Welcome to Falköping!
Our forefathers chose to settle in this area more than 5,000 years ago. Grazing cattle and rich harvests still offer the perfect conditions for successful local production of culinary necessities and delicacies. This is why we are both proud and confident when we welcome visitors to a place where you really can enjoy all the good things in Life.
Lake Hornborga is a magical place to visit in springtime, when thousands of cranes meet here to dance in the southern part of the lake. Around Lake Hornborga, one of Europe’s most important bird lakes, you can experience beautiful scenery and fascinating history, enjoy locally sourced food, see cranes dance at close range.
Enjoy the beautiful heritage landscape with passage graves, flat-topped hills, medieval churches, Gudhem’s medieval monastery ruins, Åsle Tå – Sweden’s biggest collection of crofter’s cottages in their original location, and Ekehagen Ancient Village, to mention but a few.
