The big square

During the summer the big square is full of activity. You can listen to live music for free or get a beer and some food from one of the many restaurants.

The theatre

The old theatre is located in the middle of the city park, known as "Tivoliparken". The park area is a great place for same relaxation or a picnic. Bring some food and drinks and have a great day! Next to the park you find river Helge that runs through Kristianstad. During the summer you can go on canal boat tours on river Helge.
