  Sorby Fornborg

Favorite thing:
Sorby Fornborg is an ancient fortification 1,6 kilometres of Rytterne Church on the old country road towards Västerås. This is the same road as Fiholm Castle is on.
The fortification is big, measuring 100x90 metres. But you need some imagination to see an old fort in it! It is more that you have to feel the history here than actually seeing anything. Sorby Fornborg is nothing more than a hill with a lot of big boulders. Some parts do look like a little wall, but others are just boulders spread around on the hill. It's a nice stop when you are driving this road, but not a place to make a big detour for.
