Turismenheten Kristinehamn

Our personal recommendations

Hello! Welcome to the Tourist Office! We are here to help you enjoy our city and region in the best possible way. On this page you’ll find some of our personal recommendations of what to see and do.

Linnéa

I love food and especially homemade food and local produce. I’m very fond of the homemade icecream served in a handmade bowl at the pottery and café Krukmakeri hemjord. They also offer delicious freshly baked organic cakes. To buy local products directly from the producer is a wonderful experience. There are a number of farm shops around Kristinehamn; Hygns Vilt, Sörgården, the food and crafts market in the Museum of history and Gretas Ost & Sånt. If you don’t want to cook yourself you can enjoy a local meal at Mastmagasinet, Restaurant Axel and Ölme Prästgård. Oliveriet makes authentic homemade Italian food.

As a former diver I love the water and the indoor pool at Kristinehamn Arena. My kids prefer the water shute while I nowadays enjoy the spa. The arena can also offer a huge inflatable play centre during school holidays – perfect for kids who need to get rid of some energy! Great places for families are also the animal farm Stadsbondgården and the go-cart. Popular activities are the trolley bikes and pirate trips onboard the old ship Bojorten.

Lake Vänern is probably my favourite place on earth. I have grown up on the islands and ilets of our freshwater archipelago. There is nothing better than sitting on a warm, smooth rock looking out at the waves and the horizon. Hop on one of the tour boats and explore the islands!

Ulrika

I find magic in our heritage. Beautiful old manors and parks that are full of tales and history have a magnetic power on me. I can really feel the history in these places and become a small part of it. If you are like me I can recommend a visit to Värmlands Säby Manor with its labyrinth and old oak trees, Gustafsviks herrgårdspark (an old manorpark with a number of intact buildings), the chapel of Östervik, Presteruds Herrgård (a manorhouse at the campsite) and Ölme Prästgård (the latter is a restaurant). All these places are magical sites for excursions, meetings, parties and other events.

You are always welcome to visit us at Kristinehamn Tourist Office.
