    Visingsö is a peaceful little island in the middle of Lake Vättern, only 30 km away from Jönköping. You can find tiny villages, old churches, beautiful fields, forests and of course beaches on the island. The best way to get around Visingsö is to rent a bike right at the harbour.

    Eksjö Things to Do

    In addition to simply strolling through Eksjö’s old town, taking thousands of photos and eating cake, the city has several museums and old merchants’ and early manufacturers’ houses to visit. That’s something I found fascinating in Sweden anyhow (it is not limited to Eksjö, I saw it also in Sigtuna and at the west coast): whole houses with the...

  • Skurugata Canyon, blue markings at trees

    Eksjö Sports & Outdoors

    The circular trail in Skurugata is well marked. Only remember to follow the blue marking on the trees. I have decided to walk past the information board from the parking lot, which is leading to the south(east), with blue and orange markings. But then this was also the path further on into Klinten Natural Reserve. Only at the crossing I realised...

    Visit the Andrée Museum while in Gränna! It details the S.A. Andrée Polar Expedition which went wrong.

    A church from the eleventh century. There are interesting paintings on the walls inside it, people said to me, but since it's open for visitors only in the summer, I never saw them.

    Tranås Transportation

    Transportation to and from Tranås is very good as it is on the main line between Stockholm and Copenhagen. Nontheless, the fast X2000 trains do not stop in Tranås very often, so you often have to take local trains to connect. If you miss your connection, however, the SJ railroad will arrange for a taxi. How many railroads do this? Well done in my...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's not that you'd be killed if you approached the town in any other way but this IS a railway town. The Stockholm to Copenhagen mainline comes through town and so does the Göteborg inland line via Jönköping that ends here so that you can change trains to go north or south. There are also local lines to Eksjö-Hultsfred and to Vetlanda.
