The first part of the city's name, "Jön", is derived from a creek, "Junebäcken", in Talavid, in what is now the western part of the city. The second part of the name "köping", is, as mentioned above, an old word for a trading centre or market place.In the build up to your vacation in Jonkoping, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Sweden trip itinerary website.
