Kristianopel - A hidden gem

Kristianopel, which is one of the most sun safest places in Sweden, is a true hideaway!

There are small shops, restaurants and a popular café. Accommodation is at the campsite, in the harbor, in cabins or at a Bed & Breakfast. 

To stroll around among the small wooden houses, where the heavy scent of roses from the gardens mixes with the fresh breeze from the sea is the best way to experience Kristianopel. Sit down on a bench in the harbour and look out over the water where you can imagine Öland's southern point in the horizon.

If you want to see the village a bit from above, you can walk around parts of the village on the mighty, old city wall. The view is fantastic!

Kristianopel's history

Kristianopel reminiscents of times of strife and war. Everywhere one sees traces of the time when the border between Denmark and Sweden joined in these parts. The kilometer-long city wall with its bastions protected the inhabitants, but above all it testifies of a heavily fortified border between the countries. The city was founded by the Danish King Christian IV in the early 1600s and is considered to be Scandinavia's first Renaissance city. The currently idyllic Kristianopel has an exciting and sometimes very violent history to discover and learn more about.
