Don't be fooled by the airport's name, Stockholm Västerås is more than 60 miles from the Swedish capital. It's only three miles west of the city of Västerås though. Beware that sometimes locals call it Hässlö Airport. Whatever it's called, the airfield has a substantial single runway capable of handling international flights. There's a well-equipped modern terminal and various parking options. If you hire a car at Västerås Airport you'll find the road links are good. The E18 highway isn't far from the end of the runway. Head west and you'll be in Västerås in a few minutes. Sadly if you head east it will take well over an hour to get to Stockholm.
Stockholm's fabulous attractions may be a day-trip away but this Lake District has its attractions too. Västerås stands at the mouth of the River Svartån on the north-western shores of Lake Mälaren. It's a lively university city with a harbour and busy waterfront. For the best vantage point, the Skrapan gives you chance to see the city from up high which was amongst the first of the skyscrapers in the city. Or, for a more scenic view, the Kokpunkten Waterpark is indoor for the most part, but with views over the local marina in one of the pools. Further afield the highlights of this Västmanland region include the World Heritage site at the old Engelsberg Ironworks and the wild and exciting woods of the Färnebofjärden National Park.

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.
