airbnb Karlstad, Sweden

Located on the delta of the longest river in Sweden, Karlstad is known as one of the sunniest towns in Sweden. Lovers of literature and art may know that many well-known artists have ties to Karlstad, including the painter Lars Lerin, 19th-century poet Gustaf Fröding and the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature, Selma Lagerlöf. The winding river and freshwater lake provide plenty of opportunities to take in the natural beauty of the region. Some cultural points of interest include Sandgrund Lars Lerin, Värmlands Museum, Karlstad Cathedral, Brigadmuseum and Alsters Herrgård. If the weather is pleasant enough, take a stroll through the central city square, Stora Torget, or have a waterside picnic in the Stadsträdgården. After a long day, you might want to kick your feet up and enjoy a good meal at the Inner Harbor where there are plenty of restaurants and cafes serving up delicious treats.
