The feeling is almost surreal.The area is mainly characterized by the pointed steeply pitched roofs, the winding streets and alleyways, and the façades and color scheme evocative of cities in Denmark, Germany , rather than to the rest of Scandinavia.But somewhere it is a refreshing construction projects that deviate from the norm.Sometimes it's easy to forget that you are walking...

Some nice architectiual houses, streets and Alleys but it lacks real atmosphere. Walk the open Squares and small streets and you almost beleive that you are in the midst of historical Europé, but just - almost.

I went there to visit the Christmas faire and the medieval touch gave something special to the ambiance.

It`s fantasic to find something like this in Sweden. Old fashioned buildings , small streets,a lot of entertainments and of course many small shops with street food and things for Christamas. But you can´t find wine( glühwein) or something like that. a nice place to visit in Christmas time. of course you can go there every season . just take... More

Studying urban planning and environment the visit to Jakriborg was especially interesting. I really like the idea behind this little village (and it's well worth reading up on for anyone who visits too), however it still lacks some human life during the day, when most residents are working elsewhere. It really has potential and I hope to come back in... More

The whole idea about building a Medieval town in this flat part of Sweden, is incredible - and brave! I'm a Swede and I have been in Jakriborg several times to show friends. It's so hard to believe that this Medieval housing estate really exists! Already the name is funny. Jakriborg consists of two namnes and a place from a... More

You find this special place that revives a building style from the historical period dominated by Hansean city states around the East Sea not close to the sea and a harbour, but in open country close to a train station. Besides the buildings ttemselves there is not much to be seen or experienced - especially you should not expect to... More

I live here, so it's a bit surreal. I love the town, it's so pretty...but visit soon , since it's not well kept and it's sort of dead. It has such a potential. The owners do not take in show keepers or small businesses ,unfortunately, in all the empty and potential shops.
