With a community of more than 27,000 residents, Karlskoga is situated in the central part of Sweden, in the beautiful province of Värmland, on Lake Möckeln.
With forests, mountains, lakes and valleys in abundance in this part of Sweden, outdoor sports such as hiking, boating, fishing, cycling, camping, swimming and skiing are very popular among residents.
Karlskoga is just the right size, large enough to find everything you will need yet small enough to make it easy to reach everything by bike or on foot. The city has a housing market with very attractive pricing, considering Örebro (Sweden´s sixth biggest city) is just a 30 minutes’ drive away.
Karlskoga is also well known for being Alfred Nobel’s last residence in Sweden and home of the Nobel Prize.
