Karlstad today is shaped by experiences, events and meetings. Enjoying a strategic location midway between Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo and good transport links by bus, train and plane, Karlstad is perfect for both smaller gatherings and large-scale conferences, events and concerts. With “Sola” as a symbol of the city, the hospitality of Karlstad residents and a wealth of ultramodern facilities, Karlstad is one of the country’s most valued meeting places.
