Travel Tips for Växjö

IN THE CATHEDRAL....

The twin green copper SPIRES are Växjö's best known landmark.

The CATHEDRAL dates from the late 12th Century.

The church exhibits works of art in GLASS, WOOD AND WROUGHT IRON.

A VIKING rune stone from the 12th Century can be found at the cathedral's eastern wall.

Open: 9AM - 5PM

and now thinking: there is so much I haven't seen that I MUST go back there.....

Adventure pool

by Sjalen

Växjö has one of the best indoor pools in the far south of Sweden, with a bright 25 metre excersise pool with lakeside views, a diving pool and a toddlers' pool as well as an adventure area with a tunnel current, a rapid, various slides, climing frame and a generally "tropical" feel to it. There is also a cafe with snacks, sweets and burger style fast food. Sometimes the company running it offers mini breaks including a night in a Växjö hotel for the whole family. There is also a roman spa area you can book if you are a bunch of friends, and where you can pig out on a fruit buffet and then try different things such as aroma therapy, ice or honey treatments and so on with the help of your host(ess).

Bergkvara Castle ruins

by Sjalen

Very famous in Swedish history circles, it is less generally known but a nice picnic trip if a 1470s mansion in the countryside attracts your interest. The main hall is from 1780 and next to the ruined part where the rebellious Nils Dacke fought the royal army in the 16th century when this was one of the largest estates in Scandinavia with 1500 farms up and down the country belonging to it!

Vaxjo - Turn Left at IKEA

by JohnnySpangles

Vaxjo isn’t even in the middle of nowhere. It is in fact about 200 miles below the Middle of Nowhere which is just above the Pit of Despair. However that still makes it difficult to find. It’s even difficult to find on the internet unless you’ve entered its name using all those weird Swedish dots above the letters. Anyway if you thought that it was difficult finding this page about Vaxjo, try finding it by car headlights in the middle of the night whist keeping one eye out for the next moose that’s going to take a suicidal leap in front of your car.

The Swedes are supposed to be the happiest race in the world, closely followed by the Danes. I’m not quite sure what the Swedes have got to be happy about. Sweden doesn’t appear to have any daylight for fifty-one weeks of the year, you can’t buy any Action Man toys and their road-signs use ciphers and symbols that would be more at home in the Da Vinci Code. At least the Danes have Carlsberg to keep them happy, probably. Perhaps the Swedes are happy because they understand all the furniture names at IKEA, and whilst we can only guess that ‘Brylldrp’ means ‘damned fine coffee table’ they know it actually means ‘dog-poo’. Maybe it’s all one elaborate Scandinavian joke to get us buying rude words, perhaps the government thought it up to keep them jolly since Abba split up.

Vaxjo, which translates into IKEA as ‘no chance of finding it, no way Jose’, certainly tested my sense of humour as I bumped from moose to moose on a moonlit Swedish highway. I did eventually find it before the sun came up (and went down ten minutes later). I was in Vaxjo for a drunken Saturday night and on the Sunday morning I awoke to find it closed. It pretty much stayed closed for most of the day. You see instead of opening their shops up to eager consumers that are champing at the bit to waste their Sunday in yet another spending-frenzy they keep them closed for most of the day and insist that their population stay at home with their families and practice building flat-pack coffee tables.

As the rest of us spend most of our Sundays swearing at flat-pack coffee tables, before stabbing them with our screwdrivers and throwing the Allan keys at the cat, I can understand why their nation walks around with a smug grin on its face.

IN AND AROUND VäXJö......

by eden_teuling

" TELEBORGS SLOTT.......AND SO MUCH MORE..."

Teleborgs slott in Växjö and bad luck: they were closed on Tuesdays....what else could we do than continue our trip along sunny roads, meadows with yellow buttercups and......with the sun to cheer us up!!

So on we went....ON AND ON...

Constantly surprised by all we saw...

" BRäKNE-HOBY KYRKA....."

BUILT BETWEEN 1869 - 1872

Here you see part of the interior of the church: serene atmosphere, fine soft colours and a musician who was studying at the organ (probably the songs/psalms for next Sunday!) and a sacristan who noiselessly moved about....

" BRäKNE-HOBY KYRKA...."

Here the exterior of the church where, like in all other places we visited, the graves all are around the church, well looked after ....

The gardener was working too as were some housewives, busy with watering cans and gardening tools..

Again: the day was beautiful.

I don't know why the Weathergods favoured me all those weeks.....

" SOMEWHERE IN SWEDEN, BUT WHERE WAS IT??"

Somewhere in the busy, crowded streets of VäXJö.....
With much pleasure....we joined them all for a while......indefatigable!

And there was good reason to feel happy: SUN AND WARMTH FOR A WHOLE MONTH AND NOT ONE DROP OF RAIN!!!

" PLACE FOR A PICNIC LUNCH....."

Loving the Swedish ingredients for a lovely lunch we enjoyed it all at ease and ...we even closed our eyes for some time, just to listen to the many, many sounds.

Only with your eyes closed you can hear the numerous sounds nature surrounds us with......

Delightful!

" I NEED A MAP TO KNOW WHEREVER THIS WAS..."

must have been a place for a well-deserved rest, some hot chocolate or teat, or both .....

Quiet August afternoon...

Where would everybody be, I wonder, feeling like an intruder walking silently through the narrow streets with cobble-stones.....

" FIRST A PIZZA........."

then we can put up the tent (10 minutes!) and do what we have to do although....it is already 10PM and it won't be late before we shall crawl in!!

The mosquitoes force us to flee into the tent, close all zips and have tea there....

" GLASS BLOWER AT WORK......."

In between VäXJö and NYBRO somewhat east of Växjö there you can see how the famous glass is created and I can recommend a visit to the glassworks : it is amazing to see these artists working without being disturbed by the lookers-on......

They sell their famous and excellent products/works of art and there are many shop where you can buy the most splendid vases and bowls, lamps and trays.....

A wonderful "mitbringsel" (souvenir) for those who couldn't join you on your "GRANDE TOUR"......
