Kronobergs Län Things to Do

  • Kosta Glassworks

    Kosta is perhaps the most famous of the Swedish glassworks, with nearby Orrefors not far behind. Kosta is also the oldest and you can read more on my page about it. Here, you will find an exhibition on famous Kosta products as well as the furnace itself where you can even have a go at glassblowing yourself on certain dates but check the website to...

  • Kronoberg Castle

    An old bishops' seat, this later became a castle for the famous king Vasa like so many others in the country. 1542-43 were the most dramatic years in its history when the local son Nils Dacke rebelled against the king, using the castle which was subsequently reinforced to withstand further sackings both by his followers and the Danes. Today, there...

  • Lessebo Hand Paper Mill

    With all the forest around, of course there has to be a paper mill. The mill was founded in the 17th century and still today produces fine paper. Strindberg is said to have written most of his plays on Lessebo paper and if you want to see how it is made, there are guided tours from mid June to mid August although its open all year round and it is...

  • Kyrkö Car cemetery

    In a small croft outside Ryd in Småland, Åke Danielsson lived and worked the nearby peat moors. He also had an interest in cars and people came to him asking if they could scrap their car in his yard and he could then take what he wanted of spare parts he could salvage. Sometimes. Åke also repaired cars for people. This took more and more of his...

  • Linnaeus' birth place

    Those of you who know your biology might be fascinated to learn that the man who categorised plants into families in the 18th century was from the tiny village of Råshult north of Älmhult. Today, you would think it far too forested for many flowers but in his days there wasn't the amount of spruce you see here today. He is known as Carl von Linné...

  • Växjö Cathedral

    The county cathedral with its distinctive twin towers which can be seen from miles around (where there is no forest...). They are quite a modern addition, however, but the cathedral has been here for centuries and is linked to a legend with an English saint. See my Växjö page for more information. It is a nice cathedral with a beautiful organ.

  • Huseby Mansion

    Kronoberg's most visited sight. Here you find a classic Swedish mansion which used to belong to the Stephens family who collected all sorts on their travels. There are guided tours around the lovely house and you can also visit the old style shop, the farm labourer's museum, the mill and many other things as well as eat in the restaurant in the...

  • Emigrant House / Utvandrarnas Hus

    The Emigrant House was founded in the 60s as a place for Americans with Swedish ancestors to seek their roots. The upstairs research library can help all you US and Canadian Swansons and Andersons out there! Apart from that, it is interesting for the rest of us too since the exhibition on the ground floor tells you everything on why people left...

  • Åkerby emigrant memorial

    At Åkerby junction, there is a memorial stone to all those who left this part of Sweden in search of a better life across the Atlantic. Many gathered here on their way to the harbours in Kalmar, Karlskrona and Karlshamn for further transport to Göteborg and then maybe Liverpool or Southampton if they had got tickets for the great transatlantic...

  • National Glass Museum / Smålands Museum

    Of course the national glass museum has to be in the Kingdom of Glass. See exhibits by famous Swedish glass blowers through history, then buy something nice in the shop. The museum also houses one of the trendier cafés in Växjö.

  • Elk (moose) visit

    The forestry in Kronoberg creates ideal habitat for elks (Scandinavian moose) since they love cut down forests which become peat bog- like and full of nice plants and water filled holes when the machines have gone. You might spot them just about anywhere in the forest too if you go for a walk and stay fairly quiet. Normally, they are not dangerous...
