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

Nice place in Lund to take a stroll and look at the beautifully preserved medieval buildings. Really recommend it.

You find this special place that revives a building style from the historical period dominated by Hansean city states around the East Sea not close to the sea and a harbour, but in open country close to a train station. Besides the buildings ttemselves there is not much to be seen or experienced - especially you should not expect to... More

I live here, so it's a bit surreal. I love the town, it's so pretty...but visit soon , since it's not well kept and it's sort of dead. It has such a potential. The owners do not take in show keepers or small businesses ,unfortunately, in all the empty and potential shops.

Go here to take photos and stroll around. Or go here for dinner or when there is an event. Christmas market is always good

Not many local authorities would have issued a building permit for these apartment houses. Not that they do not fulfill all current building regulations - they do - but who would want a mini Lübeck put up in the middle of a field? But that is exactly what you are going to see. Here you will find cobble stone streets,... More

I live just over the train track, and have therefore been to Jakriborg many times. The apartments and houses are very picturesque, but to be honest, that's about it. There is one main street with cobbles that are ridiculously hard going on your feet, and there are several shops (supermarket, vets, café/restaurant, pizza shop), but it would take you literally...

With 2 streets worth walking the place is small and overrated. Of course the houses were cute and cozy, but it wasn't worth the time. We did go the wrong time of the year, so you might be better of if you come in the summer.
