Kristianstad Mini Guide

The city of Kristianstad is the seat of Municipality of the same name. Located in Skane County, Sweden, around 34,000 people live there. Unusually the city was actually founded by a Danish king and therefore the coat of arms that is portrayed for Kristianstad is one of only a few coat of arms in the world to have a picture of a foreign king. With a rental car, Denmark is not far away and you should let us know if you want to use your rental vehicle to make a cross-border journey to this nearby Scandinavian country.

Although this is a small city there are some attractive sites to see, such as an old Renaissance church which is incredibly beautiful. If you want to spend some time in the city centre then it is best to park your car outside and walk. Everything is easily accessible. A tour of the city will make you more familiar with its fascinating history. It was founded at the beginning of the 17th century to replace a nearby town which had burnt down. At the time there was quite a lot of conflict taking place between Denmark and Sweden.

It is also interesting to note that Kristianstad is actually below sea level and it takes a lot of work in the form of building levees to avoid flooding. Because the land lies low there are a lot of wetlands which surround it and are a good place to walk, or for birdwatchers to see interesting birds. Remember that we also offer car hire at Kristianstad Airport, a nearby regional facility which has connections the capital of Sweden.
