Games are making an impact on the city

Skövde has many of the same amenities as a big city, with the small town’s proximity to everything. Here several successful game companies, a university with first-class education and outdoor activities beyond the ordinary can be found. Next to the city center of Skövde, that offers a wide range of shops, is the mountain of Billingen. There, you can enjoy ski trails, fishing lakes, outdoor swimming, a slalom slope and much more. 

For Skövde, which is historically known for its car manufacturing and military presence, a great development has taken place in recent years. The city is becoming more and more recognized for its work in computer games development, and the unique collaboration within Sweden Game Arena.
