A TRUE STORY Mattias was about to close the tourist office in Grums when a German family stepped in. They had come to Sweden for a canoeing holiday and were soaked to the skin from persistent rain. They looked so miserable and unhappy standing there dripping with water, even their backpacks were soaking wet. Mattias felt so sorry for them he invited the whole family home with him to use his washing machine and tumble dryer. A delighted, dry and happy family were then able to continue their holiday in greater comfort.

Every summer the municipality with the ‘happy sun’ invites everyone living in Karlstad and visitors to the area to a free concert at the Sandgrundsudden Cape.

Inger and Lasse Sandberg, the creators of many well-loved characters in children books, come from Karlstad.

During the summer you can hire a Solacykel bike at Stora Torget and cycle along one of the many cycle paths that take you through Karlstad.

THE CITY WITH THE HAPPY SUN Karlstad is the largest city in the county of Värmland. This naturally makes it a magnet for everyone who is looking for good shopping, entertainment, culture and major events. Visitors soon discover that the people of Karlstad are open and hospitable. We want to make everyone who comes here feel very welcome. It is true that most summers we normally find ourselves

high up in the league table of sunshine hours, but our ‘sun’ actually has a historic past that we love telling visitors about. Eva Lisa Holtz was a waitress in the city towards the end of the 18th century. She was famous for her happy-go-lucky nature and became known as ‘Sola i Karlstad’ (the Sun in Karlstad). You can go and meet her yourself, as her statue is on the riverside by Stadshotellet.

WATER FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY Sundstabadet - Karlstad’s new aquapark is just ten minutes walk from Karlstad City Centre. The attractions here include a waterfall, heated water bubble pool, climbing wall, outdoor pool with water currents and a children’s area with several pools featuring figures from children’s book authors Inger and Lasse Sandberg. There are also two scary water chutes, the Magic Hole and Black Hole. And when you have had your fill of aqua fun, you can recharge your batteries in the café. You can also book a strength workout or spinning class in the new gym there.

CAFE IN KAFFESKRAPAN

NIGHTLIFE IN KARLSTAD

Karlstad’s very own coffee brand and company, Löfbergs, has now opened a café on the ground floor of Kaffeskrapan in Karlstad City Centre Harbour. Rosteriet communicates the Karlstad company’s passion for coffee and tea, serving a complete range of blends and roasts from all round the world.

Nightclubs, pubs, cafes, restaurants – Karlstad boasts a rich selection of entertainment. Along the whole of Kungsgatan, you will find pubs and bars side by side, where Italian aromas mix with the smell of juicy hamburgers, and where people meet to enjoy a well-earned drink with their friends. The party often continues at the Tempel, Jaguar and Koriander nightclubs.

OUTDOOR CAFES AND RESTAURANTS

PERFECT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE

During the summer months the streets and squares are bustling with outdoor cafes and restaurants. Karlstad is actually one of the cities with the most outdoor cafes and restaurants in Sweden. There is a wonderful note on the door to one of the restaurants on the square saying ‘Today we’re working outside’. Isn’t this everyone’s dream?

The centre of the city is home to many shopping arcades with well-known chains and charming small boutiques side by side, making the city centre perfect for a day’s shopping. The Bergvik and Välsvikens shopping malls and Ikea are not far from the city, and are ideal places if you want to fill up your car before heading home.

The River Klarälven is one of the longest in Europe, stretching 460 km from Härjedalen, through Norway and down through Värmland before flowing out into Lake Vänern through Karlstad.

You can travel between the east and west coast of Sweden through the River Göta, Lake Vänern and the Göta Canal.

All the boat buses have wheelchair access. The largest boat, Omega, has also been adapted for powered wheelchairs.

THE RIVER KLARÄLVEN, LAKES AND OUR OWN INLAND SEA Water has a positive effect on people. It was by the water that the original ironworks grew up, and today all the various watercourses in the area still affect our day-to-day lives and the leisure activities we offer. Karlstad is built on the delta of the River Klarälven, which has eight branches flowing into Lake Vänern – the largest lake in Sweden and the third largest in Europe. The elonga-

ted Lake Värmeln in the west was where this whole province got its name: the land around Lake Värmeln, Värmland. Lake Vänern has more than 22,000 islands. Many of them are located in the archipelago outside Karlstad, Hammarö and Grums. Living a boating life can have its advantages. You can simply find a rock or a beach to moor your boat. The fresh water is clean and perfect for swimming.

www.varmlandsmuseum.se/1/1.0.1.0/85/1/ (Dyvelstens flottningsmuseum) www.hammaro.se/en/Fritid-och-kultur/Skargardsmuseet/

TRY YOUR LUCK FISHING If fly-fishing for salmon and trout is your passion, Forshagaforsen is a place you will love. At the Angling Centre there (Sportfiskecentret) you can swap stories with other anglers, enjoy a break out of the weather or barbecue your catch. The salmon here is unique in the world. When the land started to rise after the last ice age, this salmon species was cut off and started to use the River Klarälven as their spawning ground instead of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. This is why they are called ‘Landlocked Atlantic Salmon’. In Kil, just west of Forshaga, Sweden’s largest lake trolling competition is held every year. There is also the Gäddfestivalen (Pike Festival), which will take place in September this year; the winning team is the one that catches the highest combined weight. If you would prefer to fish without being in competition with other anglers, you can buy fishing permits from various locations, including tourist offices.

LEARN MORE ABOUT FLOATING

ARCHIPELAGO MUSEUM

Although floating timber down the River Klarälven came to an end in 1991, you can relive the memories at the Dyvelsten Flottningsmuseum in Forshaga. Children of all ages are invited to experiment and play. You can learn and discover more about the mystical world of the river and the history of timber floating.

The cultural heritage centre at Hammarö Church is also home to Skärgårdsmuseet (the Archipelago Museum), which houses a unique collection of old fishing objects used in the lake. The boat bus stops right next to it. Hammarsudde is nearby, which is a popular area for rambling and walks, and has a hiking trail that has been adapted for wheelchair users.

ROCKS BY THE WATER

LOTS OF BATHING PLACES

At the southern tip of Hammarö, you can have a rest on the rocks by the Skagen lighthouse and look out over the horizon. Another popular destination is Göteborgsudden in Karlstad, which has wheelchair access. Pack a picnic basket and go there as soon as you can, you will not regret it.

If you want to bathe in the waters here, not only can we offer the third largest lake in Europe, we are also home to Sweden’s longest river. So it’s no surprise that there are so many bathing places, bays, rocks and sandy beaches to choose from.

7

Hammarö is one of the largest islands in Lake Vänern. Not surprising that people have coined the expression ”The Archipelago municipality”.

If you are on the River Klarälven south of the Borgmästarbron bridge in Karlstad, you can fish for free without a fishing permit.

If you do not get a bite while you are fishing, you can visit Lillängshamnens Fiskrökeri which offers salmon, herring and perch.

EXCITEMENT AT SEA If you arrive in Karlstad by boat, then our marina will probably be the first thing you see when you come here. This gives you a good first impression of what we can offer you during your holiday. Inre Hamn, the harbour area, welcomes you with the smell of freshly roasted coffee in the air, and you will see many people from Karlstad who meet up on the piers around the marina to have a meal or simply spend time together. Recently Inre Hamn celebrated 150 years and although it is developing as a modern residential area, history is still all around; just like it is in the rest of the

Karlstad region. If you do not have your own boat, there are still many ways for you to get out onto Lake Vänern, River Klarälven and our many lakes. Take a RIB ride out into the Lake Vänern archipelago. Feel the wind in your hair as you speed towards the horizon. Not only will you have a thrilling experience, you will also have a fascinating tale to take home with you. Here are some more options if you would like to head out onto the water. Welcome onboard!

www.lillangshamnens-fiskrokeri.se

EVERYONE WANTS TO CATCH THE BOAT BUS When summer arrives, boats join buses as part of the public transport network. You can just go one stop or travel around Karlstad and see the city along the beautiful stretches of the River Klarälven and the charming lock. There are seven routes and 20 stops, and tickets are exactly the same price as a normal bus journey. The boat bus service also offers unforgettable archipelago trips to the islands of Västra Långholmen, Jäverön and Rävön, where you can hop off if you would like to bathe in the waters or take a look around. A longer trip is the one cruising between Karlstad-Hammarö-Kristinehamn. If you download the waterbus guide app (available for both Android and iPhone) you can make the most of your trip by listening to information on the places you are passing and see exactly where you are in real time on the map. The app is available in Swedish, English, German and Spanish. The waterbuses run from June to August in Karlstad, Hammarö and Kristinehamn.

ENJOY SEAFOOD AT LAKE VÄNERN

CANOEING & KAYAKING

If you love seafood, why not book a prawn cruise across Lake Vänern on the charming passenger ship the M/S Vestvåg? These popular prawn cruises have now been running for fifteen years in Karlstad. In addition to prawns, local dishes from Värmland are also served on board.

Gliding along the water in a canoe or a kayak is a popular summer adventure for many people. There are several companies in the area that rent out canoes and kayaks. Remember that the River Vänern is strong, so we would recommend kayaks if you want to go out onto the largest lake in Sweden.

HISTORIC BOAT TRIP ON FREJA

MARINAS

Freja av Fryken is a steamboat that sank in 1896, remaining at the bottom of the lake for a hundred years before being salvaged and renovated. Her home dock is Fryksta in Kil and you can take a guided tour or go on an evening cruise on Freja through beautiful historic landscapes.

There are several marinas for you to choose from here. These include Lillängshamnen at Hammarö, Karlstad Marina and the marina in Borgvik, Grums. If you would like more information about the marinas, please contact the tourist offices; you can find their contact details on the back.

Imagination and creativity, focusing on colour and shape, are the hallmarks of Mimmi Design, whose workshop and shop are located in Pikenberg outside Grums.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris was largely built with iron ore from Borgvik.

Halla in Forshaga is home to the only genuine Father Christmas in Värmland, Inge Olson. There, it is Christmas all year round.

TAKE A CULTURAL JOURNEY Värmland has a rich cultural heritage. Many of Sweden’s greatest storytellers throughout history come from this part of the country. In and around Karlstad you will find many cultural places recounting our history and offering a wide range of music, songs and plays. The Värmland Theatre is presenting a number of theatre productions for both children and adults in the coming year, such as Trolltider and the classic Jekyll & Hyde.

On the southern shore of the Fryken lakes you will find Fryksta Krukmakeri, a pottery works famous for its designs and practical and ornamental ceramics. You can even try your hand at a potter’s wheel if you wish. At Alsters Herrgård, you can learn more about the life and works of Swedish poet Gustaf Fröding, and enjoy dramatised walks in the delightful grounds.

PUTTE I PARKEN FESTIVAL 3-6 JULY Last year the Putte i Parken music festival was organised for the fifth year in a row and for the first time in Karlstad. The Festival was held in Mariebergsskogen Park and proved a great success. The attendance record was broken and the visitors were full of praise. Mariebergsskogen provides the perfect setting for a summer festival with its extensive grassed areas to imbibe the atmosphere in. It is also close to a great place to swim, Mariebergssviken, and there were play areas in the heart of the festival area. In other words, a friendly festival that offers something for everyone. Performers confirmed at time of printing include Ulf Lundell, Håkan Hellström, Amanda Jenssen and Timo Räisänen.

FRYKSTA WATER FESTIVAL For the fourteenth year in a row, Fryksta Water Festival will be held on the southern shore of the Fryken chain of lakes in Kil.
