Though nebulous it is almost tangible. It has to be experienced. Abundant evidence of this takes the form of the many remarkably well preserved medieval buildings in which one can almost step back in time. Not least among Vadstena’s other attractions is its immediate proximity to Lake Vattern which affords beaches and aquatic activities. A key factor in maintaining not only an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, but also generating the energy and movement in Vadstena, is the pride and sense of custodianship that the residents have in the place that creates it. A place that for centuries people have turned to for recreation and inspiration. Vadstena has always been a place to marvel at, visit, return to, enjoy and stay in. Vadstena doesn’t only have one history – but many. And we create them together. Welcome to Vadstena!
UpplevVadstena.se is an independent project and was first published in November 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.
