Obegripligt hur Glassiären där man säljer glass av billigt fabrikat kan vara så populär när det finns två lokala producenter av hemgjord glass. Turistfälla. Incomprehensible how this place can still be so poular, selling ice-cream from a cheap brand when there is two excellent local...producers of ice-cream. Find them instead of visiting this tourist-trap.More

We came here with three hungry children and all had really nice foccaccias. Great staff but a bit slow service.

Had a great stop at the “must go to place” in Karlskrona. The weather wasn’t the best but on the positive side there was hardly any people in line. We went for a Glasiären special so scope ice cream with soft serve on top. They...make their own cones but being celiac I settled for a cup. My boyfriend however said the cone was really good. The ice cream portions are huge so it was a good substitute for lunch. Will defiantly visit again next time.More

This was something we definitely wanted to try. On our return from Kalmar, and dying for some ice-cream, we were pointed towards Kalmar by on-line reviews. Already upon spotting the parlour, with a long queue outside extending almost to the street, we realised we might...have struck gold. And yes, the experience was worth it. When choosing between one, two or three flavours, bear in mind that they don't say 'scoops', they say flavours, and you get a load of each. I went for three flavours and had difficulty getting to the end of my ice-cream. I certainly did not need to have dinner once back home in the evening. The only minus point could be the texture of the ice-cream I had, which was not creamy enough and had a few lumps.More

This ice cream parlor is renowned in Sweden for their on-site making of a plethora of rich ice cream & sorbets, along with a broad assortment of toppings. Being a balmy summer evening, there was a long queue out the door & into the street,...a testament to the quality & richness of their tasty treats. The 40 minute wait in line was worth it for a large cone, where cones & cups of ice cream are ordered by flavors, where you receive 3 scoops of ice cream for each flavor. I ordered two flavors in a waffle cone, equaling 6 scoops of ice cream, roughly 400 g! I was in hog heaven! They even added an additional small scoop free of charge when I wanted to sample one extra flavor! Another plus is you can watch staff make waffle cones on site, a sight to see in itself.More

Imagine the biggest ice cream cone you can think of. Now imagine filling it with as much ice cream as possible – and then some. That is what you get at Glassiären. Be prepared to stand in line for a while, especially if the weather...is good. This place is popular!More

My kids just loved it! Probably the ice cream wasn't "homemade very special organic cow", but hey - who cares if you get an ice cream the size of your own head! Picture: two scoops around 50 SEK, no line and friendly staff.

The only place in Karlskrona with a long queue. Amazing ice cream with large portion size. Choose the size based on your appetite.

The ice cream is wonderful, but be prepared for a sugar high! If you order 3 flavors, you need a wheel barrow to help you hold the cone! Each flavor ordered gives you not one, but 3 scoops of icecream! Beware of gluttony!! We saw...some children toting cones that weighed as much as they did!! Seriously this is a must experience shop in Karlskrona. Waiting in the line, especially if you are lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day, is a purely Swedish experience! The tiny little tables inside behind the counter are comfy & have a little air conditioning!More

In homemade sugar cones! I had the rum raisin and pear ice cream with sprinkles. Two scoops are more like four... don’t ask for too many if you aren’t hungry!
