Eksjö Town Walks
These walks take you on a tour of the beautiful Eksjö Old Town and its 600-year heritage. Learn all about the people, the crafts, the plagues and the fires – and the typical wooden buildings and their fascinating history, for example, “Krusagården”, “Societetshuset” and “Vaxblekaregården”. Eksjö is the very essence of a town formed and developed during the period of Sweden's great power. The majority of the lots in Old Town dates back to the late 16th century. Many of the houses were built from mid- 1700's and onwards. Arendt de Roy is the same person as Arendt Byggmästare (master builder) and it is when you walk on "his street that you can see and breathe the busy street life that has taken part here for the past 400 years. Let's take a walk on the cobbled streets, from the river bridge up to the church. Maybe you will catch the soul of Eksjö and of times gone by. Guided tours are availiable during summertime, departing from Eksjö Tourist Office. You can also wander through the town at your own pace, using the audio guide. Guided town walks for groups are given all year round and are bookable at Eksjö Tourist Office.
