Tips on things to do in Örebro

The hotel’s central location makes First Hotel Örebro a perfect base for exploring Örebro and its surroundings. Visit Örebro Castle, the open-air museum Wadköping or take the children to the waterpark Gustavsvik Lost City.

See our tips on things to do in Örebro below, or speak to a member of our staff if you need more inspiration or ideas of what to do while visiting.

Örebro castle

Örebro Castle

Örebro Castle is one of Örebro’s greatest and most popular attractions. Just how old the castle really is no one knows, but it has been the centre of city life since the Middle Ages.

Try venturing on a ghost walk, explore the dark and humid dungeons or see the magnificent halls created for Charles IX and Charles XIV Johan.

Gustavsvik Lost City

The Lost City waterpark is entirely unique. Here you are surrounded by whitewater streams, mighty water slides, a wave machine and climbing wall.

So, bring your swimwear when you visit Örebro and enter the Lost City waterpark, which is located 5-10 minutes by car from the hotel.

Svampen Örebro

Svampen – Örebro’s best view

The Svampen (Mushroom) water tower in Örebro is the place for those seeking to view the city and its surroundings from above.

The 58-metre tall tower holds 9 million litres of water and receives about 100,000 visitors annually. Should you feel peckish as you ascend the hill, there is also a restaurant.

Take in the view – can you see First Hotel Örebro from above?

Wadköping i Örebro


The picturesque open-air museum area of Wadköping is beautifully situated by the city park and the Svartån stream approx. 20 minutes from the hotel on foot.

Here, you will find farms from the 16th century and later relocated to the open-air museum from near and far.

Wadköping is open year-round and offers activities and events for both young and old.
