Discover Älmhult on land
Are you a country lover? If so, you’ve come to the right corner of the world. There’s plenty to explore here and lots of lovely places just waiting to be discovered. Signposted cycling and walking routes run around Lake Römningen and the ancient burial site with stone cists (graves). Go for a bike ride through the beautiful Småland countryside to one of Älmhult’s biggest sights, Råshult, the home of Carl Linnaeus.
The countryside around Älmhult is extremely varied, spanning the unique rolling landscape in the south-eastern corner with erratic rocks, to the green countryside in the north. The stretch of land east of Lake Möckeln contains nature reserves with fantastic scenery. The reserves are located at: Taxås, Höö, Stenbrohult, Kronan, Stockanäs, Tångarna and Möckelsnäs.
Höö has one of the highest numbers of different species in Småland, while Kronan nature reserve where the bedrock is granite, has rare species of flora. Take your picnic basket, get your boots on and enjoy a walk in leafy woodland.
