From boarding school to modern conference centre!
In 1990 the Sigtunaskolan boarding school was converted into the Hotel Kristina hotel and conference centre. The buildings are in the functionalist style of the 1930s and still hold many memories from their era as a constant in the lives of the students who spent a major part of their time here.
Many original features were preserved in the comprehensive refurbishment that was done and the hotel’s interior today reflects a 1930s design with a lot of colour and style.
The students’ rooms have become hotel rooms and what was the separate assembly hall is Hotel Kristina’s own “Teater”, or theatre, today.
The name Kristina came about because, according to legend, Queen Kristina rode from her hunting lodge over the hills where the hotel is situated, to Wenngarn Castle.
