Hjo is a picturesque wooden town by Vättern with charming cobblestone streets and a welcoming marina with cosy restaurants.
From the spa era of the late 1800s there are many beautiful preserved turn-of-the-century villas, one of which is now the hostel in the centre of Hjo’s town park. The park was established in 1876 and has delightful lush grounds to stroll about in.
There is a large playground in the park, as well as tennis courts and mini golf. In the former indoor bathing house lies the exciting Vättern aquarium with interactive experimental exhibitions. Within walking distance you’ll find the harbour with a heated outdoor pool, restaurants and ice cream parlours. The mouth of the Hjoå (Hjo waterway) is a nature reserve and popular recreational area.
