Lake Vättern and plains

The nature is varied and apparently close, here is Omberg, Tåkern, the beautiful fertile Östgötaslätten and so Lake Vättern. Here the residents literally walk in the bathrobe down to the beach for a morning bath, and in the middle of town there are both sandy beaches and guest harbour.
