Street of Glass Art

On "Glasgatan"/the Street of Glass Art you can see the work of world famous studio glass designers. Seven glass artists were commissioned to do a sculpture to adorn the central street Sandgärdsgatan in Växjö. The result was the Street of Glass Art, which opened in 2011. In one end of Sandgärdsgatan lies Växjö cathedral that wraps up the Street of Glass with it´s triptych altar screen, sculptured by Bertil Vallien. The artists of the Glass Street are Bertil Vallien, Ulrica Hydman-Vallien, Kjell Engman, Göran Wärff, Ludvig Löfgren, Åsa Jungnelius and Anna Ehrner.

Do & See

It is easy to discover Växjö. We often say that you can reach everything within 15 minutes. You are close to everything, for example the Linneaus garden, Sweden's Glass Museum, the Swedish Emigrant Institution, and you can easily walk between the city's different sights. On your walk you will almost certainly do some shopping and rest your feet at one of Växjö's many cafés and restaurants. Or just take a pause on one of the benches beside Lake Växjö.
