The City The guide was updated:That Halmstad is “the city of three hearts,” as well as a famous summer city is known among the sweds. Formerly a Danish settlement, Halmstad got its first city rights in 1307, and became Swedish in 1645. A ribbon of salty beaches from the eastern parts of the city to Tylösand, has made Halmstad to all of Sweden’s bath tub. Add to that the music flowing from the city centre, from Tylösand and from all the local bars and clubs. If you’d rather enjoy a picnic there are many places to choose between. Nature is just around the corner and it is easy to move around in, try for example, a walk along the Prins Bertil foot path or a bike ride – the city’s net of bicycle lanes is extensive. Halmstad has a wide range of cultural events and there is always something interesting to do. Museums and all kinds of exhibitions as well as the historic city centre itself. Why not go for an evening walk along the picturesque Vallgatan? In Halmstad, nothing is too far away and there is always something happening! From the Look-out Tower, you get a fantastic view over the town, its surroundings and the sparkling water in the Bay of Laholm.
