Welcome to Lake Hornborga 

Lake Hornborga is situated in the ancient countryside in the tableland of Västergötland. A host of ancient monuments and stone walls bear witness to the activities of generations past.

Famed as a bird lake, ravaged by countless attempts to lower the level of the water, Lake Hornborga was revived by an extensive and unique restoration programme. A paradise for resting and breeding wetland birds. Every year, the lively dance steps of the resting cranes attract huge crowds of spectators.

At Lake Hornborga, there are two information centres (naturum Hornborgasjön and Trandansen), walking tracks, bird towers, hide-outs, the cafeteria and grazing native breeds.

Lake Hornborga is managed by the County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland.
