Romantic weekend in Österlen in Skåne
Are you looking for a charming and cosy retreat for a weekend away from stress and high pulses? Then take a look at Kivik. The small town in Österlen in Skåne is best known for its "apple cider factory" and the big marketplace known as Kivik’s market, and can offer a quiet that not many cities can beat. Here you will be near both Kristianstad and Ystad.
Walk in Wallander's footsteps in Ystad's cosy town centre, go to the beach or take an excursion to Ales stenar – the famous stone setting in Kåseberga, similar to Stonehenge.
Here in the garden of Quality Hotel® Grand Kristianstad you can enjoy the sun and reminisce about your first date.
You will have a great stay at the Quality Hotel® Grand Kristianstad – right opposite the city's most valuable treasure from 1628 – Trefoldighetskirken (Church of the Trinity).
Mediaeval town + nature = a world-class romantic weekend in Visby
Visby is the perfect destination for a romantic weekend. The city is the best-preserved mediaeval town in the Nordic region, and has had a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List for over 20 years. The ring wall, mediaeval houses and dozens of church ruins make the city historic, mysterious, and romantic. In the summer you can actually get the feeling of being by the Mediterranean!
You can also easily get away from the myriad of people and find yourself some peace and quiet for a weekend. For example, at Bjärge, in the Digerhuvud nature reserve on Fårö, you and your partner can experience Sweden's largest area of steep, freestanding cliffs.
Vivacious and romantic atmosphere at Selma City Spa Wisby.
Clarion Hotel® Wisby is a hotel with a unique history and atmosphere, located within the wall that surrounds the city. Here you can treat yourself to relaxation at the spa, or enjoy a meal at the hotel's restaurant, Kitchen & Table. What more could you need to make love blossom?
