Orebro General Information
Orebro, or Örebro, is the picturesque capital of Örebro County, Sweden, and approximately 200 km west of Stockholm. As a result, the small city of 130,000 people makes a convenient and worthwhile side trip from the cosmopolitan national capital. In addition, Orebro is a picture-postcard destination for anyone on a comprehensive tour of Sweden’s interior.
The venerable city sits on the shores of Lake Hjälmaren, relatively close to Lake Mälaren, Lake Vättern and massive Lake Vänern. Bucolic scenery and open-air wilderness is a hallmark of Orebro then and a magnetic attraction for countless visitors. Lake Hjälmaren is a popular midsummer hub in Sweden and hosts several major music festivals throughout the warm summer months. As a platform to explore this beautiful area of Nordic Europe, Orebro doles out excellent landmarks like Karlslund Manor, Oalus Petri Church, the iconic Mushroom Water Tower and Orebro Castle. Sports fans can catch Orebro SK football at Behrn Arena and classical music lovers will enjoy the Swedish Chamber Orchestra at the superb Orebro Konserthus. For heritage architecture, pristine recreation, solid restaurants and nightlife, Orebro is a convivial destination to consider in Sweden.
