Did you know that there is a dragon living in the Bronze Age grave Ströbohög just outside Köping? It is one of the exciting places that the millennial band Fenja will lead you on this bike ride. During the tour you cycle on a historic "treasure hunt" and look for runes. Once you've found them all, leave the answer to the Köpings Museum, located in the middle of town. All skilled runner hunters receive a small gift. 

This bike ride will take you to four of the places where there are exciting runes that are about a thousand years old. A rune stone is a selected rock with runes carved by a runner. Runes are writing characters that emerged centuries after the birth of Christ. The tour starts in the middle of Köping at Köpings Museum on Östra Långgatan 37. Before you go home, you can become a detective for a day and solve the city mystery ...
