naturum Hornborgasjön

The information centre known as naturum Hornborgasjön stands on pillars in the lake ta Fågeludden, situated at the north east side. It was opened in 1986, but got a whole new shape in 2015 when the inside was fully rebuilt.

It is situated on the eastern side of the lake, where the Billingen table mountain rises out of the water and forms the backdrop. The surrounding countryside with its many old stone walls bears witness to its ancient traditions and, in mid-May, the cherry trees fill the hills with white blossom.

Naturum Hornborgasjön contains a visual exhibition about the history of the lake and its bird life, a viewing tower with a lift and a souvenir shop. There are knowledgeable guides more than happy to help you find new places or tell you everything you´ll wanna know about the lake.  

If you follow the foot-bridge out to Fågeludden, you pass two hide-outs. If you are quiet and have a little patience, you can watch birds at very close quarters.

Fågeludden is one of the very best places at the lake to watch birds. You can see grebe, ducks, coots, wading birds and Sweden's largest colony of black-headed gulls.

In 2017 a new building, Doppingen (the Grebe), with café and auditorium was built.
