The neoclassical railway station at Eskilstuna was opened by King Oscar II in 1877. Thankfully it has been modernised somewhat since then. The station faces north towards the city centre, just a few hundred yards away. If you arrange to pick up a hire car here you'll find it's a convenient spot for exploring Eskilstuna. Much of the old town is arranged in a grid plan and if you cross to the east bank of the river you'll find the NR53 that can whisk you up to the E20 east-west highway quickly.
With a hire car it's easy to explore Eskilstuna from the railway station. Head for the old part, Gamla Stan. You'll find on cobbled riverside streets and typically Swedish wooden houses. Klosters Church is a fascinating historic landmark, as well as the next door iron statue, commemorating the town's blacksmith history. Other highlights include Parken Zoo, with a theme park inside, and Munktellmuseét and Factori industrial museums. Eskilstuna stands on the River Eskilstunaan, which runs between two large lakes and much of the surrounding landscape is dominated by stretches of water. Despite the industrial heritage here the scenery is still picturesque.

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.
