Visit the Top 10 places in Kalmar with Coach Charter Germany - your coach charter company
Kalmar is a city in the southern Swedish province of Kalmar län and historic province of Småland. The town is on Kalmarsund's Baltic Sea coast. From the 13th to 17th century, Kalmar was once one of Sweden's largest and most important cities. Kalmar was an episcopal seat in the middle ages, and Kalmar Cathedral is a fine example of classical architecture. Over time Kalmar developed into a fortified, castle-centered city. After the Treaty of Roskilde in the 17th century, Kalmar's significance slowly declined, especially after industrialization was introduced in the 19th century. Today, this wonderful city on Sweden's south-east coast is one of the top locations for a great vacation in Sweden.

For some suggestions on places to visit in Kalmar please have a look at our top 10 Kalmar charter bus company tips.

1. Kalmar Castle  

Turrets, a drawbridge, a dungeon and secret passages ... Kalmar Castle is truly a real castle.. This impressive fortress was once the land's most significant building, well
constructed outside and sumptuously furnished inside. Feel free to explore Kalmar Slott on your own, but if you would like to find out more about the castle’s history and importance, you should certainly book one of the guided tours. These are offered every day and let you dive into Kalmar Castle’s long and proud history.

2. Kalmar County Museum

The highlight of this fine museum in the old harbor steam mill are the discoveries of the 17th-century Kronan flagship. The ship exploded and sunk just before 1676, killing nearly 800 people. It was rediscovered in 1980, and more than 30,000 beautifully preserved artifacts, including a magnificent gold hoard, clothing and musical instruments, have been excavated.

3. The Kalmar Art Museum

The museum situated in the park near Kalmar Slott. While it has no permanent collection, its striking galleries typically host one or two contemporary exhibits at any time. This museum is always worth visiting if you are an art lover.

4. Öland Bridge

If you spend a few days in Kalmar, you should make an excursion to the Öland Bridge, just about 7 kilometres north of Kalmar. The bridge connects Kalmar on the Swedish mainland with Färjestaden on the island of Öland in the east. The construction of the Öland Bridge was officially started on 30 December 1967. The inauguration took place on 30 September 1972. The bridge structure was built by Swedish companies using reinforced concrete. Only a third of the entire construction is visible. The remaining two thirds are below the water surface. In some places the bridge foundation is 22 metres below the bottom of the Kalmar Sound. The bridge is 6,072 m long and 13 m wide. The highest point is 41.6 metres, the lowest 6 metres and the free passage height is 36 metres.

5. Kattrumpan

Not only does central Kalmar boast a beautiful beach, it has the best name anywhere. Kattrumpan (the cat's bottom) shares his cheeky nickname with a small town district, and is popular among Kalmar's youth. The city is so awash with gorgeous beaches that there is even one beach for nature lovers, and one reserved for dogs. How great is that ?

6. Old Town

Kalmar's medieval center, now known as the Old Town, lies next to Kalmar Castle. It still has many well-preserved eighteenth and nineteenth-century buildings and is an inviting cultural and historic quarter. This entire area of the city was destroyed by fire in 1647, after which the city council voted to move the center to Kvarnholmen Island where it is today. After much strain, the population slowly progressed, and the wealthier people eventually started building summer houses on the land once the medieval city was. With its winding alleys and small old houses, the Old Town provides an earlier impression of Kalmar.  

7. Stensö

Stensö, located about 2.5 km south of the center of Kalmar, is one of the most popular recreation areas in Kalmar. Here you will find a three-star camping site, holiday homes, an outdoor swimming pool, a café & restaurant, jogging loops, a mini golf course and wonderful nature. Take a walk along the hiking trails and enjoy the beautiful of the place. Observe the rich fauna, take a bath in the Kalmar Sound, or visit the place where Gustav Wasa returned to shore after his escape in 1520.

8. Kalmar Cathedral

The cathedral of Kalmar was built between 1660 and 1703 according to the plans of the famous castle architect Nicodemus Ticino the Elder, who was inspired by Italian Baroque churches when designing it. The cathedral church is centrally located on the main square Stortorget in the centre of Kalmar and is considered one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Sweden.

9. The Outdoors

Kalmar is a city literally surrounded by water. The city center, Kvarnholmen, is on its own island. There's plenty to do in and around the city center. Visit one of Kalmar's beaches, stroll around Kalmarsundsleden, or paddle around the city center and castle channels. Canoeing is a common activity in Kalmar, as the city is surrounded by canals and you can see many sights from the canoe. Kalmarsundsleden is a trail that passes many interesting and beautiful locations along the coast.   

10. Stadsparken

Kalmar City Park is located next to Kalmar Castle. Johan Jeansson, a town merchant, has been the driving force behind the park project and his donation allowed the park to be laid in the late 19th century. The park contains many native plant and tree species, including bamboo, plane, temple tree, walnut and wing nut. First opened in 1880, The Stadsparken is the perfect place to enjoy a summer day with the family.
