Ulricehamn is known for its genuine and picturesque town center right next to Åsunden. The lake has left its mark on the urban area with peace and quiet as well as fast-paced water activities. Our other hotel, Hotel Bogesund, is located just above the lake and on their terrace and in some of their rooms you can enjoy the lovely view of the water.
Lassalyckan – a unique facility with many things to do
Lassalyckan in Ulricehamn is southern Sweden’s first official Vasalopp-center in skiing, running and mountain biking. There you can learn more about technique, equipment and diet to get more out of your training.
Lassalyckan is a municipal facility with an outstanding location and with very good training opportunities all year round. There are trails and tracks both summer and winter. Ice rinks, indoor halls, fields for American football, boules and much more. In total there are about twenty sports in one place. There is also a shed for waxing skis, newly built dressing rooms with shower, sauna and heating cabin which is for everyone to enjoy. And as the name reveals, this is where our hotel, Hotel Lassalyckan, is located.
A vibrant town all year round
Ulricehamn is a vibrant town that thrives all year round. Here is space for relaxation and lovely moments. With the change of seasons, there is also a change in town. To be able to offer top quality in tracks and slopes during wintertime this far down south is for us a huge asset. In the summer you can golf, bike, hike, paddle and much more.
The open-air swimming-bath, or Kallbadhuset, is just down the hill from our hotel and here you can take cold baths all year round. The current Kallbadhus was inaugurated in 2008 with the goal of being a place to meet and to like, where both young and old increase their health through water. The bathing facility has a women’s and men’s section with separate dressing rooms, showers and a sauna.
Biker- and hiker-friendly pathway
The old embankment, or pathway, was closed in 1991 and has since then been restored for various amusements. Here you can ride roller skis and inlines, walk or bike completely undisturbed from traffic whilst enjoying our beautiful nature. If you follow the embankment south then you have Lake Åsunden with you along the trail. In total you have 95 km of this unique pathway throughout Ulricehamn.
Ulricehamn is growing as an event town
Ulricehamn is on full speed all year round with many pleasant events. The city has become a main player for large international skiing competitions and although the town is small, events of various kinds increases. Our other hotel, Hotell Bogesund, contribute to this by arranging various events at Restaurang Sture, such as day parties, night clubs, standups, theme nights, DJs and gourmet evenings. Check out their calendar or Facebook in order not to miss out on anything!
The picturesque houses, the cobbled streets and the shops are all closeby. Well-known brands are mixed with stylish boutiques and cute shops. Through their know-how, their service and their pleasant personalities, the merchants make sure that you get what you are looking for. Many of the buildings along the pedestrian street originated in the early 18th and 19th centuries. The fact that the traditions of commerce in the countryside have been around since the Middle Ages makes it even more interesting, when old cultural environments are mixed with today’s clothes, food and interior design. Welcome to the cozy smalltown shopping!
