Untouched archipelago, fantastic swimming, picturesque town settings and entertainment! Västervik on the east coast of Småland is Sweden at its best. Fantastic Småland nature with leafy, green meadows and grazing cows. A small-town idyll. Then there is Sweden's most beautiful archipelago. It is this mix that makes it so exciting.

The City


See the landscape swish past the window on a 50s railbus, experience life from a bygone era on a historical estate or feel the invigorating wind out on the archipelago. A visit to an artist can give you perspective on daily life and why not bid on the find of a lifetime in an auction.


Regardless of whether your passion is golfing, fishing or splashing about with your kayak paddle, Västervik has everything you could need, not to mention Sweden’s most beautiful archipelago as backdrop. For more activities visit www.vastervik.com

Food & Drink

Local produce of the highest quality is one of our trademarks. Skilful cooks serve their dishes in fabulous surroundings, regardless of whether you are at a top restaurant in the country, outside the marina at Loftahammar, out on the archipelago in Laxboa or in a cosy tavern in central Västervik.




Västervik’s exciting town centre is full of shops, including national chains and local shops. Stroll around the shops, rest for a while at one of the small cafes and enjoy the wonderful sea views from the promenade in the centre of town. The amount of shops is on the increase. More recently, the variety of shops has expanded with a new shopping gallery that has opened on Storgatan, and several discount stores have opened around Västervik, including Cheapy, Överskottsbolaget, Rusta, Lager 157 and Scorett. You will find lots of bargains, with shopping to suit all tastes. It is not only in Västervik where there are great opportunities for shopping. Throughout the entire municipality there are many shops - everything from farm shops to the more established chains. You will most certainly enjoy a trip to Gamleby with its shopping mall Garpe and all the quaint shops.
