Welcome to Jönköping-Huskvarna
Museum buffs will love it here – the city has plenty of quirky exhibitions to educate and enthral. Few would know it, but the world owes much to Jönköping, birthplace of the humble safety match. Of course, there's a match museum to word you up on this undervalued necessity, a collection of retro radios, a kid-friendly science museum and a superb collection of the work of renowned fairy-tale illustrator John Bauer at the county museum.
Well-priced accommodation, decent dining and ease of access mean Jönköping-Huskvarna warrants your attention for at least a day or two.
