“Way more fun than another museum”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile


We had the most perfect day at the harness races at Solvalla. Free entry, a good lunch, fun pony racing as well as the usual Standardbreds. If you are lucky enough to be there on a race day,and you just can't bear one more museum, this is a splendid place for a change of pace. ( Pun intended.) Website is all in Swedish so it helps if you can read a little. We had to walk perhaps half a kilometer from the bus stop.

“Elitloppet 2014”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Another great Elitloppet (of course +27 C and sunshine helped a bit). Great atmosphere, great sport and Swedish hospitality. The only slight downside is the necessary queueing for food and drinks but that is pretty much unavoidable with 30 000 people.

“Horse-racing every Wednesday”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Solvalla is Sweden’s biggest harness-racing track, with about 80 race-days per year. Wednesdays are a bit quieter, still good quality racing though. Saturday races are bigger, and more fun, especially in summer. You can choose from several cafes and restaurants (indoor & outdoor), or just enjoy the atmosphere sitting on the grass enjoying a hot dog while watching the horses compete. Bringing your own drinks is not allowed! Getting there is somewhat complicated, but worth the trouble. You can either take a local train to Rissne or Sundbyberg, and then walk for about a mile. There are sometimes buses that go there from train stations, those can be checked from the Solvalla webpage.
We had an exciting Saturday afternoon at Solvalla with a bit of food, drink and betting too. Warmly recommended.
