The ruins of Kronoberg Castle

The greenest city in Europe

There is no such thing as too much green! Book flights to Växjö and discover a lively student town surrounded by lakes, parks and forests. Even the city centre offers some lovely spots with great views of the water. Blessed with beautiful nature and residents who champion a sustainable lifestyle, it’s easy to see why Växjö is known as the greenest city in Europe. The compact city of Växjö is best explored on foot: take a short stroll from the shops in Storgatan to the 12th-century cathedral and the Småland Museum with its displays of silver treasures from the Viking days.

Swedish icons

Nestled in the heart of the province of Småland, Växjö is the birthplace of several Swedish icons. Furniture giant IKEA was founded in the small town of Älmhult, where you can visit the IKEA Museum, housed in the chain’s very first store. Children’s books author Astrid Lindgren also grew up in Småland. Visit Astrid Lindgren’s World where fans of all ages come eye to eye with Pippi Longstocking, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter and other beloved characters. Looking for a one of a kind souvenir? A trip to ‘Glasriket’ (the Kingdom of Crystal) will yield many gems: this region has been known for hundreds of years for its traditional glass art. Växjö is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Sweden. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Växjö now!

Safari through the forest

Calling all nature lovers: the region around Växjö is heaven for fans who love outdoor activities. How about an afternoon of fishing on Lake Åsnen, or a bike ride to the ruins of the medieval Kronoberg Castle? Relax on the patio of Café Ryttmästaregården over a coffee and homemade waffles, and admire the great view of the ruins on Lake Helgasjön. Families will love the Markaryds Moose Safari: on this ‘safari’ through the Scandinavian forest you will not only see the impressive moose, but you will even get to feed them! Looking for more active pursuits? The Little Rock Lake Zipline just north of Växjö is one of the longest in Europe. Daredevils, get ready for a high-speed ride over the Småland forests!
