Alingsås is a small town in western Sweden, located on the banks of the Göta Älv river. The town is known for its paper mills, which were established in the early 1800s. The mills were a major employer in the town, and the town’s economy is still heavily reliant on them. The town is also known for its annual Alingsås Regatta, a rowing competition that has been held since the late 1800s. The town is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its location on the river and its many historical buildings.
