Weekend trips in Sweden
Sometimes you just want to get away, right?
It doesn't have to be far. Just a comfortable place to sleep, some great food and a new experience.
Here are our favourite weekend getaways in Sweden!

Quintessential small-town beauty with gorgeous buildings, well-heeled inhabitants and a majestic river flowing through.
Where to stay ↑
Therese Engström has created a calming, beautiful atmosphere in her gorgeous Villa Milsten, built in 1913 and meticulously renovated. The interiors and warm service makes you never want to leave.

✓ Good to know: Our favourite room is the Västra Rummet. (We have ended up here more than once after a late night at Mellbygatan.)
Where to eat ↑
Whether you are looking for lunch, dinner or a good cocktail, Mellbygatans Restaurang will always deliver. Owners Samuel (behind the bar) and Emil (in the kitchen) offer a solid experience and a great vibe.
✓ Good to know: Ask Samuel for any cocktail or just let him surprise you.
Where to drink ↑
The smoothly renovated bar at Lidköpings Stadshotell is a great spot bot for a pre-dinner drink and a night cap.
✓ Good to know: At weekends, "Stadt" turns into a night club, so we don't recommend it for sleeping.
What to do #1 ↑
The production of Rörstrand porcelain – the second oldest in Europe – moved to Lidköping in 1936. In the old factory area you now find shops, a Rörstrand/Iittala outlet, restaurants and the new Rörstrand Museum.
What to do #2 ↑
Next to Lidköping, along the lake Vänern, lies Kinnekulle, a mountain with amazing views and lots of history. Check out the pretty village of Hällekis, Husaby Church and get a snack at Café På Klostret.
What to do #3 ↑
If the weather is hot, head out to Svalnäs and Sweden's most beautiful lake beach. Bring a picnic, some rosé and hammocks to hang between the trees along the sand. Stop at Mejeriet i Söne for some traditional fika!
