Welcome to Åtvidaberg

Varied outdoor life, wonderful nature and interesting industry history — there are many reasons to visit Åtvidaberg.

Hunting, fishing and wonderful nature

Åtvidaberg's nature is rich in forests and hills and has more than 200 excellent swimming and fishing waters. Try your fishing luck – fishing permits are available to buy in many places for a reasonable price. There is excellent hunting, especially in late autumn. The tourist office will gladly help you to contact hunting organisers. Around Åtvidaberg you find one of Sweden's largest oakwood landscapes with many beautiful excursion points.

Historic football spirit

Åtvidaberg was host to the Brazilian national team (1966) and West Germany (European Championships 1992). Our football team ÅFF celebrated 100 years in 2007. It belongs to the football elite and is currently playing in Allsvenskan (Sweden's premier league), but Åtvidaberg is more than just football — our golf course is ranked as one of the most beautiful in Sweden, and is a challenge even for the skilled golfer.

Swedish industry district

The copper mining started in Åtvidaberg during the 14th century and led to the town's prosperity. This was the home of the global Facit group during the 20th century. Office furniture was made here for almost 100 years and office machines were sold all over the world for almost 50 years. Our memories from the era of copper mining and Facit are well preserved. The whole community is filled with historic traces of course , but there is also much to discover about our history in the local museums.

The combination of accomodation close to nature and historical retrospects makes a visit to Åtvidaberg a memory for life. Read more about different activities and sights by using the right side English menu. For more information and questions, please contact Åtvidaberg Tourist Office.
