Karlstad General Information

The historical Värmland province of Sweden is notable for dramatic mountain panoramas, beautiful lakes, rivers and streams and copious other bucolic countryside staples. Home to a prolific literary and musical legacy, the area on the border of Norway has a fine county capital in Karlstad.

A university city with a municipal populace of 85,000, Karlstad has one of the most enviable backdrops and urban landscapes in Sweden. The green, sunny city sits at the confluence of the country’s longest river, the Klarälven, and largest lake, the spectacular Vänern. As a result, huge numbers of domestic tourists flood Karlstad, particularly in summer, to take in the comely scenery and small city charm. Karlstad Town Square is the pretty nerve centre where most tourists set off from on pedestrian excursions throughout the city. Important cultural landmarks range from the Stiftelsen Värmlands Museum to Alsters Herrgård, the manor house where poet and writer Gustaf Fröding was born in 1860. Alfred Nobel’s Björkborn estate is a must-see point of interest in the town of Karlskoga, some 70 km from Karlstad. Recreation lovers will appreciate the multitude of options available on Vänern Lake and hockey enthusiasts should make a point to catch a Färjestads BK game at beautiful Löfbergs Lila Arena.
