The lake is a Swedish tourist attraction and its water is renowned for being so clean it can be drunk without treatment. Visitors who hire a car in Jonkoping can visit plenty of attractions on the surrounding countryside, like the ancient Viking burial grounds at Visingsø, the scenic Domne River valley and Visingborg castle.
Sweden's tenth largest city, Jonkoping, is renowned for the number of churches dotted throughout its streets. If you hire a car in Jonkoping all the city's attractions are easy to reach. The highlights include the Lake Vättern waterfront and pier and two smaller lakes on the south side of the city: Munsjon and Rocksjon. The city grew on the basis of making matches, today, in Tändsticksområdet, the area where matches were made there's a match museum and a good selection of arts and crafts shops to browse.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
