But in Vadstena there is a very special, almost magical atmosphere.
Perhaps it is the medieval settlement, the presence of the Vättern, the beautiful landscape of Östgötaslätten
or the pride of the inhabitants of its place that creates it.
But this is a place for both recreation and inspiration, people have known for hundreds of years.
Here you will meet pilgrims on hiking and residents in a robe on their way to the beach for a morning break - year round.
Here we meet committed and creative people inspired by history to create the future.
Welcome to experience Vadstena - a creative history.
UpplevVadstena.se is an independent project and was first published in Novermber 2015. Since then UpplevVadstena.se has become Vadstena's, Omberg's and Tåkern's leading digital visit and event guide
Attractions and events are presented with a holistic view and in their geographical, cultural and historical context.
The information paths are short, the menu structure is clear and navigation simple.
The event information is the best in the region with scrollable calendar as well as programme pages for lectures, guided tours, concerts, theatre, exhibitions and other events.
The content is available in Swedish, German and English.
The number of visitors on UpplevVadstena.se is as high as the number of visitors on the Omberg or in Vadstena's monastery church.
UpplevVadstena.se is a successful concept!
