Top 5 sights in Sweden
1. Gothenburg (Göteborg)
City of Gothenburg is often referred to as the western capital of Sweden. Located on the western coast, on the shores of the North Sea, Göteborg is ranked on almost every list you can find as a top destination to visit, if you are visiting Sweden. So be sure to include this western gem in your motorhome rental holiday plans!
The list of sights, events and things to see in Gothenburg is far too long to cover completely. Museums, medieval fortresses, theatres and even the small streets of Gothenburg or the neighboring town of Haga are an astonishingly beautiful representation of the royal history in Sweden. And if the history of the nation is not your cup of tea, the amusement parks, shopping centers and the surrounding western archipelago is guaranteed to have some treats for you as well.
2. Town of Sigtuna
Not far from the Touring Cars motorhome rental station in Märstä, is located the historical town of Sigtuna. The idyllic town with narrow streets and low wooden houses was found on the shores of Lake Mälaren over a thousand years ago.
Ancient runic stones, the ruined 13th century church and dozens of small coffee shops and boutiques along the old main street of Stora gatan are only a few of the dozens of good reasons why you should include Sigtuna on your agenda.
3. Sarek National Park
Sarek National Park is a part of the Lapponia area in the northern Sweden, and is included in the World Heritage list for its astonishing cultural and natural properties. The spectacular Rapadalen river deltas, mountain peaks reaching over 2000 meters and hundreds of glaziers are a sight of a lifetime!
In Sarek the midnight sun lights the days of the Saami people, who have lived under clear blue skies and the fresh Arctic winds from the beginning of time.
4. Visby and Gotland
Every motorhome rental in Sweden should include a stop over in Visby. The medieval town of Visby is located on the island of Gotland, south east of Sweden in the Baltic sea.
The era and the spirit of the Hansa merchants and seafarers is present in the town of Visby, and it is said it is the best preserved medieval city in the whole Scandinavia.
