Bild med Helgå och naturum i bakgrunden

Are you thinking of visiting Kristianstad, Åhus and the surrounding area? Here is a list of tips!

Naturum Vattenriket

Vattenriket's visitor center is located in the middle of the city Kristianstad and in the middle of Kristianstad Vattenrike Biosphere Reserve. On stilts in the middle of the water, entirely made of wood with unusual angles, nooks and crannies, the naturum is a node between city and nature.

Bäckaskog castle and park

On a narrow isthmus between two sparkling lakes, monks chose to build their monastery in the 13th century. The closeness to nature and the historical and cultural background make the castle a popular destination.
