As one of the oldest cities in Sweden and Northern Europe, there is no surprise that history is an important part of Västerå’s spirit. The legacy has shaped the city into one proud of its heritage and keen to explore and develop new cultures. Combined with the stunning nature of Lake Malaren it is a wonder people go anywhere else. Take in the sight of the cathedral with its oldest parts dating back to the 13th century or go hunting for art treasures. In Västerås there is always something to do.
