KRISTIANSTAD – A BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC CITY
Kristianstad is an elegant, historic city of Danish descent, surrounded by the beautiful Swedish nature. It is a city great for trade and the perfect place for those who enjoy shopping, with an abundance of small boutiques as well as many of the big retailers. The city has been carefully maintained and preserved to reflect its history.
Åhus, just outside of Kristianstad, is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Skåne with its cobblestone streets. It is famous for its eel, vodka, snuff, ice cream and a beautiful mile long beach where you can enjoy a bit of beach volley. You can also go on a vodka tour, visit the farmhouse shops and discover the many hiking and biking trails in the area.
Just outside of the Kristianstad city centre you will find museums and theatres, art exhibitions, the Tivoli Park and the Regional Museum where you can learn about the history of Kristianstad and Skåne whilst enjoying a ‘fika’- a cup of coffee or tea and usually a slice of homemade cake or biscuits.
