The shopping on the Baltic Sea an hour south of Stockholm has a well-preserved city center dating back to the Middle Ages. On a bike ride through the city you can experience both the castle and the speedway museum. Here there are friendly streets, inviting little shops and cafes, as well as lovely views of the water. However, the charming city also holds a bloody past…

Blommenhof Hotel is just one kilometer from Nyköping Central Station and five kilometers from Skavsta Airport, with the E4 next door. Nevertheless, the calm prevails here. The hotel is surrounded by lovely mixed forest and the water lily trail passes a bit away. The atmosphere is laid back relaxed and in the cozy rooms with high standards you sleep well. Borrow a bike and head out to discover Nyköping's strawberry spots.

Start by cycling into the center of Nyköping and start your tour at the café Tovastugorna next to Nyköpingshus. The medieval Renaissance castle is best known for its guest banquet in 1317, when King Birger Magnusson invited his brothers the dukes Valdemar and Erik for Christmas celebrations. After the meal, he let them imprison them in revenge for the so-called Håta game when they in turn kept Birger prisoner for two years. The dukes were thrown into the Nuclear Tower's round, still preserved, lower cavity where they both died, according to tradition in a painful famine.

Continue your trip along the river and you will pass NK-Villan Kulturhus with various exhibitions and the Brewery on Behmbrogatan with artisans and artists. Take a look at the beautiful Behm bridge over Nyköping River before turning down towards the Old Monastery and All Saints Church dating back to the 13th century. Prost Pihls farm is a well-preserved 18th-century farm where you can spend the summer in the beautiful garden. Honor our former Foreign Minister Anna Lindh with a visit to her memorial site, before coming to Östra main street with its many small shops with secondhand and furnishings, cafes and restaurants. For the shopping stove, a detour is also recommended to Hellmanska farm on Västra Trädgårdsgatan, the farm houses a shop with focus on interior design and bakery and café where you eat organic and nutritious. Join the tour again and you will soon pass some parks, where you can show up the picnic you brought with you from the hotel and let yourself taste a good baguette. Down in the harbor, it is full speed in the summer - grab an ice cream and scout the boat life from a bench on the dock.

When you step back to Blommenhof, freshly brewed afternoon coffee awaits and maybe a game of boules in the garden. Change into a bathrobe and paw down to the relaxation area for a swim in the pool. Then a festive three-course dinner awaits.

After enjoying Blommenhof's large breakfast buffet in peace and quiet, it's time to go home. We hope you have many fond memories with you home from the bike ride and the beautiful surroundings.

Great trip, we had our own bikes with us. But calling it a cycling trip feels a bit unjustified. The organizer had no ready-made maps or tours to show. We were allowed to cycle as we wanted, it turned out well, but we managed the tours all by ourselves (yes, we have ordered and received a cycling map of Östergötland/Sörmland, but it was nothing further, blah, you can't see the length of the tours, that map was in the mailbox when we got home).

The hotel is clean and tidy. Very nice room. Unfortunately near the highway, constant noise, nothing we knew. We had emailed and they responded at what time we wanted to have the three-course dinner that was included in the package, but this had not arrived. Nor that we stated in the same email when we wanted the picnic which was also included. It seemed to come as a surprise to them. We think the three course dinner was very good, but the breakfast not as expected, more on par with hostels or low class hotels; burnt bacon pieces, factory-made pancakes in a 4-star hotel? We stayed two nights, got no bed and cleaning of the room after the first night, asked if they forgot it, got a hovering answer that it "enough" was not so now, I had to specify, you mean due to covid? This with no cleaning I think I should have been informed about when booking / checking in. We also lacked fruit presented in bowls at the 4-star hotel, but maybe that was also a covid measure? In that case, information. We were given fruit in the room on arrival. But it was not open to take. About cycling. We found the referenced map app insufficient, took out our own routes via google map. Cycling along the so-called excursion road, between Nyköping and Trosa felt risky, heavy traffic on the 80-road, no roadside at all! By the way, when we drove along that road, we only saw one or two elite cyclists, no summer vacationers. The cycle path ended in Sjösa. We returned to Nyköping and found our own alternatives, took the car to other starting points for more favorable cycling. It was very nice, but for this, as I said, both own initiatives were required in terms of cycling and to get there also a car. Nyköping, by the way, a very nice holiday town. In sum, we place ourselves in the middle in terms of grades.

Hello Eva,

How nice that you chose to visit us, and thank you for your detailed feedback! We have recently started working with bicycle packages and are trying to work out the best way of working and the material, and your comments are very helpful. It is true that we have many adaptations to Covid-19 right now, and I regret that the information did not reach you. It also sounds like we need to update the information about the bike path. I'm glad to hear you made the most of your stay, and I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I wish you a warm welcome back to us!

Nice accommodation with good food and good service. We typically had summer weather during the bike ride and had time for some shopping when the downpour came.

It would have been good if there was a note on what kind of road to cycle on. We would not have chosen the road with two children if we had known in advance that it was a country road at 70-80 km/h.

Everything was great except we lacked a bike map. Difficult to find good bike paths outside the center.

We had a great weekend with good service and very friendly service. But I would have liked a bike map. It was obviously over and it would have been fun and a little easier to see the different bike options.
