Spring is here and Walpurgis Eve, also known as Valborg, is just around the corner, how exciting!
However, as a new student in a foreign city, it can be difficult to know which are the best places to celebrate the arrival of spring in jönköping.
Following is a list of some events that will take place during the 30th of April. The only thing you need to do is gather the gang, the picnic-blanket and put on your best party mood!
