The well-preserved and Europa Nostra-rated wooden town of Hjo attracts large numbers of visitors in summer. Here you can also stay over in rural setting. Red Stables B & B offers accommodation in a charming old stable block which was rebuilt in the late 1980s. Annika Karlberg had long fun-mended to start their own business and purchased the property 2006. She joined the Group from Gotland where she worked as a tour operator.

- On Gotland, the Stockholm prices, but here it was cheaper and because the influx is so great, it felt good to start something here. Originally, she had planned to have closed in winter, but now visitors year round, so it was that agricultural work, a lifestyle. Red Stables B&B is classified as Garni - hotel standard but without restaurant.

- Allinclusive, Also breakfast and each room has its own exit to the porch so you can sit out in the countryside and enjoy the morning or a barbecue in the evening. It is 300 meters to Vättern where you can take a dip.

- Hjo is incredibly beautiful. My favorite is Hjoåns valley, a nature reserve where the river flows from Mullsjön down through waterfalls and rapids to Lake Vättern, and you can follow trout hiking upwards when to play. For those who wish to swim there boardwalk, bathed in Hjos pasture or Breviks sandy beach. Around the whole city is beautiful wooden houses and the city park is nice to just stroll around. Hjo is also famous for Swedish Tin, their crafts and glass kiosks. At the port served vättersik and local delicacies.

- The golf course at Hökensås is well worth a visit - it has 27 hole, three loops and a great view.
