getting there

 

bridges

 

Sweden is connected with Denmark through the Oresund bridge. This is the most flexible way of travelling. Look at there website to aquire a brobizz, the profits gained by this will soon outstrip the initial price.

 

ferry

 

Plenty of choices. Stena lines has short crossings between Denmark and Sweden. For those who want a bit more comfort there is the possibility of the night ferry between Kiel and Gothenburg. By booking early in the year, the price of this night trip might work out cheaper than driving across the bridges once you ad up all the extra miles, fuel and toll. You can even hop on a freight ship in the port of Zeebrugge and have a unique experience. They do take cars and caravans, but book early as space is limited.

 

flying

 

Landvetter airport sits on the outskirts of Gothenburg. There are car rental agencies but you can also take the airport bus to the centarl station. From there public transport will take you to Bengtsfors.

 

 

 

in Sweden

 

money

 

Bring a plastic card, you can pay with this even for small amounts,but you will find machines everywhere. This might come handy for those who want to go browsing in loppis shops or buy some smoked salmon from the old man up the road.

 

alcohol

 

Is more expensive than in Germany or Belgium. If you want and have the possibility, bring some from home. You can also stock up on the ferry. Alcoholic drinks below 3,5° can be bought at the local supermarket, anything stronger will have to be bought in the Systembolaget. Even for those who don't drink, going there is an experience. See al the Swedes rushing in on a saturday, 10 minutes before closing time.

 

supermarkets

 

All around Sweden with long opening hours. In Bengtsfors they are open untill 10pm, 7 days a week.

 

eating out

 

Go for a meal in a restaurant around lunchtime, they will serve 'dagens'. You will get a nice meal including a drink and coffee after for around 8-9 euro. A lot of this is in buffet style. In our town we've got Rosselsmagasinet but we also like Westra Sjuan in Säffle. On fridays you can have wonderfull desserts. Berga Bistro in Åmål is another beautiful location (old schoolhouse), with fantastic food by a French cook!
