As an Eksjö resident you are offered a great variety of leisure pursuits and there are almost three hundred clubs and associations of various sorts. It is difficult within the limits of this context to describe everything you can find here: Almost all sports are represented, e.g. orienteering, football, athletics and golf, and even horse-back riding, skiing, ice-hockey and team handball.

Eksjö is truly a centre of culture, which the number of cultural associations and events go to show. The town has its own School of Culture, focusing on music, theatre and fine arts. The cinema is a co-operative enterprise.

Being always close to nature is, however, one of the greatest advantages of life in Eksjö. Where ever you live, the forest is near by. Being in the great outdoors is good for body and soul. You can hike on the Highland-trail, go swimming in all the beautiful lakes, go canoeing and fishing and jogging in a number of tracks near town and in several of the villages.
