Skating track on Lake Mälaren

Västeråsfjärden, Västerås Show on map

During the winter months, you can ice skate on the prepared track on the frozen Lake Mälaren. The track is about 10 km long and 12 m wide and stretches from Lillåudden, past Öster Mälarstrand, to Södra Björnö.

The track is prepared by volunteers with the aim of creating an outdoor adventure for residents of the city and visitors alike.


  • There are cracks in the ice in many places so it is important to pay attention and exercise caution at all times.
  • The ice under Björnö Bridge is unsafe, so never skate below it.
  • Always exercise caution when you are out on the ice.
  • Never skate alone and always ensure that you have ice-prods with you.
