Welcome to Älmhult - we want you to feel at home
Älmhult is in Småland, in southern Sweden, not far from the northern border of Skåne. Set out to explore Älmhult and its surrounding villages and you’ll find our little corner of Småland has hidden treasures to discover and experiences to enjoy.
We’ve laid out a rich smörgåsbord for you to sample and enjoy. Our municipality offers plenty of experiences to enjoy and adventures for the taking – the countryside, fishing, history, sights, shopping and – not to be forgotten – Småland cuisine. It’s also a place of contrasts – Älmhult is a melting pot for people from all around the world and it’s also an ideal spot to experience authentic Swedish Småland.
Today we are best known for being the birthplace of IKEA – Älmhult was where it all started for the company that is now the biggest home interiors business in the world. It was also here that the famous scientist Carl von Linné, known outside Sweden as Linnaeus, was born and spent his early life. Two people with ideas that left their mark on the entire globe.
