Weekend in Kristianstad

The visit to Åhus was made in connection with a press trip with Visit Kristianstad, but all thoughts and opinions are, as usual, my own.

Even though my mother-in-law is from Kristianstad, I can't say that I've been to Kristianstad very often. Nor can I say that I knew what there was to see and do in the municipality. You know how it is when you greet someone. You meet. You hang out. You go home. There is never time to explore the city's nature, restaurants and beautiful buildings. I think my last visit to Kristianstad was at my husband's grandmother's funeral. Now no relatives live in the city and I no longer have the roads past. Maybe that's why I was a little extra happy to be invited to a press trip to Kristianstad, to see what the region has to offer.

I'll write more about all the wonderful places we visited soon, but until then, here's a small cavalcade of pictures from some of the gems. Ravine Forsakar with Skåne's highest waterfall, cozy accommodation at Cocoon meetings (which has Sweden's largest Christmas tree farm!), seven kinds of wonderful cakes made from our own flour at Blåherremolla, history of spirits and mixing drinks on Absolute Home Experience, brunch at lovely the sausage café Sotnosarna, fishing stories from the eel fishermen at The twin cabins and glass art from beautiful Saint Mary's Church in Åhus. Sweden is pretty amazing, isn't it?

    Looks like a really lovely weekend! Kristianstad is nice, but I am very fond of Åhus, which is so cozy. I have a relative who lives there, as well as good friends, so I have had reason to go there every now and then. Now it's been probably 13 years since I was there last and I was so excited to go there and buy ice cream on the ice cream boat when I saw on Instagram that you were there. 🙂

      We have had a very inspiring weekend. Feel that I will want to go back here more times, so many amazing places with wonderful people. The ice cream in Åhus was both big and good - definitely think you should go to Åhus again 🙂
