“The small town with the great artwork”

There is a sculpture in nearly every corner of the town centre. Laholm is therefore called “the small town with the great artwork”. The collection was started by the legendary mayor Axel Malmqvist, who bought and donated 16 sculptures to Laholm from the income of the annual theatre play “Lagaholmsspelen” (1933–1968). Since then the collection has increased and today nearly 40 pieces of artwork by prominent artists are placed all over Laholm. Go on an art-walk of your own or pick up an art map at the tourist information centre (, +46 430-154 51).
