S / S Ejdern was built in 1880 at Gothenburg's mechanical workshop to go in coastal traffic in the Gothenburg archipelago and was launched on 14 May the same year. Between the years 1898 and 1906, Ejdern trafficked the waters around Lake Roxen to eventually end up in Södertälje.
And today she is the World's Oldest Propeller Powered Coal Fired Steamship with Original Machine still in operation .. More about the ship and the association.

In collaboration with Stallarholmen's network, we will present a number of trips during July and August
Kaggeholm Castle is located on Helgö, an hour's drive from Södertälje. There you can go and have coffee, eat well or maybe have your wedding party. We plan to start going there after midsummer.
During the summer, Södertälje municipality offers a number of swimming trips to Farstanäs. Keep your fingers crossed that the corona restrictions have eased so we can load the boat full this year.
