Services and Locations


Herräng Dance Camp is very much organised and performed within two main areas located some 300 metres apart from each other: the Folkets Hus Area and the School Area. Both of them are very much in the centre of all aspects of what the camp represents.

The Folkets Hus Area holds three different dance floors – the Ballroom, the Dansbanan and the Library – and is open more or less around the clock, offering daytime classes and all evening- and night-time festivities. The area also holds a handful of the important infrastructure for the event, including most of the event's administration and side-services plus some private accommodation alternatives.

The Reception is the centre for all general contact between students and the camp administration, but is also the place to visit in case of problems and emergencies. In short words: our Reception has generous opening hours, and is the place where all kind of questions, comments, complaints et cetera should be addressed to.

The Airport Shuttle administration, located inside the Reception, offers reliable transportation service primarily from and to Arlanda Airport. Bookings should preferably be made in advance through your personal My Herräng account to secure a seat on one of our rides.
The Accommodation Office technically hosts all administrative personnel linked to General Accommodation, Private Accommodation as well as Camping Accommodation (tents and caravans). The office is in charge of all matters – keys, maps, payments et cetera – concerning bookings for different accommodation alternatives. The facility is located in Front of Folkets Hus and is in operation on a daily basis at fairly generous hours. Please note that the Accommodation Office occasionally moves out of the physical building to provide their services in the areas where the actual accommodation is instead, especially on check-in days.

The Woodside is a fairly new building which also holds the staff coordination office and the massage therapists, but also offers private accommodation in the hostel part of the facility. Located next to Folkets Hus and clearly visible from its imposing two-story construction.
Café Blue Moon was one of the first small side-services that started to open up in Herräng in the early 1990s. It has been providing an endless assortment of café-related products and small food alternatives ever since, and will also offer breakfasts and lunches this year.

Bar Bedlam was established somewhere in the mid-1990s, and has been one of the main alternatives for drinks and food inside Folkets Hus ever since. Opens around the time of lunch and closes later than late.
Café Blue Moon
The Lindy Hop Shop, including a tiny café, has over the years grown into a full-scale service providing clothes, accessories and all kinds of products in the line of jazz, swing and general retro. Cash and card payments are accepted in the Lindy Hop Shop, but no cash service from cards is provided. For further information concerning potential sellers, please visit Lindy Hop Shop.
The Bike Rental started out some twenty-five years ago with a handful of questionable lost-and-found bicycles. Today, the little service holds around 400 bicycles for rent, and offers both maintenance and other services in general. It is possible to book a bicycle in advance through the My Herräng system.
The Entrance Gate and the Reception represents one unit located at the beginning of Folketshusvägen, some 100 metres in front of Folkets Hus. The Entrance Gate is manned from around 19.00 every evening until late at night. This is where camp passports are checked and possible entrance fees are paid.

The Tool Box is connected with the general workshop/carpentry of the camp, and holds our collection of tools and general hardware. The area doesn't have any general public access, but at the same time it is a service institution for both internal and external problems of a practical nature.
Our sightseeing boats are anchored about 100 metres west and behind Folkets Hus, and offer the possibility to escape at any time from all steps and all music. They are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week and no pre-booking is required.
The Lake

The School Area holds the majority of our daytime dance floors, a handful of the camp's general side-services and is also open for different evening crash courses. The area often closes at around 23.00 and becomes a fairly silent and sleepy part of Herräng, holding a serious amount of beds in connection to general accommodation and the School Area Camping Ground.
The Ice Cream Parlor – often shortened to ICP – is a combination of ice cream parlour, café, lunch and light dinner alternative, as well as a health-inspired small kitchen in general. The ICP opens early, but closes well before dusk.

The Kitchen was established by the first Russians coming to Herräng in the early 2000s. Nowadays an international kitchen area, open for anyone interested to cook and prepare meals privately.
Manned laundry service open every day from 12.00 until 20.00. The delivery time is normally within 24 hours and the prices are reasonable and based on weight.

One of many possible places where a decent shower is provided, but the only place where anyone can enjoy a traditional Swedish sauna.

In addition to the Folkets Hus Area and the School Area, the village itself offers a handful of small services and attractions which blends into and supports the event's general line of infrastructure during the camp period.

Herräng's only grocery store is located in the very centre of the village itself. Cash as well as cards are accepted, but please note that the store does not provide a cash-back service unless you have a Swedish bank account/card. Also, U.S. VISA cards need to have a chip, not only a magnetic strip.
The Kiosk is a combination of a traditional Swedish newsstand and a small hamburger bar.

In addition to the camp's official alternatives, different independent entrepreneurs might very well offer food from different food trucks. The supply often includes Thai alternatives, Swedish moose burgers, fish and chips et cetera.
Besides being a traditional marina, the Marina also offers a full-service restaurant, a small kiosk and some 40 beds included in our general accommodation programme. If the Red Sauna starts to feel a bit too busy for you, there is also a sauna here that you can book privately with your friends.
Herräng offers a small open sea beach facing the archipelago. The water temperature in Sweden can possibly be challenging for visitors from the warmer meridians ...
