Great things do while visiting Kivik

  • Category: Perfect weekend
  • 1. Kivik Art Centre

    Kivik art centre opened in 2007 and shows contemporary art in beautiful surroundings. Different exhibitions every summer.

  • 2. Kungagraven

    The Kivik Grav or the Kings grave as it's also called is a 3,000 years old grave site. It' s a unique example of Northern European Bronze Age culture, not only because of its size (75 meters in diameter) but beacause of the unusal decorations.

  • 3. Esperöd Arboretum

    The most southern located arboretum in Sweden, founded in 1922. Many interesting trees, amongst them some old and large specimens of Magnolias. Buy a map for 20 SEK and explore by yourself or take a guided tour. The park with the pond is popular for weddings but if you continue further in its more of a jungle.
    There is a store and café next door.

  • 4. Kiviks musteri

    Enjoy a cultural and gastronomic experience at Äpplets hus in Kivik. The display garden features Nordic plants, providing visitors with inspiration for their own gardens. The Kärnhuset restaurant and café offers good food with a local character. You can find out how cider was made in the past, and buy cider, juice or other appleproducts to bring with you home.

  • 5. Stenshuvud

    Stenshuvud is one of the most varied national parks in Sweden. It features ancient remains, a coast-line of outstanding beauty and a rich flora and fauna.
    Enjoy the amazing view from the 97-metre high Stenshuvud hill. The climb is well worth it. Bring a picknick if the weather is good!
