Östergötland/Sweden

Introducing Östergötland

Östergötland harbours gems on both sides of the Göta Canal, which threads diagonally across the region. Along its banks, the region’s main towns are mostly 19th-century industrial heartlands, laced with some impressive postindustrial conversions. The region’s west, bordered by the mighty lake Vättern, is a treat of flat, lush countryside steeped in ancient history. This is where you’ll find Sweden’s rune-stone superstar and the unmissable medieval town of Vadstena.
