Ängelholm Things to Do

  • Court House

    Sadly with scaffolding, I still want to show you what the old court house from the 1860s in its pretty square looks like. It is next to the old jail, now museum, that I mentioned in my previous tip. The scaffolding is because it was renovated to become a school.

  • Old Town Hall

    The lovely old town hall from 1775 in the main square today houses the tourist information. It became too small for the town in 1896.

    more
  • Handicraft Museum

    Hantverksmuseet is open all year round and shows local Ängelholm ceramics. There is also a collection of silverware. There are also temporary art exhibitions. The interesting thing to me though, is that the museum is housed in the old town jail. Don't miss the riverside rhododendrons in amazing bloom in summer (see second pic)!

  • Hembygdsparken Heritage Park

    Hembygdsparken is a piece of land by the river set aside for old heritage buildings like the Grönvallska gården and the Luntertungården (Ängelholm's oldest building from 1761). There is also a technical museum with motorbikes and other things, a school museum, and a mix of animals such as horses, deer, goats and parrots. If you get hungry, there is...

  • Air Force Museum

    Ängelholm has had an air base (F10) for years and these days, it has opened as a museum. You get to see some fighter planes, helicopters and different engines and can also try look at an underground radar survelliance room and climb into the seat of a "Draken" plane. If you pay a small extra fee, there is the opportunity to try a flight simulator...

    more
  • Ängelholm Church

    Ängelholm has not always had its centre this far inland. There has been a church on this site since mid 16th century and if you want to see the ruins of the earlier church, you have to head for Luntertun on the way to the beach. This new church is from 1861 (but with later interior) but has an old 15th century small bell left from the Luntertun...

    more
  • New Town Hall

    The local planners today work in a completely different building, namely the new town hall. Set by the river, it is easily distinguishable as you can see that the architect has travelled a lot in the Middle East.

    more
  • Rönne River trips

    Whatever you do, try to get here in spring or summer, when the riverside is incredibly lush. Then there are boat trips with Laxen II ("the salmon") from the town hall, through town and out to the river eastuary and the beach. You get a good 40 minute sightseeing, taking in some of the town's history, and if you want to, you can get return tickets...

    more
  • Railway Museum

    In 2006, for the jubilee of "150 years of railways in Sweden", the rail museum in Ängelholm merged with the national railway museum in Gävle to ease administration. This was probably a good move as now it gets a lot more publicity and the museums complement each other in a great way, Gävle focusing on impressive Swedish engines and some history,...

Ängelholm Restaurants

  • Wonderful Thai food outside of Thailand!

    Me and my husband recently visited Ängelholm - for its nature, its peacefulness, biking and canoeing down the river. This was the last stop on our Sweden roadtrip before heading to Denmark. Little did we know that we would find a thai restaurant of this amazing standard that would send us on a culinary experience! We came back two times during our...

  • Drinks by the beach

    Out by the beach is this nice bar and restaurant with a summery feel to it as you sit beneath the little palms. As it is by the pleasure boat harbour, it has the sand dunes in front of it so you don't actually see the sea but it is just a short walk there and you are close to the marina with its boat life. The kitchen serves meet and Mediterranean...

  • Town square meeting point

    Ängelholm's British style pub with live music on Fridays. Summertime, most of the action happens in the main square where the restaurant sets up business, and with something for everyone on the menu (prawn starters, garlic bread, steaks and chips/baked potato, grilled pork, burgers, veggie alternative...). Excellent for children in summer as they...

Ängelholm Transportation

  • Cycling

    As the rest of Scania, Ängelholm is excellent for biking and here you can go both from the town to the beach or just along the river. That is when you're not busy pedalling along the Bjäre peninsula. A set tour is the "Lergöksrundan" on around 16 kilometres - the tourist office has a map. If you don't have your own bike, try contacting the people...

  • By train

    It is easy to get to Ängelholm, both by the slow train from Gothenburg and regional trains from Malmö and Helsingborg (including some direct connections from Copenhagen too). Next to the station is the bus station if you need further connections.

    more
  • By boat

    Summertime, a boat trip with Laxen II is a great way to move around. You don't have to take a full sigtseeing tour but can hop off at the heritage park, but if you stay on, it is easily the most scenic way to the beach and back.

Ängelholm Local Customs

    Clay pigeons

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Educated Swedes and/or locals know Ängelholm as "Clay pigeon town" (Lergökasta'n) and this is because the town once had more potterers than anywhere in this clay rich region. The ocarinas were therefore created as that little extra to bring from town on market days and often given to children. Today, there is an ocarina orchestra in town which sometimes performs and it is the typical souvenir in town. You also see these yellow birds on trees and signs around town, indicating walking- or biking paths.

Ängelholm Off The Beaten Path

  • Sjalen's Profile Photo

    Luntertun

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ängelholm got its town charter in 1516 and by then it moved to the place it is now. In medieval days, the town was called Luntertun (as in the house in Hembygdsparken) and was situated almost by the rivermouth. Luntertun was however always buried in sand from the sea which is why it was abandoned. Today, you can visit it to see the ruins of the old town church and to see a nice area full of lovely houses and boats as the forest planted around the area has stopped the worst sand drifts. You see it from the river if you take a boat trip, in which case you will also see the island opposite which had a fortress on it in medieval days.

Ängelholm Sports & Outdoors

  • Canoeing

    Rönne River is excellent for canoeing and you can rent them in town (walking along the river you will see how popular it is). Glide through the quiet river landscape shown in so many other pictures on this page and enjoy the Scanian Amazones at your own pace, maybe paddle all the way to the beach (where another company has canoes for rent) for a...

    more
  • Fishing

    Of course a seaside town with a good river has to have fish. You need to have a card to be allowed to fish, and this can be bought at the tourist office or by the local taxi company to name a few. It comes in a cheap day version or you can buy for a week, a month or a season. Skåne Marin can let you a boat if you call 0431-203 00 and you can fish...

  • Bird watching

    One of Scania's if not the south of Sweden's most important bird areas, the Rönne River between Ängelholm town centre and the mouth by the Skälder Bay are a few precious kilometres where you can be spoilt with kingfishers and other rare birds. Important enough to be put on the international Ramsar list. Just make sure you are early (or later) as...

Ängelholm Favorites

  • House lovers paradise

    If you love to look at nice houses, imagining that you live there, you'd better stay out of Ängelholm as there are so many wonderful houses along the river that you'll go crazy with frustration whilst wonderinf who can afford them all. Even some apartment blocks have their own jetty in the river! I won't mention what the villas look like. Stroll...

  • Scanian Amazones

    The Rönne River is one of the best things about Scanian nature in my opinion and I felt so peaceful travelling those few kilometres between town and sea. You can see why they call it the Amazones of Scania and I saw the fallen logs as alligators. That's when I didn't expect Huckleberry Finn to pop out from behind a tree at any time.
