In Växjö, nature is always close, you can for example fish in the city-near lake Växjösjön. Along the trail you will find a number of attractions, such as Teleborg Castle, the Swedish Glass Museum and the House of Emigrants. When you are at Ekotemplet, Växjö's water tower, you have reached Sydostleden's highest point 203 meters above sea level.
