The old wooden houses make their mark on the town centre, offering a picturesque atmosphere with cafes, restaurants and shops. Röda Stugan, Kungsbacka’s oldest building, is now a cosy cafe where you can enjoy waffles and homemade cakes and pastries in the garden. The cottage is just a stone’s throw from Kattegattleden and the beautiful square that is framed by outdoor cafes in summer. The first Thursday of each month that isn’t a public holiday is market day in the square, as it has been for over 600 years. From Tölöberg, Kungsbacka’s oldest water tower from 1897, you can see almost the whole of Kungsbacka. Kungsbackaån river winds through the town, flowing out into Kungsbackafjorden. On the other side of the fjord, right by the sea, is Tjolöholm Castle, Sweden’s only Tudor castle. Kungsbacka is one of the top places to shop in western Sweden. The genuine and traditional are still alive, alongside with the new, modern shopping centres. Photography: Hannah Björk Photography: Louise Petersson
