Jönköping is beautifully situated along the southern shore of Vättern. Here you can enjoy a vibrant city, beach life and nature experiences. The city center consists of cozy alleys and canals that opens up to three lakes. In the old mill community Huskvarna, east of Jönköping, there is a wealth of cultural treasures to discover.

Jönköping with its international university and almost 140,000 inhabitants is full of life all year round.  The interest for food is great in the city and here you will find a variety of restaurants and cafés with different directions. For nature lovers and botanists, the region is a paradise with nature reserves, lovely views and one of Sweden’s largest oak forests. If you are looking for hiking trails and charming country roads, this is where you will find it.

Jönköping is a city where both nature life and city life are just around the corner.
