Karlsborg, Zinkgruvan, Jakobshyttan, Laxå
During some more days in April, I will be spending on traveling around the Närke region, visiting both places related to trains and nature.
First, a short stop at Tiveden natural reserve
Tiveden is a popular place among tourists from Germany and the Netherlands.
Not far from Tiveden is Karlsborg

Zinkgruvan is located near the railway Hallsberg-Mjölby
The village is famous for its mining industry started by the Belgian company Vieille Montagne in 1857, hence the name Zinkgruvan (literally "the zinc mine" in English). Zinkgruvan was founded around the mine in the 1860s, and the history of the village is closely tied to the history of the mine. The people living in Zinkgruvan are mostly mine workers. (Wikipedia)
