Kalmar is a city full of contrasts. It is a meeting place for long ago and here and now, for repose and vitality.
Historic structures, cobblestone streets and lovely parks give the city charm and character. At the same time there is a broad range of restaurants, pubs, shops and galleries. There are multinational companies, a modern university and an airport just a ten-minute drive from the city centre.
Art, culture, design, food, entertainment and shopping. Stay in Kalmar and you will get maximum experience in minimum expanse.
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.
