Gränna & VisingsöThe guide was updated:
enchanting views, manor houses, cobbled roads, bicycle rides, idyllic
wooden cabins, castle ruins, paths and oak forests. Gränna was
founded by Count Per Brahe the Younger in 1652. At Grenna museum, you can learn about S.A. Andrée’s adventurous balloon voyage over the North Pole. The three-man expedition party departed from Svalbard on 11 July 1897. The sweetest thing in Gränna is definitely its mint rock. The authentic mint rock is red and white but today it comes in infinite flavours.
The island of Visingsö is just a 30-minute boat ride away. Ideal for a
daytrip. It includers attraqctions like the ruined Näs Castle, Sweden’s first
royal residence. You can also hike or take a special horse-drawn carriage (known as a remmalag) and enjoy a bicycle ride around the island.
