Naturum and Café doppingen

On the east side of Lake Hornborga you will find Fågeludden. You will find both Naturum Hornborgasjön Hornborga and Café Doppingen here. Several hiking trails also start from Fågeludden. Naturum Hornborgasjön and Café Doppingen are usually open between March and October.

Find your way here

Fågeludden is located just outside the town of Broddetorp, about 10 km south of Varnhem. From here, it is equally close to the three nearest cities Skara, Falköping and Skövde. Only about 20 km.

When you approach Broddetorp, it is signposted towards Naturum Hornborgasjön Hornborga. Brown road signs with the text Hornborga will lead you here. 

Take the train and the bus

The bus stop closest to the Naturum Hornborgasjön is called Bolum (Falköping) and from it you can get through 1.6 kilometres of gravel road between the fields down to the lake.

The bus runs quite rarely and sometimes you will need to phone in advance and request a bus to travel the route. The bus stop is reached by Line 313 from either Falköping or Varnhem.

Many trains run daily to Skövde and Falköping, from both Gothenburg and Stockholm. The last part of the trip to Lake Hornborga can be done by a rental car or local bus.


At Fågeludden you can visit both Naturum Hornborgasjön and Café Doppingen. At Naturum Hornborgasjön there is always the opportunity to learn something new. If you are hungry, Café Doppingen offers both good coffee and cake, as well as full lunches.

Whatever the time of year, great experiences in nature await you here. Among other things, you can look in in our bird sanctuaries and see bird life at close range. From Fågeludden there are also several hiking trails.
