It is no coincidence that Motala is referred to as Östergötland’s lakeside city, or for that matter, the capital of the Göta Canal. Wherever you find yourself in Motala, you are never more than five minutes away from a natural water source and always close to activities and experiences which are water related. But there are many things to enjoy other than sunbathing, sailing, fishing, windsurfing, building sandcastles or jogging along kilometre long beaches.
There are many good excellent excursion destinations in all parts areas of the municipality. Here, we combine the best of Östergötland’s nature and culture, and all the advantages of the lakeside city ... including Lake Vättern’s clear, clean water!
In Motala there is plenty of room for spontaneity and choice. With us it is easy to enjoy and appreciate open-air recreation, unique nature and the lakeside city feeling throughout the year. Activities abound here with many choices of things to do for everyone. Numerous cycle routes and walking trails provide active and nature related experiences for visitors. Other examples of activities include museum visits and fishing.
