In Laholm there are plenty of child-friendly and family-friendly activities. Here are our 10 best tips for this season!

The Museum of Drawings

Teckningsmuseet, or The Museum of Drawings, is the only museum of drawings in the Nordics. Here you can see exhibitions by national and international artists as well as artworks from the museum’s collection. Downstairs you’ll also find Laholm’s pottery museum.


Swim, pick shells, play softball, walk or find a bench and enjoy 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 more soft and loose. 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 camp. There are a number of toilets, trash cans and fire places in the area. 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 village 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 wc 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.


At the Public Health Center’s (Folkhälsocentrum) you will find, among other things, four swimming pools (three of which have slides), bubble pool, sauna, gym and a café. People of all ages find activities and stimulation here. There is also a 500 square meter concrete skate park outdoors.


The town library in Laholm has a big and cozy section for children. There are many picture books of various genres, including “The Apple Shelf” with books for and about children with disabilities. You will also find a section dedicated to new parents and parents of small children.


Along Stora strandvägen in Skummeslövsstrand lies Laholm’s largest playground. Here you’ll find big and small swings, fun climbing frames, football goals, restrooms, 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, use the grill 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 trails suitable for walking.
