Discover Småland

The edible Country

Do it yourself

Offers and inspiration - The Edible Country

You’ll find it in the deep forest right by Asa Herrgård (manor). Standing on the soft moss, the Småland table is surrounded by conifers, with the sky its ceiling. The rustling and whistling of the forest create the perfect accompaniment. You cook your meal on site. The seasonal ingredients are found right there in the forest, on the meadows, and in the lake. Småland has a lot to offer when it comes to meals and nature.

Whether you know a lot about Småland or come without expectations, we would love to help you make the most of your visit. We are not trying to tell you how to enjoy Småland, feel free, but these are some of the things we would love to show you. Some are well known and easy to find, others are located along modest country roads, and some of the best things are all over, like the forests and lakes, the red cottages and the stone walls.

We hope you’ll enjoy your stay. Welcome!

Nature for real

Hot design

Småland is a region of design. Did you know that this is where IKEA first started? The very first store now holds the world's only IKEA Museum. Also, don't miss The Kingdom of Crystal. See the artists form the glowing, melted glass mass into pieces of art. Every glassworks has their own style, and of course you can visit the glass shops to buy some unique pieces.

Idag är ingen vanlig dag - det är smålänningarnas egen dag 🎶 För att fira vår vackra dialekt äter vi av denna fina tåta - skickad över sundet av @fredriksbrodochbakverk i Färjestaden på Öland 🙏🏻 Mums 🙂 . Do we have to explain in English? Well, in Småland we have a nice accent and sometimes we leave the Rs out and put in a extra s. As today ”första torsdagen i mars” meaning ”the first Thursday in March”. And then we eat ”princess cake” 👍🏻🤪. Do you fully understand? Great 👏🏻 Welcome to Småland with the most beautiful accent in Sweden.
