More About Karlshamn

Karlshamn is a city in the Blekinge province of southern Sweden.

Karlshamn is connected by railway, the nearest major stations are Kristianstad to the west and Kalmar to the east.

DFDS Seaways provides a few places for passengers on their near daily service to Klaipeda in Lithuania, on board ro-ro freight ferries. The journey takes around 15 hours.

Karlshamn received a Royal Charter and city privileges in 1664, when King Charles X Gustav realized the strategic location near the Baltic Sea and the rivalling Danish troops there. In 1666 the town changed its name from Bodekull to Karlshamn, literally Karl's Port.

In Karlshamn the Gungvalamasten, a 335 metre tall guyed mast for FM- and TV-transmission, is together with three other guyed masts of same height the tallest structure of Sweden.

Karlshamn Ferry Port
Kalshamn History

At the outlet of the stream "Mieån" was found a harbour and fishing village "Bodekull" and a farm "Bodetorp". In the lower parts of "Mörrumsån" was a prosperous salmon fishery.

Sweden gained supremacy over the territory through Treaty of Roskilde 1658. The king Charles X Gustav immediately inspected the coast and found here a tremendously beautiful and incomparable harbour. Fortifications designed by Erik Dahlberg were erected on Boön 1659 and on Friesholmen 1675, called "Kastellet". Troops loyal to the Danish king attacked the town twice in 1676-78. The location attracted foreign merchants and in 1664 royal privileges were issued to establish a town named after the king, meaning "Karl's Port". The settlement expanded rapidly to count 647 citizens in the year 1700. Pestilence reduced the population in 1710.

Industries based on agricultural and mineral products were established during the 18th century. A fire 1763 destroyed the northern part of the town, another fire ravaged in 1790. The intercontinental war of 1810 gave Karlshamn a rare possibility to trade goods and the citizens prospered. Punch, tobacco and snuff powder were produced in town. Craftmanship was common until circa 1880, when industrial production took over. The town had 6529 citizens 1883, the town plan covered 63 hectares and on 693 plots were buildings erected.

The railway inaugurated 1874 connected Karlshamn to Vislanda in the northern province. 1890 the coastal railroad was built. 1876 L.O. Smith established production of aquavit in the town and built a new distillery in 1884 which was effective until 1893, whereafter it was converted to a sugar refinery. In 1912 was established production of vegetable oil in the old refinery, a still continuing operation under the label AAK.

Stone cutting in granite quarries was a heavy export industry circa 1850–1940. In Mörrum a paper mill was built in 1962. The port of Karlshamn has gradually since 1975 transferred its operations to the Stilleryd location west of town. 1965 was a new hospital building in operation.

Karlshamn’s Culture Centre

The historical buildings of Karlshamn are well preserved and the Culture Centre has some very interesting attractions. The Swedish punsch factory, the silver forge, the art gallery, the printer’s workshop and the merchant houses. One of Sweden’s finest antique trading houses is situated at the Skottsbergska gården. The buildings are from the 1700’s and in the cellars you can see how business was conducted 200 years ago.

The ground and first floor were used as accommodation for the businessmen and the shops, storehouses and stables are situated beside River Mieån which runs at the bottom of the garden.

In the museum there are exhibits reflecting the fishing and shipping industries as well as a section paying tribute to the memory of Alice Tegnér. A building which is a remarkable example of a house from the 1600’s is called Holländarhuset.

The art gallery is situated in an old storehouse and there is a permanent display of paintings from the 40’s.

Karlshamn attracts visitors to the salmon fisheries in "Mörrumsån", to the rocky coastline and the Hällaryd archipelago and to the wooded hinterland. East of the city centre the famous Eriksbergs Viltpark is located. It is an old farmstead with surrounding land now host to a variety of native animals such as European Bison, Crown Deer, Moose and wild boar amongst others. Tourism peaks in June–August, when there is regular boat connection and accommodation service to islands like Tärnö.
