Arboga is located approximately 80 miles (129 kilometers) from Stockholm, the country's capital.
When it comes to getting the most out of your holiday, keep in mind that Arboga is merely the tip of the iceberg; Lake Malaren is dotted with scenic delights. Places in the vicinity of Arboga are Hallstahammar, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest, and Karmansbo, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south.
While you are here in Arboga, see Orebro. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, this regional city is where you'll find Gustavsvik, Conventum and St. Nicholas Church. If you have enough time, visit Orebro County Museum, Marieberg Galleria and Orebro Castle before heading back to Arboga.
Each place holds a fascinating history and Lake Malaren has its own stories to tell. The historic palaces here are well worth visiting.
Pack your own gear or rent it locally, and discover the region's water activities. Swimming is one option. Another one is water skiing.
One of the most useful compliments you can pay to a region's people is to go to the trouble of memorizing a few common words and phrases. Knowing just a few useful phrases, such as "Vill du dansa med mig?", which is "Would you like to dance with me?", can help to make your stay more enjoyable. And also "Varifrån kommer du?", which means "Where are you from?"
You'll never want to bid "Hej då" (farewell) to this appealing place.
