Kalmar Hotels

Overlooking the gentle waters of the Baltic Sea, Kalmar is a jewel of the south-east of Sweden. Whether you want a holiday that's all about shopping and dining, or swimming and sunbathing, this is a city break destination that ticks every conceivable box. One minute you'll be wandering wide open squares and cobblestoned side streets, the next you'll be paddling in the frothy waters and looking out at the neighbouring island of Oland. Entertainment, art and natural beauty all combine to make this a holiday to remember.

Things to see

Kalmar Castle is one of the iconic buildings of Sweden, and in fact it did play an important role in the history of the country. It has its roots in the tumult of the 12th century, but today it's a place to wander at your leisure, admiring the rich golden decor and unashamedly colourful murals. Or just do as the locals do, and bask outside in the sun by the castle's moat. Another grand old landmark is Kalmar Cathedral, with its distinctive turquoise and yellow façade which sparkles in the sun. You can indulge your inner culture vulture at Kalmar Art Museum, but if the weather's good then the absolute best way to enjoy the region is by heading for one of the beaches. Kattrumpan is close to the heart of the city, but there are numerous other sweeps of sand in the environs which you can bask on, including Langviken with its jetty. And don't forget the white sands of Oland, the island which can be reached via one of the longest beaches in Europe.

Hotels in Kalmar

Many of the hotels in Kalmar are as picturesque as the rest of the city. Expect pastel-hued old buildings whose historic facades conceal contemporary comforts. Guestrooms can be understated or lavish depending on your tastes and budget, but even at the lower end of the price scale you can find accommodation offering mod-cons such as WiFi and flat-screen televisions. Not to mention saunas where you can relax after a day's sightseeing, and bars where you can have a nightcap with the knowledge your bed is just a few steps away.

Where to stay

The majority of hotels in Kalmar are clustered around the town centre. This is great news if you're after a classic city break, and you intend to spend much of your time ambling around the winding old streets and admiring the epochs-old architecture. Saying that, there are also a few hotels right alongside the airport, which is handy if you want a seamless arrival or departure. Hotels can also be found on the island of Oland – no need to worry about the distance, as Kalmar is just a short drive away via that stunning bridge.

How to get to Kalmar

Visitors may be glad to know that the city has its very own gateway – Kalmar Airport - which receives domestic flights. Located just minutes from the historic centre and the sparkling coastline, it's perfect if you're getting here from Stockholm, but international flights are available through Copenhagen Airport, which is a few hours away by train. Those with hire cars can also make use of excellent road connections.
