The town was founded in 1614 by the Danish King Christian IV as a fortress town to serve as Skåne's bulwark against Sweden. In 1612, Swedish troops had destroyed the important trading town of Væ in north-eastern Skåne. Christian IV encouraged the citizens of Væ to move to the new town of Kristianstad. Kristianstad still has its founder Christian IV's monogram, a 4 in a crowned C, in its coat of arms and uses it extensively on lamp posts and other municipal installations. It is the only city in the world to have the monogram of a foreign king in its coat of arms. Find child-friendly hotels in the area and set off on a family holiday at your own pace with Risskov.
