This park is situated on the northern end of a peninsula, just across the sound from Uppsala. Though it is a peninsula, it is most conveniently reached from Uppsala by water, as the nearest road connection is some distance south, a good deal closer to Stockholm. Apart from activities like hiking and camping, the park has large dunes and open spaces that are used for activities like ATV'ing.
A castle full of activity, Sparreholm is an ideal weekend getaway visit for the family with its charming lakeside setting, rich history, interesting museums and even an equestrian center! It is a popular attraction in the summer when the horse training center sees many visitors in dressage for training alongside many well known equestrians. The equine center is available for rent and horse shows are put on here as well. An automobile museum with vintage cars on display is located here, along with a jukebox, bicycle, telephone and trolley museum. The castle and its rooms are leased out on rent for private functions such as weddings, parties and conferences.
This is one of the many nature preserves that gird the shores of Lake Mälaren. It contains extensive hiking trails as well as a few choice coves and inlets that are great for swimming, boating and fishing.
This golf club is situated just northwest of the city and west of Gamla Uppsala. In addition to a beautifully manicured course, it also offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and a modest pub and restaurant and pro shop.
This ice skating arena, formerly the home of Uppsala's regional hockey team, is now open to the public since the action has been moved to the spanking new ice at the Uppsala Arena. The old facility hosts regular skating nights, ice shows and other events on a regular basis.
Gamla Uppsala is the core of the old prehistoric settlement that became the modern city. Once the seat of Norse worship in the Viking age, nothing remains of the glorious temples and legendary sites of sacrifice and worship of bygone days but burial mounds and rune stones, but the museums and themed attractions of the village provide some fascinating insight into the history of one of Sweden's richest points of history and heritage.
This little nature preserve is sandwiched between a wooded hillock and the banks of the Fyris. It is not large, but does contain some of the finest options for camping, hiking and picnicking.
This is the site for Formula Offroad championships.
This modern playground has disabled access. It is a place where all children can move around, handle the playing equipment and participate in the games. Among other things, you will find a raised sandbox, an adventure fortress for games and exercise, indications for the visually impaired and a stable swing that older kids can use, too. The park has animals for the children to meet, including rabbits, hens and sheep.
Tom Tit's Experiment, an adventure in technology and science, is located in Södertälje but is well worth the trip. The displays are interactive and you can touch and turn as much as you want. There are huge halls packed with fun filled things, such as strange machines and pictures. There are exhibits about the human body and outer space and all its different constellations. For the younger children there is a puppet theatre.
Sydpoolen is a famous and unique weekend destination. Kids love the swimming pool, with its waves, currents, waterfall and slides.

There is Pigge's Lagoon, an indoor water park designed specially for younger children, with a warm-water pool. Sydpoolen also has a restaurant and a bar.
