Askersund Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Askersund is an idyllic town in the province Närke at the northern end of Lake Vättern . In medieval times it was an important centre in an iron mining district. It has been known for its production of iron nails and scythes. The lake forms a nice archipelago close to town with about 50 islands accessible for those having a small boat or a canoe. There are several nature reserves not far from town and also the large forest area Tiveden, partly a national park. The town itself is inviting with wooden houses and many cafés.
