Holiday home on Lake Vänern: a door to another world
Lake Vänern dominates the lakes of Sweden, as the largest in the country and the third largest in Europe. Formed ten thousand years ago just after the last Ice Age, the lake is home to numerous marine species, uniquely different from those found in freshwater lakes.
Where to Find Your Holiday home on Lake Vänern
Rent a holiday house in Mariestad. The city is family friendly, offering amazing beaches, open-air heated pools, and many cycling trails. Here, you can go fishing on the river Tidan and visit the islands of Brommö and Torsö. Do not pass up the opportunity to visit the city of Gullspång. An ideal holiday rental awaits in this picturesque town, through which flows the Gullspång River. Here, you can book a holiday house with a lake view and enjoy the proximity to the water. Families with kids will love swimming or boating along the river. Be sure also to stop by the Maritime Museum and Railroad Museum, for indoor fun. Another great location with many holiday rental opportunities is Kristinehamn. Look for a holiday apartment or a nice holiday house and explore what the city has to offer -- a boat tour along the smooth cliffs is beautiful, or you can just head to the beach from the door of your holiday rental. Located on the northwestern shore of the lake, the city of Åmål has a quaint old town and offers an annual blues festival every July.
