Enjoy breakfast on the terrace or hopefully you can sit and enjoy in the lush garden. You also have the bicycles at your disposal this day.
It is no rush, and then you can remember that when the railroad needed to standardize time in Sweden in the mid-1800s to be able to make timetables, it was decided that time in Töreboda was to be the "original time". We hope you have got lots of new memories and pleasant experiences along the Göta Canal.
