Jönköping & Gränna
At the southern tip of Lake Vättern lie Jönköping and Huskvarna – two cities that have become one. The unique beach promenade Vätterstranden next to Vättern’s clean and clear waters makes Jönköping a real pearl worth seeing. And there are plenty of lakes – together with Rocksjön and Munksjön, a proximity to water is created everywhere in Jönköping. Here you will also find a rich restaurant life with food inspired from all corners of the world.
Gränna is an old idyll beautifully situated on the edge of Lake Vättern. The picturesque community with cobbled streets and old wooden houses is world-renowned for its artisanal polka pigs and is for many a real treat in Sweden. Here you will find the polar explorer André’s museum, cozy cafes, shops and lovely bathing spots. In Gränna you will also find the ferry to Visingsö – a historic place, also worth a visit.
A pearl that, thanks to Lake Vättern, has a unique location in Sweden. Don’t miss visiting both the Pier and Vätterstranden.
Huskvarna was once its own town but today belongs to Jönköping. Here you will find the famous sculpture Jätten Vist.
In the summer, Gränna’s cobbled streets are full of visitors. A real donut place according to many.
Visingsö is a historic place where you can visit both the castle ruins and the church, go rope-sledding and visit alpacas.
