35 HIGHLIGHTS Varberg – Kungsbacka Photography: Owe Olsson 44. Hamnmagasinet Hamnmagasinet is in the heart of Varberg – the area around the Societeten park, the openair baths and Varberg Fortress. This carefully renovated listed building was built in 1874. Today it is a centre for art and handicrafts. There’s an art gallery, ceramics workshop, glassworks, silver smithy and printmaking workshop. 46. Bua hamn Along the crab fishing jetty in the harbour, you’ll find a little restaurant. There you can enjoy delicious seafood and more. Walk to the lighthouse at Krokstadsudde, by the inlet. There are three designated hiking trails and great places to swim, with rocks as well as beaches. 48. Tjolöholms Slott This Tudorstyle castle from the early 1900s is stunningly located by the sea. Curious to see how they lived? There are several guided tours per day during summer. There are also bathing spots, a recreated village with workers’ houses, activities for the children and a cafe. The castle garden is always open to the public. 45. Naturum Getterön The Getterön Nature Reserve and visitors’ centre is a true paradise for birds and birdlovers alike, and one of the finest places in Northern Europe for birding. About 170 species breed or rest here regularly. You’ll find guided tours, lectures, a shop and a cafe with a great view of the area. 47. Vita Sand Vita Sand in Åsa is a shallow sandy beach with several bays suitable for bathing and low rocks for those who don’t want to get sand between their toes. Here, you can fish for crabs, play beach volleyball, have coffee or enjoy a delicious meal. The white building, in functional style, in the very south, was a popular bathing hotel in the 1930s – it’s now a folk high school. 49. Fjärås Bräcka Fjärås Bräcka is a magnificent glacial formation. Experience a unique view of both Kattegatt and Lake Lygnern. At Li burial ground there are more than 100 Iron Age menhirs. At the visitors’ centre, there’s an exhibition about the formation of Fjärås Bräcka, and the popular cafe serves homemade delicacies and dishes made with local ingredients.
