Despite being a relatively small town, Katrineholm is rich in both culture and history. For cultural indulgence, visitors can this year enjoy a week-long festival celebrating its 30th birthday: countless musical performances and concerts as well as street art and installations throughout the town. There is however one line of culture that Katrineholm prides itself on a little extra: namely being the home of castles and mansions, where large parts of Swedish history and cultural traditions are kept alive. Unlike other castles in Scandinavia, the estates in Kathrineholm are often inhabited by the original families who are preserving history within their homes.
