Red waterlilies are very rare in Sweden, in fact they can only be found in lake Fagertärn and a few more smaller lakes in the vicinity. They were first discovered in the 19th century and became a big sensation. There is a footpath going around the lake, the section on the eastern side is broad and easy to walk. Until about 50 years ago this was the trackbed for the narrow gauge railway that was built to transport timber from the vast Tiveden forest down to the shore of lake Vättern were industries were built.
