The CityThe guide was updated:In this perfect location close to the sea, forests and hills, enjoying life is easy, every day! The river Rönne runs through the town centre and enters the sea in Skälderviken, adding to the pleasant atmosphere. Six kilometres of sandy beaches, the Kronoskogen forest and the picturesque town centre are other appealing features of Ängelholm. The town was founded by Danish king Christian II in 1516 and started attracting large numbers of tourists at the beginning of the 20th century, when one of Sweden’s first urban summer residential areas – Ängelholms Havsbad – was planned and built here. Ängelholm is charming both to visit and live in and it has its share of celebrities, like singer Jill Johnsson, former NHL player Kenny Jönsson and food creator Rickard Nilsson.
