facilities within walking distance, or a town with both beautiful nature at its doorstep and
the major cities of Scandinavia within easy reach, then rebro is the place for you.

towns and some of Sweden's largest lakes.

there is plenty of opportunity to do so in one of the town's many coffee shops.
rebro boasts a varied nightlife with a rich selection of pubs, clubs and bars. Whether
you like to go for a drink, enjoy some live music or hit the dance floor, you will not be
short of places for an evening out on the town.
