Do & See

Västerås is a city rich in history, culture and entertainment. There is Anundshög, the burial mound, that dates back to the 900s. Västerås Cathedral, whose oldest parts are from the 13th century, a popular modern concert hall, interesting museums and plenty of fun activities. Engsö, Tidö and Västerås Castles, Vallby Open Air Museum and Kyrkbacken are some of the obvious attractions, as well as Lake Mälaren with its rich boat life. The list is very long and there really is something for everyone here in Västerås.
