In Laholm there are plenty of child-friendly and family-friendly activities. Here’s 10 best tips for this winter!
In Laholm you will find several nice sledding hills. Vallåsen Ski Resort usually prepares one, but you can find many good places along Hallandsås’ north slope. Inside the town of Laholm there are at least two: one close to the walking trail “Hälsans stig”, by the river Lagan, and one at the playground on Slåttervägen.
Picking shells, play softball, walk or find a bench and serve a yummy picnic! The 12 km long sandy beach along the sea is beautiful all year round. In Skummeslövsstrand the sand is somewhat more packed and hard, in northern Mellbystrand it is softer and looser. At Lagaoset, where the river Lagan meets the ocean, you will find a beautiful sand dune landscape.
Hjörneredssjöarna (Hjörnered lakes) is an artificial lake system that extends from Knäred to Skogaby and is today known for its scenic outdoor life. Here you come to fish, hike, swim, canoe and tent. In the area there are a number of toilets, trash cans and fire places. Nearby you will find excursion destinations such as the Midsummer Cave (a cobblestone cave) and Vippentorpet – a cottage from the 17th century that stands in its original location.
Stroll, hike or barbecue. Osbeck’s beech forests are located on the northern slope of Hallandsås (Halland ridge), just next to a place called Hasslöv. The nature of the reserve fascinates and has been doing so for centuries. Here are rippling forest streams, rare mosses, extensive wildlife and several ancient remains. There is a toilet next to the car park, and at the eastern barbecue area there are bench tables adapted for wheelchairs.
The award-winning Town Park in central Laholm is delightful all year round. Here is something for everyone, young and old, the generally curious or the garden enthusiast. The park has two playgrounds with swings and fun slides as well as a stage where concerts are usually organized during the summer.
Under the Public Health Center’s (Folkhälsocentrum) roof you will find, among other things: four swimming pools (three of which have slides), bubble pool, sauna, gym and a café. Here, all age groups can be activated and stimulated. Outside there is a 500 square meter skate park in concrete. (Note! Closed until further due to COVID-19)
The town library in Laholm has a big and cozy section for children. Here you will find lots of picture books, in different genres, including “The Apple Shelf” with books for and about children with disabilities. Here you will also find a whole shelf dedicated for new parents and parents of small children. (Note! Closed until further due to COVID-19)
Along Stora strandvägen in Skummeslövsstrand lies Laholm’s largest playground. Here you’ll find big and small swings, fun climbing frames, football goals, toilets, bench tables and a large outdoor grill. And nearby – besides the beach and the sea of course – there are several restaurants and kiosks.
The roaring Kvarnfallet (The Old Mill waterfall) in Knäred is a scenic place where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, barbecue or just sit and admire Krokån’s flow past the 400-year-old mill. Nearby there is a large car park, a café, a museum and several walking friendly trails.
