Small roads & bike paths

Explore nature on a bike

In 2019 a new bike path that stretches from Sundbyholm all the way to Eskilstuna was built. Rent a bike at Sundbyholm’s castle and explore what our side of the world has to offer. On country roads you will be able to ride to Torshälla, a beautiful destination known for its many artists and the Ebeling Museum. If you instead aim your sights in a more southern direction, you will pass, among other things, the thousand-year-old Sigurd carving (Sigurdsristningen). The largest rock carving in Sörmland, which also happens to have served as an inspiration for the famous books and movies, Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. During your journey you will also pass through Björsund, with a small harbor and enjoy the view of both castles and churches.
