The stone streets of town center are lined with cafés and taverns, all bustling with locals.

We stopped to see these beautiful Beaches during a road trip through Scandinavia. Very much reminded me of the Beaches in the UK where you need a wind break! I now live on Canada's west coast where it's quite a bit warmer at that time of year.

Galgberget

City in Sweden, off the coast

Reviewed By LisaA1972 - London, United Kingdom

Visited the old farmstead that had been reconstructed on the site back in the 20s. The children loved looking in all the little cottages and barns and the wonderful windmill. Cafe served an excellent skagen on a waffle which got my thumbs up too. A pleasant couple of hours spent in some lovely woodland for those of you who fancy a walk too.

Halmstad Stadsbibliotek

In this interesting design, hanging out over the river Nissan, and with a tree in the centre, you can find books, films, and other things for the whole family. A lot of activity here. If you have a card for the library - you can use internet for a shorter limited time.

Halmstad Arena Bad

Large changing room area with plenty of lockers although you do need a padlock to use them (this can be bought at reception). The pool water felt a little chilly but there were lots of fun chutes for the kids (and adults!).

Nissan River

Reviewed By Pargoman - Kaiserslautern, Germany

Tylosand is my Swedish favorite for many reasons: Windsurfing, swimming, the prestine nature surounding and the proximity to two of the most beautiful towns in Europe, Malmo and Gothenburg. Days in summer are loooooong; my mates and went out into the surf at 03h00 in the morning. The short nights are still offering prime partying with the young folks. Fantastic destination.

Mjellby Konstmuseum

Reviewed By Ex-expat-1964 - Stockholm, Sweden

This is not a huge museum and that is precisely what makes it so good. Mjellby knows why they exist and they stick to it: (i) to showcase the Swedish surrealist group of artists called Halmstadgruppen and (ii) to curate interesting Exhibitions of other, related artists. In 2013 it was Nils von Dardel and this summer (2014) Agnes Cleve.
The size of the museum also makes it excellent for a visit with children. The museum often does a children's version of the audiovisual tour, which has them occupied for quite a while and enables the grown-ups to enjoy what they have presumably come for.
However, please be aware that the material on display by Halmstadgruppen's artists is often a bit limited to make room for the temporary exhibition.

Danska Fall

Reviewed By pinkioxora - Halmstad, Sweden

You can come here by car or even by bus. Take the bus 145 from Halmstad bussterminal to Simlangsdalen ( get out at Ljungblomma bus stop) . From there it takes 30 to 45 minutes walk to the waterfall. Bring your lunchbox and some fruit because there is no restaurant. The view and the nature music will sooth your mind. A must for nature lover.

At the main square, and next to city hall, you will for sure see this. The church is rather old, but the organ inside was made just a few years ago. A relaxing place in the cold/hot day. Many times there are music Concerts here.

Kvinnohuvud by Pablo Picasso

It's very cool that this small town, Halmstad, has a statue of Picasso. It's huge and white, well now very dirty, needs cleaning. You will find it next to the river.
