Lidköping is a historic maritime town and has been a trading centre for visitors since the Middle Ages. The town is characterised by tradition, handicrafts, design and fashion. The cobbled streets of the town are dotted with reminders of the town’s history of porcelain in the form of ceramic embellishments on streets and squares. Almost every quarter offers cosy cafés for a spot of inviting relaxation.
Why not visit the Rörstrand Museum, which is celebrating its 290-year anniversary this year? The museum details the history of one of Europe’s oldest porcelain factories. The collections span almost three centuries, from 1726 to the present day. You will find items ranging from showpiece ceramics to chamber pots and well-loved tableware, but also tools, sketches and a circular kiln. You may recognise cups from having coffee in summery lilac bowers, get reacquainted with grandma’s best vase or marvel at the exquisite blue and white 18th-century faience.
The former Rörstrand factory site is now home to Iittala Outlet and Design Outlet, offering several thousand square metres of wonderful designer shopping.
The Vänermuseet houses aquariums and exhibitions. It is home to exciting encounters between art and science and between humans and nature, from the past to the present. Exhibitions, talks and activities for children and adults
