New town, old style

It's a nice neighbourhood that shows "how it used to be" in the area. It's an interesting walk to take.

This little town was planned to resemble a medieval German village with its typical architecture. People live there, children play there, folks visit to cafe or the bakery -- it is real life, not just a replica. You can wander down small, winding cobblestone streets and admire the various houses: each one is different from the others drom the number... More

Very nice suburb, 3 min by train from Lund, or a bit longer if you decide to bike! This place was built to look medieval, to resemble the coastal cities in the Baltics. Very beautiful for a nice promenade.

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.

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
