Here you will find many hidden gems, and there are nice facilities for both outdoor and indoor activities. Östersund also has an exciting range of culture, entertainment, sports, and club activities. There is a long tradition of organising music festivals and food events as well as international sporting events. So feel free to be a part of it.
This is the city for those who value great culinary experiences, where locally produced food and animal and environmental care are important ingredients. Choose between cosy courtyard cafés, market halls, and award-winning restaurants. Östersund and Region Jämtland Härjedalen has since 2010 been appointed the Creative City of Gastronomy by UNESCO.
