Kalmar Castle

Get inspired in this interesting time of Swedish history by visiting Kalmar Castle.

In the town of Kalmar with around 60000 people, you will find this remarkable Castle. 

Incredible history

The history of this legendary castle goes back 800 years. For a long time, Kalmar Castle was an important fortification and known as the key to the kingdom because of its strategical location.

The Swedish-Danish border was located only a short distance to the south because Scania and Blekinge were Danish territories at the time and a significant defensive fortification on the then Danish border.

You will find the mix of the old with the new, and 16th and 17th century buildings find a purpose in modern life and buildings there are more recent are in tune with the old.

Take a break and visit Öland across the bridge.
