Borgholm is on the Swedish island of Öland, off the southeast coast of Sweden and connected to the mainland by the Öland Bridge which passes through Kalmar on the other side. Hire a car in Borgholm and you can explore the island in its entirety, as well as crossing to southeast Sweden and enjoying the delights of the mainland.
Borgholm is best known for its castle, which is sadly now mostly in ruins. Originally built in the 12th century, in its current 17th-century addition you'll find a museum filled with fascinating facts about the history of the city and its inhabitants.
Öland is also well-known for its golf courses which allow players of all abilities to test their skills on some beautiful parkland in professional-level facilities. The Ekerum Golfklubb is easily reachable when you hire a car in Borgholm - just follow the 136 road around the island to find this great spot on the coast.
Such is the agreeable climate during summer that the Swedish royal family has their own place to stay near Borgholm in the summer months, Solliden Palace, boosting the tourism for the island's popular summer resorts by providing lush landscaped gardens to enjoy walking around.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
