Hike in John Bauer’s footsteps! John Bauer Trail is the most beautiful path between Huskvarna and Gränna. You can start or finish in Huskvarna by the IKHP cottage. The walking trail passes through a wonderful and varied countryside.
The John Bauer Trail is named after the well-known Jönköping artist John Bauer, who got inspiration from these areas. You will pass many old buildings on your way. Near Gränna is the village of Röttle located, where you will find Jerusalem's mill from the 13th century. It is one of the nation's oldest non-church buildings. There is also Rasmus mill from the 17th century, which is still in operation.
You finish your hiking at Grännaberget 350 metres above sea level. You have a unique view of the four provinces that surround Lake Vättern. There are windbreaks as well as fireplaces along the entire trail.
