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. This tour is no challenge - just pure enjoyment. You get to experience both beautiful nature and the wings of history, along the way there is much to discover: cozy picnic areas, the harbor with its folk life and Nyköping's house where the theater Gästabudet is played in the summer.
On steel stallions through the city
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.

A walk in the countryside
