There is lots to do in and around Gränna – Vättern. Find your favourite sights here.

Discover the historic fairy-tale island in the middle of Lake Vättern

According to legend, Visingsö Island was created when Vist the Giant threw a tuft of grass into Lake Vättern to give his lady something to step on. And just like it did a thousand years ago, the tuft is still buzzing with life today! Enjoy ancient relics, beautiful nature, art, and much more!

Discover Gränna from new perspectives

Strolling down cobbled streets among picturesque wooden houses, inhaling the scent of peppermint from Gränna’s many candy cane shops is hard to beat, but this town has, in fact, so much more to offer. This place is surrounded by beautiful nature reserves full of life, and when moving around in the deep and magical forests, it’s easy to see why John Bauer found much of his fairy-tale inspiration right here.

Peppermint candy canes in Gränna

Gränna is, after all, home to the peppermint candy cane, so a stroll along the candy cane streets is a must! You will find every flavour combination imaginable to bring with you home. And why not visit one of the candy cane makers to see the production process live?
