Port information



Kalmar
(c) Kalmar

Kalmar

The Port of Kalmar lies in a sheltered position, adjacent to the shipping lane in Kalmar Sound. The port is fully equipped and has a long experience in receiving cruise ships. Smaller cruise ships moor at the dedicated cruise quay Elevatorkajen in the city center, whereas larger cruise ships anchor just south of the port. There is a new-built jetty for tenders right in the city center.

In Kalmar we have a one ship a day and first-booked first-served policy in order to be able to deliver a high quality experience. When cruise ships call we offer a free Cruise Welcoming Area - with tourist information service, free WiFi and a crew area.

Kalmar is one of Sweden’s oldest cities, and has received the Europa Nostra award twice for the town’s historical and well-preserved atmosphere. Stroll about in the 17th-century downtown area and meet the people at the city’s many outdoor cafés and restaurants, in the beautiful city park or in the charming Krusenstiernska garden.
