Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Jönköping

Jönköping is a county in southern Sweden. It shares its name with its largest city and capital, Jönköping. If you are going to find any hostels in this region, then the capital is your best bet. Otherwise, your chances are way higher in finding a hotel or motel rather than a hostel. For those travelers who are on a budget, it would be best to look for lodgings right off the freeway. These roadside hotels offer basic accommodations for prices competitive to those of hostels.

If you are staying in a hostel or other type of lodging in or around the capital in Jönköping, then there are several fun activities to add to your itinerary. For a one of a kind experience, go visit the Tändsticksmuseet, or Match Museum. Here you get to see the first building where matches were made in Jönköping, along with the individuals and machines that helped set this industry into motion. A film tells the story behind the match and you will be given the opportunity to assemble matches as was once the job of children in the factory. There are thousands of different match boxes and labels to look at. Just check on the website because the museum closes early on some days.

For the travelers with energetic children or a love of fresh air, you might wish to add Stadsparken to your itinerary. In this park, everyone- kids and adults alike- can revel in the magic of outdoor fun. Play a round of mini golf, get lost in a labyrinth, pet some cute animals, watch a soccer match in the stadium, feed feathered friends in the bird museum, or just enjoy the fresh air as well as the gorgeous view over the city and lake.

For the religious-minded and architecture aficionados, there are several churches to add to your list of sights to behold. The Habo Kyrka, or Habo Church, might be unimpressive from the outside, but the inside will have you mesmerized. Built in 1680, the interior is a wooden work of art of finely carved and painted masterpieces.

For a completely different type of beauty, visit Sofia Kyrkan, or Sofia Church. Located in the city’s center, this church’s best features include the colorful glass window art as well as the mass that is accompanied by a heavenly sounding choir and orchestra.

Once your sightseeing activities have come to an end, there are many restaurants around the city center where you can refuel before heading back to your hostel in anticipation for the next day.
