Södermanland's largest city is Eskilstuna, which lies by the river with the same name as the city. On Eskilstunaån's eastern side is Köpmannagatan in the Old Town. There were once shops with different types of crafts that were sold to pilgrims on a visit to see Sankt Eskil's relics. As the name suggests, he was the saint who gave the city its name.

For young visitors, Parken Zoo is a given destination. Here you can get to know domestic animals and experience exotic animals, splashing loose in the outdoor pool. Appropriately enough, one of the bike routes in Eskilstuna is called Lejonrundan and it is well suited for families with children. The package includes accommodation in a cottage for self-catering with 4 beds kitchen, shower and toilet. Note! Price from SEK 250 / person for 4 people in a 4-bed cottage. All cottages have kitchenette, shower, toilet, TV and free internet.

Here you will find bike map The lion round to print and take on the bike ride. It can be good as a complement to the signage along the road.

Vilsta camping had no control over sweden by bike. Our booking supplements were not included. Food, cleaning, bicycle. The cottage was unclean with broken glass outside. As compensation, the campsite "offered" the cleaning. So we did not have to clean when we left. Silly compensation, we had to clean to be able to use the cottage, and pick up the broken glass ourselves. The round we were going to ride, the lion round, was not very good. Is normally not particularly whiny of me and not so picky. But this was not good. The whole campsite was dilapidated. Would not recommend anyone to visit Vilsta
