Book a holiday home at Lake Vättern for an unforgettable stay

The second largest lake in Sweden and the fifth largest in Europe, Lake Vättern is a slender body of fresh water that lies in south central Sweden. Whilst nearby Lake Vanern is better known, Lake Vättern charms visitors with its secrets, timeless folklore and wildlife. While some believe the name Vättern comes from 'vatten', the Swedish word for water, others believe it stems from an archaic word which refers to forest or lake spirits.

Cultural activities at Lake Vättern

Among Swedes, Lake Vättern is best known for the iconic monster that supposedly lies in wait beneath its still waters. While proof of it may not exist, the legend does undeniably make room for a little excitement. Cyclists should watch out for the popular annual recreational cycling race, the Vätternrundan, which attracts more than 20,000 participants who arrive to try their luck at completing the 300 km trip around the lake. The lake is surrounded by welcoming towns and villages such as Vadstena, Hjo, Askerskund and Karlsborg all of which offer cosy holiday rentals, holiday apartments and holiday homes you can rent. As the sun goes down, the waters take on surreal hues and it is possible to climb some of the cliffs which offer superb views of the lake. Sweden’s eventful past, in particular the castle of Läckö Slott, which was once owned by General Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie, is easily accessible from the lake.

Fishing and nature

Anglers are thrilled when they chance upon species of landlocked Atlantic salmon Arctic, char and pike. The Tiveden National Park, which lies between lake Vättern and lake Vänern, is an awe inspiring expanse of ancient forest filled with Ice Age rock formations. The northern edge of lake Vättern has a wealth of traditional country manors, holiday houses and holiday rentals. This mysterious lake at the tip of Scandinavia with its many secrets awits the curious visitor. Book your holiday house or holiday home in Lake Vättern today.
