Places to Visit

Kalmar Castle

To the south of the Kalmar Municipal Park, on a small island, is Kalmar's medieval Castle, surrounded by walls and bastions. It is a massive five-towered structure, the earliest parts of which were built at the beginning of the 11th century. It was enlarged in the 16th century and restored at the end of the 19th century. Between 1307 and the beginning of the war with Denmark in 1611 it withstood no fewer than 24 sieges.

Oland Bridge

 To the north of Kalmar, the Öland Bridge (Ölandsbron) links the island of Öland with the mainland. Opened in 1972, it is the longest bridge in Europe (6,072m/6,641yd).

Klackeberga Church

North of Kalmar is the 12th century fortified church of Kläckeberga. On E 22 to the north of Kalmar are many little seaside resorts and fishing villages. The next town is Oskarshamn.

Kvarnholmen

Kalmar originally lay below the castle, but after it had been largely destroyed during the wars with Denmark and by a great fire it was rebuilt on the island of Kvarnholmen from 1647 onwards.

Larmtorget

In Kvarnholmen, Storgatan runs south from Stortorget to Larmtorget, with a fountain (1928) in honor of Gustavus Vasa, who landed at Stensö, southwest of Kalmar, in May 1520. On the west side of the square is the Theater (1863), with a neo-Renaissance facade.
