Welcome to Sörmland, the castle destination of Sweden
The Edible Country – Eskilstuna
The table is located in Eskilstuna, a city recently labelled “the world capital of recycling” because of its efforts towards sustainable evolution. It created the world’s first recycling mall, ReTuna – the first real sustainable shopping experience. The table is located at the peaceful Ekeby wetland, which lies on the opposite side of ReTuna. Getting to the table from the city centre is easy. Simply take a bike tour or stroll along the Eskilstuna River or if you prefer, you can choose public transportation.
Welcome to Sweden’s castle capital, Sörmland. In the forests of Sörmland, we have a total of 400 castles and manor houses. Many are open to the public, such as Sundbyholm’s Slott, where you can visit to relax in the spa, fine dine, enjoy a conference or simply to experience natural beauty. In addition to the do-it-yourself experience, Sörmland offers beautiful landscapes, plenty of forestry and nature with Sweden’s longest lowland route, called Sörmlandsleden. You can even try stress therapy within nature to get your balance back. In Sörmland, you will find culinary experiences with a strong focus on game meat and locally produced food from our local food and beverage producers, who protect its identity. To read more about the tables, additional experiences and other activities, visit Stockholm Country Break.

The Edible Country – Nyköping
Nyköping is a city by the sea; the Baltic Sea to be precise. Just an hour south of Stockholm and only 7 minutes from Skavsta Airport, you’ll find a vast archipelago of uninhabited islands to explore and long to return to. Come and explore smooth rocky outcrops and protected natural harbours, and just pause for a while. You can even get up close to sea eagles and seals. The Sörmlandsleden winds sweep passed the table behind Nynäs Castle – one of Sweden’s most well-preserved mansions. Stay with us for a while and sleep over in the old distillery behind the castle with its own dock, or continue along the gravelly cliffs, deep forests and glittering lakes. This is a place you will surely want to return.
For a true Swedish outdoor experience, the adventure starts here. Seeing wild animals in their true habitat has never felt so personalized. Come and see the moose, deer, wild boars, beavers and the white-tailed eagle living right next to the small towns and villages. Why not go on your own private “wildlife safari” in the light summer evenings? Or you can enjoy togetherness with family and friends at Lasätter’s Farm, nominated for the Ecotourism Award 2020.

The Edible Country – Strängnäs
Selaön’s beautiful scenery and winding lanes make it perfect for excursions. The largest lake island in Sweden, Selaön is also one of the areas with the most ancient monuments, boasting many runestones and burial mounds. Here, close to Äleby gård estate and the baroque Mälsåker Castle, the table is placed beneath ancient oaks with views across fields and water in the heart of a country-house landscape typical of Södermanland. Äleby offers tranquillity and genuine seclusion just 90 km from Stockholm, with the final 10 km on a no-through road before Äleby comes into view on a hill on the shores of Lake Mälaren. With the lake, forest, fields and large numbers of game animals, Äleby is an oasis for relaxation. Yet not far away is the picturesque town of Mariefred and the beautiful Gripsholm Castle.
