every year. But those who want to move around also have a lot of other things to choose from. The Aqua Nova adventure pool is just one example. In Borlänge, it is also close to the wilderness for those seeking tranquility and physical challenge. Within 20 minutes from central Borlänge, there are, for example, Romme Alpin, the Adventure Mine Tuna Hästberg, and fantastic nature trails on Lake Runn. One mile east of Borlänge is Torsång, which is sometimes called the Venice of Dalarna.
The café by the river is a popular gathering place, and from here it is not far to the medieval church, the motor museum, and the homestead. Borlänge is today Dalarna's trading town number one with the shopping centers Norra Backa, Kupolen shopping center, and Borlänge center.
