About Åsgården

You will find us in Lyrestad at Göta Canal, where the E20 crosses the canal.
Eivor and Björn welcome you to Åsgården.
For more information, see our website!

Åsgården is a small hotel with seven pleasant rooms.
All of the rooms have their own shower and toilet. True feeling of homeliness, personal service and home-made food. Calm and relaxing environment.

From here you can choose to cycle in either direction alongside the canal and so be able to experience not less than 19 locks within 7 km from Lyrestad. Why not combine cycling with a boat trip or with an outing by car?

Åsgården is fully licensed.
