I arrange guided walks in English in and around Kristinehamn, Värmland. As your guide I am dressed in historic clothes from the 18th and 19th century – the time when Kristinehamn had it’s great era.
Kristinehamn is the iron city of Sweden and has a long and interesting iron history. There are many interesting remains of this period of time when Kristinehamn was as important for the world economics as Wall Street in New York is today. The first iron mill was established here in 1572 in what was then called ”Bro”. The name Kristinehamn comes from Queen Kristina who gave the city it’s town priveliges in 1642. The city is strategically located at the northern point of lake Vänern, the third largest lake in Europe, and during the 18th and 19th Century we exported iron to countries all over the World.
