Coastal city

Wherever you happen to be in Kalmar, you will feel close to the sea. In how many cities can you go swimming at the end of Main Street? Or find a guest harbour in the very centre of town?

Kalmar is surrounded by water. The city centre itself, Kvarnholmen, is situated on its own island. Proximity to the sea produces sensational light, regardless of the season. Clear blue skies, grey skies heavy with rain, thin white summer clouds, brisk winds, snow squalls or haze. The view is constantly changing. As a result, one season is no more beautiful than another.

Appreciated guest harbour

Kalmar Guest Harbour attracts both Swedish and international boaters. The location is one of the strengths – the guest harbour is located in the city centre close to attractions, culture, shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
