Gränna is known for its production of bolche bars. The first buns were produced in 1859, when Amalia Eriksson was given permission to open a buns factory in the town. Best known are the popular red and white peppermint buns. Don't deprive yourself of a visit to "Gränna Bolchekogeri". The shop is open most of the year and during the summer (weeks 24-32) there are free tours every day at 10.30, 13.00, 15.00 and 16.30. Every year, the World Biscuit Production Championships are also held in Gränna.
At Gränna Museum you can learn more about the town's famous personality, Salomon August Andrée, who was born in Gränna in 1854. Here you can learn about his ill-fated balloon voyage to the North Pole in 1897.
Take the ferry over to Visingsö, where the Brahe family ruled for a long time. There is still a permanent population on the island and it is popular to visit the old fortress ruins.
For visitors with children, the best bathing area is at Grenna Harbour.
