Create Memories

hotellrum med ljusa färgerAre you looking for accommodation for just one night or a place that can be your base camp for a longer period of time? We can offer you both, and you will find peace and quiet in our town by the lake Vänern.

You can choose from rooms in historical buildings, hotel rooms in the city center, a campsite next to a manor, rooms in a farm house or a cottage by the lake. During summertime commuter-boats can take you to the islands in the archipelago. During Wintertime you might try ice-skating or fishing through a hole in the ice (jigging). Stay for a few days and let us help you find your favourite place in our corner of the world.

Welcome to Kristinehamn!


solnedgång över vänernLake Vänern is the third largest lake in Europe and a mighty and a mighty inland-sea with wonderful views of the horizon. Due to its size the lake offers an environment that is closer to the sea than an inland-lake. Smooth rocks, islands, beaches and shallow bays.

Over 20.000 islands and islets are found in the lake. Some of these can be reached by the boats that traffic the archipelago. The boat warf where you hop on and off is Vålösundsbryggan

The lake Vänern is within easy reach. Spend some hours at a café with a lake view or enjoy the sun on a smooth rock with the waves slapping at your feet.
