About the area

About Östergötland

Experience Östergötland and its many cultural offers, not to mention the splendid archipelago with its varied nature by the Baltic Sea.

The Kolmården Wildlife Park is situated north of Norrköping. Here you can meet animals from all over the world. Sit down in the dolphinarium and watch the magical dolphins perform or drive in your car among the wild animals. Here the day passes by very easily with a lot of fantastic experiences for the entire family. The safari park offers a great adventure as it is only the windscreen that separates you from the bears, wolves, lions, zebras and ostriches. Therefore, keep the windows and doors closed and your eyes open.

Linköping is the fifth biggest city in Sweden. It is lively and has a high pulse. It has a lot of bars, theatres and an impressing selection of restaurants for every taste and at any price level. Do you love to go shopping? If the answer is yes, the city is an Eldorado with a lot of shops and galleries. But it also has something to offer for those interested in cultural experiences – you might visit the old Linköping, the cathedral or the Air Force Museum. There are several beautiful castles, e.g. Ekenäs Castle which has the annually held rover tournament. Go exploring along the Göta Canal, which flows into the Roxen Lake, and along the Kinda canal down to the Kinda lakes which have beautiful surroundings with a lot of locks.

Reijmyre is situated in Norrköping municipality. The Reijmyre glassworks are some of the oldest in Sweden and were founded in 1810. It is beautifully located between Norrköping and Finspång in the middle of the deep Kolmård forest. The nearest archipelago is Arkösund, a small community by the sea, which is full of life in the summer, and here you will find many shops, pubs and hotels offering entertainment. Furthermore you will find the open air theatre, stalls with fine craft, yachting opportunities, ice-cream booths and magnificent bathing opportunities at Badholmarna.

Söderköping has beautiful surroundings, and it is especially a nice place in the summer. Enjoy the nice old town or go by bike along the canal. Climb the Ramunderberg and experience the town from above. Afterwards you can relax with one of the famous ice creams at Smultronstället, or you can try a Spanish lunch table at the restaurant La Uva which is located in the centre of the town square.

In the heart of Valdemarsvik you will find the popular marina. The Gryt and Tjust archipelagos with rocky as well as sandy beaches are very popular bathing beaches in the summer. Experience Astrid Lindgren’s adventurous world in Vimmerby in the northern part of Småland together with your children or grand children. It was here that the stories about Pippi Langstrømpe and Emil from Lønneberg were created.

About Sverige

Skerries, city or skiing in Sweden?

Experience the unique Swedish skerries. Rent a canoe or kayak and paddle among the thousands of small islands with raw and naked rocks or the bigger, forest-clad islands that are easy to reach from the main land.

If you are looking for a bit more adventure then take a trip to Gothenburg with the amusement park Liseberg with fun for the entire family. Stockholm is the place to go, if you love a city with beautiful nature, lots of history, culture and beautiful, world class design. If you are looking for an active winter holiday in Sweden you will find both cross-country and alpine skiing in the Swedish mountains.

Holiday home in the Swedish nature

All of our holiday homes in Sweden are surrounded by the scenic Swedish nature. DanCenter has numerous options across Sweden from Skåne, Småland, near Stockholm and in the Swedish skerries north of Gothenburg. Sweden is a country full of oppositions and therefore also full of opportunities for a holiday suited just right for you and your family.

Do you want to experience Sweden through the eyes of the children's author Astrid Lindgren? We can offer you the classic Swedish holiday home experience. Book an authentic, cosy, small, red wooden cabin on the edges of a pine forest along a beautiful lake in open country side. Your holiday in a traditional cabin in Sweden can help you reduce stress and forget all your troubles.

Go on a luxury holiday in Sweden

As a contrast to the idyllic cabin in Sweden you can also book a lovely, big holiday home. DanCenter offers different luxury holiday homes with room for the entire family. In Sweden we have big holiday homes fitting the entire family or groups up to 20 people. These include houses with swimming pool and whirlpool that you can enjoy both during summer or winter. Take a dip and cool off with your family on holiday in Sweden and the sun shines from a clear sky. You can also enjoy the warm water and a glass of champagne in the outdoor whirlpool on a cold winter's night. Or during the autumn break when the children splash in the pool and you enjoy the beautiful views of the colourful leaves falling from the trees.

Sweden is water, water and water

Sweden has been admitted to UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline. Middle and north of Sweden have countless rivers, lakes and streams criss-crossing the country. Sometimes you get the feeling that the country is swimming with only forests and fields acting as links between rivers and lakes. This is particular noticeable for the middle part of Sweden where the ice age left plain tracks. Thousands of lakes fill the gorges created when the ice retracted to the North.

At the exact place where the river Mälaren with fresh water meets the salt water from the Baltic you will find Stockholm spread across 14 islands and islets. But there is more: The Stockholm skerries just a few minutes sailing from the capital is comprised by a total of 24.000 islands and islets.

The Siljan lake is located in the middle part of Sweden called Dalarna. The lake and the surrounding towns are regarded as the historical centre of the country. From here, Sweden gradually becomes more raw and deserted. In Norrland, the only sound you hear in the enormous forests is from the roaring rivers.

For centuries, the rivers have been used for transporting logs to the coast. And where the rivers flow into the ocean is where the first settlements were founded several thousands of years ago. Höga Kusten in the north-eastern Sweden is permitted on UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline.

Sweden is a hit with the active family

Sweden has countless activities for children, young people and old people. It all starts when you book a holiday home or a cottage in Sweden, so the entire family has a god basis. Afterwards you have lots of room for social intercourse, fun and games as well as instructive activities for the entire family. The Swedish mountains provide plenty of opportunities for skiing during the winter. Sweden has lots of family-minded ski resorts. If you have booked a holiday home near the cities Stockholm, Malmø and Gothenburg, you will find plenty of activities. Bring your family to the zoos, amusement parks, museums and more.

Experience Sweden's mighty forests

Sweden has beautiful forests from north to south. To the south, in Skåne and Småland, where DanCenter can offer you a big selection of holiday homes and cabins, you will find the hardwood forests. This area is also known for its moose-safaris, a unique nature experience. Such an experience is a guarantee for talks when you return to the holiday home or cabin. Småland is also perfect for bike rides, horseback riding, canoeing and fishing.

If you have booked a holiday home in the middle or northern part of Sweden, you will find the landscape dominated by deep valleys, plateaus and vast fir and pine forests. Here you can bring your family berry and mushroom picking, enjoying the beautiful flowers in the spring or the may different colours of the leaves in the autumn. Take a refreshing dip in the forest lake and catch a fish for dinner. While the children play in these beautiful settings, mum and dad can prepare the freshly-caught fish in the open-concept kitchen and the grandparents can relax with a glass of wine on the sofa. If you have plans of going to Sweden, book a holiday home with DanCenter Holiday Rentals.

Midsummer in Sweden

The midsummer party in Sweden is truly unique. To many it is a symbol of the lightness, the light and the life force symbolic of the Nordic summer. Midsummer in Sweden is the biggest celebration of solstice in Scandinavia.

When the most Swedish of Swedish parties approach, the whole country is exited. Midsummer is traditionally a feast celebrated with family and friends, but if you are a tourist you are welcome to join the festivities. It is celebrated all over the country - by the coast, in the skerries, by idyllic lakes, in the mountains or one of the islands. All is good, as long as there is plenty of pristine and diverse nature around.
