What makes Västerås Västerås?
Of course, part of the answer lies in the beautiful location on the shores of Lake Mälaren. The archipelago with its small islands, the majority of which can only be reached by boat. Or via long-distance skates, as soon as the ice has become thick enough. The magnificent nature allows for long walks as well as action-packed bike rides and picnics in one of the cozy city parks. Excursion destinations attract equally interested people as well as those who enjoy life. From the cathedral, whose tower towers high above the city, to Sweden's largest ancient burial mound, Anundshög, to the award-winning Steam Hotel and action pool Kokpunkten, to the underwater hotel Utter Inn, to reputable golf courses, to the cozy Kyrkbacken, which houses more cultural monuments than ordinary villas. And probably, it is all the unique mix that makes Västerås Västerås.
