Allotment sites are worth a visit. Here some examples.
The Swedish Allotment Gardens
Älvtomta koloniförening in Örebro
Älvtomta Allotment Association celebrated their 100th Anniversary in 2017. The 164 allotments display a wonderful variation of gardens and cottages. A walk through the area offers a lot of things to enjoy and discover. The members are engaged in a number of projects such as a small allotment museum, taking inventory of and maintaining older varieties of perennials and a cooperation with a home for elderly people in the neighborhood. The Association have achieved a bronze level in the Swedish Allotment Federation's Environment Programme. Please contact the association before visiting, as the area is not always open to the public.

Fårölottens koloniträdgårdsförening in Piteå
Fårölottens allotment association is one of the most northern members in the Swedish Allotment Federation. It is an association with wellkept allotments where the members express their joy in gardening despite the shorter season this far north. But the fact that the sun is up almost around the clock during the summer helps. An extra plus for the members is the sauna and the barbecue spot by the water.
adress: Vägen Västerut, 941 65 Piteå
location: In Piteå, follow the road Fårövägen out to the island of Fårö. Take left on the road Vägen Västerut and you will find the allotment area on your left, close to the water.
The Långholmens allotments in Stockholm
Långholmen allotment gardens are beautifully situated on the island Långholmen right in the center of Stockholm. The association consists of a mix of allotments with and without cottages.
