Östgötaleden – Borensberg - Berg (the Birgitta trail)

This part of Östgötaleden follows the pedestrian and bicycle paths from Borensberg to Berg. Along the trail you can see both a fine cultural environment and a fine natural environment. At Näs there is a very nice oak hill with ancient remains. One also passes the fine Brunneby church, which was built at the end of the 13th century. Furthermore, a very beautiful deciduous forest is located next to the trail, at Ruda, where many red-listed species live.
The Birgitta Trail is a pilgrimage route that connects parts of St. Birgitta's life, past and present. On the Birgitta trail, you are welcome to hike or cycle on easily accessible roads. There are good accommodation options (including five STF hostels, many hotels and guest houses) and access to shops and restaurants. The Birgitta trail is not marked in the terrain, but coincides on certain parts with the Östgötaleden trail. More information about the trail, maps and directions can be found on the Pilgrim Center's website.

On Naturkartan, the Birgitta trail is divided into four sections. The distance between Vreta Kloster and Borensberg is 22 km.
