Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Was lovely to visit the Glass Museum. I really wanted to come here to see the Eurovision trophy, although I nearly missed it. Its a nice museum very informative but not much else to do. When we visited there were no practical demonstrations and it was very peaceful. The ticket also included visiting the adjacent museum which was all about how Smaland had helped through the ages, including an exhibition about its involvement with the titanic and the moon landing.

    Since I read the four volume Vilhelm Moberg epic The Emigrants (largely due to the musical Kristina fran Duvemala), I have been fascinated by the stories of large numbers of Swedes relocating to the USA. This well designed museum lays out the facts in a very easy to follow fashion and a visit is time well spent.

    I study at the university next to this castle and grew up as a child in the neighborhood of Teleborg, so I am a local. It is a beautiful castle to watch from the outside. Unfortunately it has a hotel and restaurant inside so it is not possible to go inside and explore it freely. The surroundings are good for a walk, 35-50 min walk from the city center, local buses are also available.

    Åsnens natinalpark is a beautiful place and there are several different hiking paths to choose from. They are not very long, between 0,3 and 2,6 km. We did Skogsslingan path (2,2 km), which is very rocky but absolutely stunning. It passes through several different forest types and part of it runs along the shoreline of lake Åsnen. There are information boards along the way, telling you about the history, vegetation and wildlife of the region.

    We went by during summer, and payed to walk over the bridge and see it. Remember to see if it is open.

    You need to be able to walk around to see it, not good for a baby carriage. We had a our baby in a baby carrier.

    Perfect place to stop en route to many of the other local attractions. Had we more time we may have gone on one of the three meadow walks around the gardens and lake. From 1km to 3km I believe. Next time.

    This is not a must see destination, but if you like having moments to be silly and playful, then the Teleborg water tower is worth the quick stop. Do a bit of shuffling in the gravel while drumming on a water bottle and making sounds and you have all the makings of a fun memory.

    My husband and I spent a few hours here enjoying the trees, the lake, and the well-defined trails. If you have the time while in Vaxjõ, I highly recommend a bit of forest-bathing in Bokhultet. (Also, parking is free!)

    This museum contains many historical items like clothing, shoes, furnishings from the 1800s and prior. It is certainly worth a walk through.

    I have visited the Observation Tower several times over the past few years. The views are always stunning in every season and there is quite some historic items in the tower itself.

    This lovely church is still standing as it once did and in use for services and concerts thanks to stubborn farmers way back then who did not let go of their beautifully painted wooden church and an acceptant church today respectful of it's history. Open for visitors all summer and still in use as one of the churches in the area.
