Växjö Cathedral

Växjö cathedral is one of Småland´s most visited places every year. The church is from the 12th century. The cathedral is located close to the shore of Lake Växjö. The imposing twin steeples can be seen over virtually the whole town. The cathedral is full of Småland studio art glass and a wander around the building takes us through several of the bible's narratives. The triptych altar screen, sculptured by world-famous glass artist Bertil Vallien, forms the tree of life: from death to life.

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.
