A weekend in Kristianstad - history, culture and entertainment in the south of Sweden

Book a holiday to Kristianstad and experience this historical Swedish town with plenty of cultural and natural experiences to be had for all.

Kristianstad is situated in the southern Swedish county of Skane, around 96 kilometres north east of Malmo and 125 kilometres south of Vaxjo. Kristianstad was founded in 1614 by Danish king Christian IV, whom it was also named after.

If you have an interest in history, there are many worthwhile places to see during your weekend in Kristianstad. Walk around the ruins of the 10th century castle Aosehus, and marvel at the majestic Church of the Holy Trinity, built in the 15th century by Christian IV. Impressively, its beautiful baroque organ from 1630 is still in use today. Don't miss the Artillery Museum where you can see more modern military vehicles and artillery pieces and visit exhibitions and lectures about military history.

Kristianstad is also home to the Vattenriket, an eco museum and protected wetland within walking distance from the train station and city centre. Start your visit to the reserve at Naturum, where you can learn more about species that live here, such as eagles, storks and cranes. Book a guided boat tour or rent a canoe and travel along Helge River. The centrally located swimming pool Tivolibadet offers another type of water experience for young and old.

Kulturkvarteret Kristianstad is a melting pot of different cultural phenomena. Here you can attend concerts, theatre, stand up, literary meets, lectures and lots of other events. Cultural events are also held at Kristianstads Teater and in Kristianstad Arena, which also hosts sporting events like handball tournaments.

Half an hour west of Kristianstad you find the splendid Tykarps Cave, where you on a guided tour can descend twelve metres underground. After the tour around the massive cavities and tunnels, head back up for a coffee at the café or stay and enjoy a candle lit dinner down in the mine. Get to the caves by car, but around Kristianstad itself it is easy to get around by train or bus.

Travel to Kristianstad by plane to Kristianstad Osterlen Airport and continue by car along motorway E22 or with local transport.

Book a holiday to Kristianstad, close to both city life and nature. These are just some examples of all the things that await.
