The Tourist Attractions of Orebro:
Wadkoping (Old Town)
Wadkoping is a small village of historic wooden houses that have actually been moved here to Orebro from other areas to create a museum of 18th century buildings. Many are wooden and painted red. Within the Wadkoping area, there are two buildings, King’s House and Cajsa Warg’s House that have museums housed inside. While walking around, you can also stop at a cafe or browse some of the small shops.
The city water tower, named Svampen, is a large mushroom-shaped building that has a restaurant on the top. It’s an interesting sight, and you can see some great views over Orebro from the observation deck.
Gustavsvik Water Park
Gustavsvik is one of the largest and busiest water parks in Sweden, and has swimming pools, water slides and a spa, restaurant and campground. There are both indoor and outdoor water slides, so the park can be open year-round. There is a wave pool, a wild-water chute and a lagoon aquarium too.
Built to protect the River Svartan Bridge, the first tower of Orebro Castle was built in the late 13th century, and more fortifications were added to the construction over the next few hundred years. It’s located on a small island and the grey stone building is a medieval style fortress. Most of the building is open to the public for tours.
