Kalmar is surrounded by water. The city centre itself, Kvarnholmen, is situated on its own island. Proximity to the sea produces sensational light, regardless of the season. Clear blue skies, grey skies heavy with rain, thin white summer clouds, brisk winds, snow squalls or haze. The view is constantly changing. As a result, one season is no more beautiful than another.
Kalmar Guest Harbour attracts both Swedish and international boaters. The location is one of the strengths – the guest harbour is located in the city centre close to attractions, culture, shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
