Visited for a Xmas market in december. The market was worth the visit but Jakriborg itself was a disappointment. Seems like something that would be interesting to visit but there isn't realy anything do except wander around and look at copies of medieval building exteriors....More

This little town was planned to resemble a medieval German village with its typical architecture. People live there, children play there, folks visit to cafe or the bakery -- it is real life, not just a replica. You can wander down small, winding cobblestone streets...More

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...More
