31 HIGHLIGHTS Falkenberg – Varberg 38. Tullbron Go for a walk on Sweden’s most beautiful stone bridge, also Falkenberg’s most wellknown structure, built 1756–61. At the southern bridge abutment are the ruins of Falkenberg Fortress, which bear witness to an exciting history. It’s now a popular picnic spot. 40. Morups Tånge Morups Tånge is a beautiful nature reserve with a lot of animals. Both birds and humans come here to take a break and enjoy nature. Sit down and observe the sea life from the best seats in the house! Don’t forget your binoculars! 42. Strandpromenaden Varberg residents love to walk, cycle and jog along the beach promenade from 1912, from the openair baths in the harbour to Apelviken beach in the south. Enjoy the sharp scent of the sea and seaweed as you walk along the rocks, beaches and the worldfamous nudist beaches Käringhålan, Skarpe Nord and Goda hopp. 39. Vallarnas Friluftsområde In this oasis just outside the centre, there’s something for everyone. Children and their parents spend time in the playground, teenagers prefer the parkour and skate park, while the active like the running trail and outdoor gym. Anglers wade out into River Ätran. And precisely everyone is entranced by the beautiful Doktorspromenaden trail. Photography: Mikael Pilstrand 41. Träslövsläge - fiskeläge In Träslövsläge fishing village, south of Varberg, you can purchase fresh fish, prawns and crayfish (“lajrhommer” in the local dialect). You’ll also find a famous ice cream cafe, with a long, winding queue in summertime. The older parts of “Läjet” have streets with wellpreserved, cosy old wooden houses. The guest harbour features a popular restaurant. Photography: Owe Olsson Photography: Mikael Pilstrand 43. Varbergs fästning & Hallands kulturhistoriska museum Both the fortress and the museum are full of experiences. See Bockstensmannen, the wellpreserved remains of a man who died in the 1300s and was found in a bog outside Varberg, or go for coffee at Kaféet after a guided tour where you’ll hear stories about the exciting history of Varberg Fortress.
