Jönköping General Information
As a base to explore the gorgeous Vättern lake area, Jönköping is a superb city in Sweden. Home to 85,000 people, Jönköping is the heart of a county with more than 330,000 people. As a result, the handsome city is a vital commercial, cultural and economic dynamo in the country.
Jönköping has one of the most peculiar claims to fame of any city in Sweden, or for that matter, Europe. The city was the foremost hub of the international matchstick industry for more than a century, thanks to the intrepid and inventive fraternal duo of Johan Edvard and Carl Frans Lundström. The story of how Jönköping rose to global matchstick dominance is deftly told with humour and aplomp at the local Tändsticksmuseet. Beyond the city’s most famous export however, a slew of superb points of interest await. Some of the best include the Fågelmuseet (Ornithilogical Museum) and Viktor Rydbergmuseet, which commemorates the extraordinary life and works of native son poet, writer and philosopher, Viktor Rydberg. Come summer, Lake Vättern Beach is a popular Jönköping hot spot and come winter, HV71 Jönköping lures hockey fans to Kinnarps Arena. The city also has a solid ensemble of restaurants, cafés and bars.
