where two worlds meet
In Töreboda, two worlds meet. Here the trains whiz by on the main line between Stockholm and Gothenburg, and here boats pass at 5 knots on the Göta Canal. The canal divides the city into an eastern and a western part which are connected by several bridges. In addition, here is Sweden's smallest regular ferry, Lina, which transports passengers between the two parts of the city.
During the summer it is easy to enjoy canal life in Töreboda. There are both cafes and restaurants here, and the guest harbor is full speed as a couple of thousand boats and several passenger boats pass each year. If you want a quieter experience, you can go a little outside the central town, to Tåtorp, Jonsboda or Hajstorp, which are all true canal idylls.
